Presented for 11 nights starting Saturday, March 21st, the festival features 8 new short plays by Los Angeles based playwrights that pose the question: What are the specifics, the nuances, the strife and successes of L.A life that impacts a relationship like no other city can?

It's All ReLAtional explores the intricacies of human intimate relationships and how living in Los Angeles colors those relationships.

Since 2008, the Los Angeles Short Play Festival (formerly L.A Views) presented a select group of diverse writers that embrace and reflect on a different City of Angels theme. Past festivals have featured stories from L.A.'s history to its contemporary concerns. Themes have explored L.A. hunger, gentrification, the economic recession, the 20th year anniversary of the civil unrest of April 29, 1992, and silent film legend residents of the historic Alexandria Hotel in downtown Los Angeles. In 2019, our theme tomorrowLAnd explored the idyllic concept of a tomorrowland and the idealism that nurtured the origins of modern Los Angeles and its eventual future blossoming or decay.
"With the Los Angeles Short Play Festival, Company of Angels continues its commitment to support diverse L.A based artists and to tell stories from unique underrepresented voices." said Armando Molina, Artistic Director.
