Through the Looking Glass

Off Sale

Through the Looking Glass seeks to foster a dialogue between the communities of Montebello and Leimert Park by creating a play inspired by individual residents’ autobiographies—written not by themselves but their counterparts in the other community.

For seven months, Center Theatre Group and performer and spoken word poet Jerry Quickley are hosting workshops with 15 residents of Montebello and 15 residents of Leimert Park, encouraging them to learn and write about themselves, their neighborhoods, and one another.

Using the material produced in the workshops, Jerry will write a play that explores the preconceptions Montebello and Leimert Park have about each other, and what happens when these ideas and reality collide. Participants will perform live stage readings in both Montebello and Leimert Park, culminating in a performance at Center Theatre Group’s Kirk Douglas Theatre on February 8, 2016.
