“Because Our Stories Matter!” A Workshop Intensive

This workshop series will guide the participants to trust in the validity of their own experiences and/or point of view and go to that raw place in a safe and supportive environment to create an authentic and unique theatrical piece (monologues are not encouraged!). Don’t tell the audience how it felt, present it in a way that the audience feel what you felt.
Based on methodology used in The Depression Chronicles, 30 Plays in 60 Minutes, L.A.W. Lewd Asian Women and most other Lucky Chaos productions,

People of color and other underrepresented groups strongly encouraged to participate.
