2015-2016 Season Information

S/he and Me Production

S/he & Me

September 25 - October 11
Studio Theatre

A celebration in words and music of the intense relationships and love affairs we all have with our past. Seen through the eyes of actress and singer Alexandra Billings, this one-act musical play is a non-linear dramatization of her life – introducing us to her parents, her wife, and Scott (the boy she used to be). S/he & Me threads together the moments – dramatic and domestic – that complete the vivid portrait of her triumphant self. Her story is our portal to understanding and acceptance. Alexandra Billings starts in this autobiographical cabaret, and is currently appearing on Amazon’s Golden Globe winning hit, Transparent.

Far Away Production Poster

Far Away

November 13 - December 5
University Theatre

A young girl witnesses a horrible event – or is it an act of revolution? In a series of three scenes, Joan grows up, discovering and acting against a violent world that is evolving around her. A sinister farm house, a beautiful parade, and a nation overtaken by animals play a part in Joan’s ever changing life. But is she changing the world or is the world changing her? One of the most influential living playwrights still writing, British playwright Caryl Churchill creates a haunting dystopian polemic about individual change.

Mutual Consent Production Poster

Mutual Consent

February 12 - February 21
Studio Theatre

In an intriguing blend of absurdity and lyricism, this vignette-style drama tells the story of how multiple couples navigate love, marriage, commitment, and the pressures of real life. A reading of Mutual Consent was held Thursday, September 3 at 7PM, as part of the CSULB Theatre Arts Affinity series. This afforded the audience a chance to hear the work and comment, providing feedback that will be used and incorporated into the fully staged production this spring.
