About The Play

The Studio@620 presents the world premiere of a new play by student playwright Jonathan Van Gils, Directed by Bob Devin Jones.  This play centers around three characters: Hugo, The Producer, and Rachel.

Hugo is a young, homeless man; also a filmmaker.

"HUGO"The Producer, a drug dealing, pot smoking, Joni Mitchell superfan, Pellegrino swindling social revolutionary, leader of the band Snack Attack, and movie producer.

Rachel, a lustrous, University student, writer with cinematic aspirations; also young.

All three of these characters come together to work, live, and party in Hugo's loft. The goal is to manifest Hugo's long lost screenplay, but The Producer has other ideas in mind (involving a post-modern revolution). The play includes original music by Alex Van Gils as well as songs from Wilco, Joni Mitchell, Jennifer Trynin, etc. Hugo is a story about the creative process in general, dancing, filmmaking, conversations, revolutions, spanglish,  social constructs, Buddhism, smoking, music, fights, romance, friends and Mr. P. 

The play was written by Jonathan Van Gils and is directed by Bob Devin Jones.
