Play Where You Are

Enjoy these world premier plays from 8 amazing playwrights at home with your family, friends, roommates, or all by yourself!

How do you do it?
First rule is there are no rules! Okay, there is one rule: Activate your imagination! These plays can be performed around the dinner table, in your pajamas, in your backyard, or can simply be read aloud by yourself or with others. No props, costumes, or sets required – but if you are feeling up to it, give it a try! What might you have around your home that you can use? What happens if you read the play once and then switch and play a new character?

Enjoy, have fun, and if you have any photos or videos of your performing, we would love you to tag them #lajollaplayhouse on social media!
