Event Notes

× PlayGround-LA, Los Angeles’s incubator for a new generation of playwrights, caps off its eighth season on Monday evening, April 20, with Best of PlayGround-LA, a one-night gala celebration of the best playwrights and short plays selected from more than 150 submissions and 36 works developed as part of the season’s Monday Night PlayGround staged reading series. NOTE: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and current shelter-in-place order, this year’s gala event will be live streamed only via Zoom on April 20, with actors performing remotely. The Gala will feature an all-star performance of the six Best of PlayGround winners and, at the conclusion of the evening, audience members will participate in the selection of the People’s Choice Award and recipient of the 2020 PlayGround-LA full-length play commission. On-demand tickets are $15. Ticket purchasers will receive a private link to view an on-demand recorded performance, upon completion of the show on April 20. All proceeds support PlayGround-LA’s playwright incubator programs.

None of Your Business by Rachel Borders
