L.A. as D.N.A.

Venues Around L.A.

L.A. as D.N.A.

Center Theatre Group partners with local artists, theatre companies, and libraries to present English and Spanish play readings every month.

Meet Luna, a late-blooming L.A. girl. Unaware of her own hybrid clan lineage, this urbanite abruptly finds that merely getting by isn’t going to cut it anymore. Drying mountains, cracking concrete, and the incoming marine layer are awakening her mixed clan’s unstable enemies. Life now threatened, Luna embarks on a journey that takes her through territories that exist in and between her cells, the streets of L.A., and the genetic braid (xochimecatl) that forever connects ancestor, migrator, and earth. Presented in English.

As always, play readings are free, open to the public, and designed to be enjoyed by audiences of all ages.
