While we’re all doing our part to stay at home and stay safe, we’d like to offer our community the chance to stream Cedar Riverside, a site specific play we did a staged reading of on March 6 in Los Angeles. We’re thrilled how the taping turned out, and how immediate the performances felt. You can also support the play’s Fall 2020 production, as well as our Summer Reading Series, by making a donation below.

OUR MISSION

The Group Theater is our inspiration. That legendary company from the 1930s gave new meaning to the concept of political theater when they produced Clifford Odet’s WAITING FOR LEFTY and AWAKE AND SING. We aim to bring that same energy to a new generation of theatergoers, by fostering drama geared toward social justice.
