The Vagrancy annually selects a group of playwrights with diverse perspectives to join their playwrights' group. This year's theme is "when the political becomes personal."

BLOSSOMING 2020: the virtual edition is the first public reading of these five original plays which have been rehearsed, recorded, edited and illustrated. Be inspired, have a glass (or bottle) of wine, and help the plays development along with post-reading audience talkbacks via Zoom.

After reserving a ticket, you will receive a link to the pre-recorded play 15 minutes before the performance time as well as a link to the live Zoom talkback with the playwright and director. The link to the play will expire after 6 days.

TICKETS: PAY WHAT YOU WANT. All funds contribute to payment for the artists; suggested ticket price is $10.00. 10% of ticket sales go to bail out funds for arrested protestors.

WHEN: Every Tuesday in June at 5PM PDT with a live talkback via Zoom at 7:30PM PST

These performances are made possible in part by a grant from the City of Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs and the Los Angeles Department of Arts and Culture

Her best friend, Bucket, is in a similar state and one day decides to become a Life Coach/Motivator. As Bucket learns new techniques to face his lifes challenges, Kranbary notices that Bucket has forgotten a portion of his negative memories. Shes turned off by Buckets sudden intense positivity and begins to pull away from their friendship.

Naomi and Kiran have a nice life together. They work from home. They get their groceries delivered. They binge-watch streaming TV shows. But the earthquakes just wont stop. And when Naomis destitute cousin unexpectedly appears on their doorstep, he brings the reality of the outside world--decimated by the effects of climate change--in with him, and their lives are shaken up even more. What are our obligations to family? How different are they from our obligations to strangers? Our obligations to our partners? Ourselves? SLOWLY AND THEN ALL AT ONCE examines the ways that our health, our safety, and our futures are inextricably intertwined with the well-being of our planet.


WHEN WE BREATHE by Jaisey Bates

ENCORE performance: Thursday, June 18th 2020 5PM PDT

Two twins. Half-siblings. Strangers. Their authoress, four days gone. A sheep that speaks, recently deceased. A coyote. Possibly supernatural. A stormy night. Probably supernatural. A history-haunted mine-contaminated sacred storied thirsty imagined land. A play that asks: Who are we? Who will be the 'we' we write?


WALK LIKE AN EGYPTIAN by Tamadhur Al-Aqeel
Directed by Rachel Park
Tuesday, June 23rd 2020 5PM PDT & Thursday, June 25th 2020 @ 5PM PDT

In an LA of the near future where water and food shortages are the norm, performance artist Miriam Louisa is hiding from the government in her parent's garage. After the suspicious death of her father, and witnessing strangers in the neighborhood stealing garbage, Miriam kidnaps both thieves only to discover they are part of a government program to steal DNA to plant at crime scenes. What follows between the prisoners and their captor becomes an argument over the role of the individual during a time of repression.
