This weekend on the City Garage YouTube channel, we’re happy to present our made-for-streaming project “Four From “10 x 10” by Neil LaBute. LaBute is one of our favorite playwrights, someone who is willing to take an unflinching look at the truth of things. Not afraid to shock or offend. He pulls no punches and is always after the hard truth of what people do and why they do it. This project was a lot of fun to create. Not your usual online piece but a real cinema/theater experience! It was sponsored in part by a grant from the City of Santa Monica through the Department of Cultural Affairs.
It launches this Friday, June 18th at 8:00pm (PCT). Please check it out and send the link to your friends.
It’s free to view but we ask people to make a donation if they can through our “Support Us” page on our website:
And on our web series “Animal Farm: Conversations on Theater and Politics with Steven Leigh Morris and Guests,” Steven talks with Beatrice Casagran and Vanessa Stewart about their lobbying efforts to pass California Santa Bill 805, which intends to help small nonprofits weather the huge challenge of AB5 and (perhaps) give them the resources to comply.
Here is a link to talk show:
And merci to our donors of this last week, Emyr Gravell (from Wales!) and Tom Shima. We appreciate your kind donations.
More news coming soon as we make plans for re-opening. In the meantime, stay safe, get your vaccine, and we hope to see you soon at City Garage.
