Bonnie in Brighton

There isn't a program to explain if the series of parental-nightmare escapades experienced by a recent college graduate from Texas, hiding behind her alter ego "Bonnie" while living a crazed year's existence on the British seaside, are based on Erin Parks' real-life adventures—and the script credited to Guy Picot helps keep the authenticity of the piece a mystery. Either way, the staging here is continuously clever, and Parks is an infectious performer who successfully drags us along into her adopted world of drug-smuggling and fleeting romances, making us lose our inhibitions and innocence right along with her.

Presented by Wasif Productions at Theatre Asylum, 6320 Santa Monica Blvd., Hollywood. Thu., June 17, 7 p.m.; Fri., June 18, 10:30 p.m.; Sat.-Sun., June 19-20, 2:30 p.m.; Mon., June 21, 8:30 p.m. (866) 811-4111.
