SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA PREMIERE! Set in 1988, this highly theatrical play tells the story of three Black teens in a wealthy, midwestern suburb as they struggle with cultural isolation, family pressures, and the elusive adolescent task of discovering, asserting, and valuing themselves. HOW WE GOT ON is simultaneously anthropology, nostalgia, and a feel-good coming-of-age tale. It's for those of us who grew up back in the day and those who never knew.

Performing in the Broadwater Black Box (Entrance at 6322 Santa Monica Blvd.)

Monday, Feb. 7: DONATE WHAT YOU CAN. It's "Pay What You Can" with a twist! All proceeds for this performance will be donated to L.A.C.E.R. Afterschool Programs, who help young people tell their stories and see them performed in their communities. Tickets available soon!
