Spring Season


Dreamers: Aquí y Allá (Here and There)

February 16 – 25, 2018
Studio Theatre
A California Repertory Production

The Dreamers are students and adults without legal status who were brought into America by their parents as children. The story of their journeys and their fight to call America home is told in this production devised in collaboration with the California-Mexico Studies Center. Featuring testimonials and interviews from DACA students and community members, these stories of personal struggle invite the question: who gets to dream the American Dream?

The Dreamers continues the Devising Democracy Series: a four-year long endeavor of producing original, devised work that confronts the burning issues of our time. These productions link to other devised works on other CSU and UC campuses – to spark conversation around issues of democracy, action, and activism.

The California-Mexico Studies Center (CMSC) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit whose mission is to research, develop, promote, and establish policies and programs between higher educational institutions and cultural organizations that will enhance the teaching, mobility and exchange of faculty, students, and professionals between California and the U.S. with Mexico and other nations in the Western Hemisphere. CMS Center was founded by the California State University Long Beach Professor Armando Vazquez-Ramos in 2010 as an extension of the California-Mexico Project that he has led since 1998 at the CSULB Chicano and Latino Studies department.

We Are Proud to Present a Presentation About the Herero of Namibia, Formerly Known as South West Africa, From the German Sudwestafrika, Between the Years 1884-1915

March 9 – 17, 2018
University Theater
A California Repertory Production

Six actors work to create a presentation about a little-known genocide in Africa. As they seek the story behind the facts, questions emerge: What is the story, exactly? Who are the people inside it? Who gets to tell it? As histories converge and lines get blurry, the artistic exploration gives way to…something else; leaving yet another question: can we ever escape our own story?

Antigone X

March 23 – April 8, 2018
Studio Theatre
A California Repertory Production

Thebes is now a ruin surrounded by refugee camps. Police violence, terrorists, predators, demagogues abound. This contemporary meditation on love, power and war is based on the classic by Sophocles. In this multi-media adaptation, LA-based writer Paula Cizmar poses a question that has lingered for two thousand years: who will dare defy authoritarian rule and follow the higher laws of love and decency?

End Days

April 27 – May 12, 2018
Players Theatre
A California Repertory Production

This award-winning play is centered on sixteen-year-old goth atheist Rachel Stein and the wacky universe of people in her orbit: her mother is busily awaiting the Rapture; her father hasn’t changed out of his pajamas since 9/11; her new neighbor is an Elvis impersonator who has a crush on her; on top of all that the Apocalypse is approaching. Will Stephen Hawking be the one to save them all?
