Let us tell you a new story. . . in a new way!
This season we’re serving up SIX fresh-picked* plays on California’s Central Coast.
PCPA will be presenting a different, ground-breaking play every weekend -
September 18th to October 24th.
I'm way too excited to get to help helm this series and to have the chance to direct and be in some of these readings.
Stick around after the readings for talkbacks with the actors, directors, and even interviews with the playwrights themselves!
InterPlay is a ticketed event (just $5!!) and will be performed LIVE! in Zoom webinar format - so no need to worry if you’re camera shy.

Also. Pretty much all the strawberries come from here - we like our plays and our produce fresh.
Each month, registered participants will receive a copy of the play, along with discussion questions, and list of pivotal scenes to consider. Then, on the last Monday of each month, The Rediscovery Reading Club will meet over Zoom for a spirited discussion of the script from the comfort of your own home. The discussion will be moderated by PCPA Literary Associate, Emily Trask, and select scenes and moments from the play will be acted and explored by your favorite PCPA artists to illuminate the text in a whole new way!
