November 22nd at 6 PM 

Join Playwrights Project for Ceremonial Stories of Spiritual Journeys, a free San Diego Rep Surround Event in the Lyceum Theatre lobby at 6:00 pm on Sunday, November 22, before the evening show of The Oldest Boy. Professional actors will perform short scripts focused on rites of passage as depicted by San Diegans who are currently incarcerated. The writing was developed in Playwrights Project's Out of the Yard program, provided in partnership with Richard J. Donovan Correctional Facility.

Venture Galactic has landed!

Many thanks to those space travelers who helped with the test flights of Venture Galactic's Astral Pathfinder this weekend. Most nights we made it to our new planet of Oneiros, and only once returned home to a desolate Earth. We debated and contemplated as we drafted new charters to govern civilization in our Vertically Integrated City of Infinity.  Playwrights Project and Todd Blakesley (the creator, director and mastermind behind Venture Galactic), thank The San Diego Foundation which supported this interactive theatre experience through their Creative Catalyst Fellowship. 

Don't forget to take the voyager survey about your experiences aboard at!

Work from Playwrights Project's Out of the Yard program entertained guests at The San Diego Foundation's "Orange is the New Black" Benefit for Second Chance, and helped to tell the story of participants in Second Chance's programs. Second Chance is a local nonprofit that creates opportunities for people to transform their own lives through programs that provide job readiness and life skills training. Programs include but are not limited to: job placement, behavioral health and prisoner re-entry services, relapse prevention and sober-living housing for adults and youth in need. 
The benefit also featured guest speaker, Piper Kerman, author of #1 New York Times bestseller Orange is the New Black, the memoir which became the inspiration behind the successful Netflix series of the same name. 

Playwright and Teaching Artist Mabelle Reynoso, author Piper Kerman and Playwrights Project's Executive Director Cecelia Kouma.
