Streamed Live via Zoom
PCPA brings back InterPlay readings from February 26 through March 20 – with four new plays, each being read twice over the course of four weekends. The readings are all live streamed via Zoom. The series includes The Mountaintop, Into the Breeches!, Two Degrees, and Fade. Performances are 7pm Fridays and 1:30pm on Saturdays. $10 per viewer or $40 for all four. A special $100 VIP pass includes all four play readings plus a special event with the authors of the plays on Thursday, February 18 at 7pm which includes a $60 donation to #PCPAStrong.
Literary Associate Emily Trask said that she is eager to share these wonderful new plays with our audiences. “I’m thrilled that, by popular demand, our InterPlay series will be returning to PCPA this spring. We will be introducing four more ‘fresh’ plays, by four fantastic, diverse, and exciting playwrights, to the Central Coast – where we cultivate not just great agriculture but also great art!”
This spring’s InterPlay series concludes with Fade by Tanya Saracho. A story that balances diversity, class, and culture in a bitter-sweet comedy. Lucia has landed a writing job for a major TV show. But, her “token” position as the “diversity hire” backs her into a corner and shakes her confidence. As she comes out of her shell, after befriending the Latino janitor, her credibility and status among the Hollywood elite builds, but ultimately raises the question of “who gets to tell your story?” Fade plays Friday, March 19 and Saturday, March 20. It’s directed by Christian Arteaga and features guests Carolina Morones as Lucia and Stefan Espinosa as Abel, the reader is Leo Cortez.
