Have you ever witnessed a play inside a merry-go-round? Santa Monica Public Theatre presents An Illegal Start inside the historic Hippodrome building on Santa Monica Pier. The drama begins on a thunderstruck night in 1980s rural western Colorado, where an old amusement park merry-go-round (hence the setting) becomes a refuge for two young men after a near-fatal accident. The play was written by the pier's deputy director, James Harris, and is directed by Paul Sand, founder of SMPT.
