WEST ADAMS Featured On Skylight LIVE, July 30

Skylight Theatre presents a stream of the play WEST ADAMS. Written by Penelope Lowder & Directed by Michael A. Shepperd, 3:00pm Thursday, July 30, 2020.

The cast includes Andrés M. Bagg, Allison Blaize, Clayton Farris, and Jenny Soo.

WEST ADAMS is a contemporary, dark, comedy about race and class. With a hostile takeover of a neighborhood block party, Penelope Lowder's newest play set in historic West Adams takes an uncomfortable look at altruistic gentrification gone wrong. Perhaps reshaping a newly adopted neighborhood in your image isn't as lofty as one might think.

Earlier this year the company performed this production of WEST ADAMS, the 2020 LA Times "Critics Choice" play about the absurdity of racism. Some thought it went too far, others felt it didn't go far enough. Since the death of George Floyd conversations have changed.

Join a special dialogue after watching the archival recording of WEST ADAMS as it was performed before an audience at Skylight Theatre. Post show guests will include the writer, director, and cast. Tickets available at: https://ci.ovationtix.com/34914/production/1030560?performanceId=10556007
