Welcome to Sacred Fools Theater Company, est. 1997

The Box: Los Angeles

a Narrative Experiment in Late Night Theater
directed by Adriana Colón, Rebecca Larsen & Jaime Robledo
produced & created by Padraic Duffy & Hans Gelpke

MARCH 3 - 25, 2017
Fridays & Saturdays @ 11pm

IN OUR BLACK BOX SPACE - 6322 Santa Monica Blvd.

From the Creators of Serial Killers! THE BOX: LOS ANGELES is an experiment in randomly generated narrative. Given a collection of characters and settings from which to choose, writers created fragments- small scenes and snippets that will then be put together randomly and performed each night. The hope is that a story will emerge - one that is dark, mysterious, and moving.

There are a million different stories in THE BOX. In the end, we will hear just one.

If you would like to see all 60 scenes, come to all four Fridays OR all four Saturdays! Though the scenes are chosen randomly, no scene will be performed twice over the course of each 4-week track.

Tickets are Donate-What-You-Can!
Reserve a seat online and pay at the door.
