Last evening, the Arts District based theater company hosted a reading of "Bureau of Missing Persons," a new play written by Lila Rose, a recent grad from the UCSD MFA Playwriting program and a Shank Fellow at Cornerstone. The smart use of Bedlam's renovated performance space (once Al's Bar) proves that if there's a location with enough room to fit actors and an audience, Cornerstone Theater Company will find it.
They will also find the stories. The discovery of community will continue with the next Justice Cycle play, the Environmental Justice/LA River project written by Julie Hébert and directed by Juliette Carrillo.
If you have a long time interest in the L.A. River, Cornerstone wants you to audition. They write:
I hope those in Boyle Heights and Lincoln Park look to be represented by auditioning.
Why the L.A. River? Cornerstone muses:
If you are interested in getting up in front of a live audience who share your story, Cornerstone Theater would like you to make an appointment by calling 213 613-1700, extension 37.
