Tarell Alvin McCraney's latest acclaimed play tracks the coming-of-age of a group of talented young African-American prep-school singers whose choral prowess is woven seamlessly into the story. Pharus, the undisputed superstar of the choir, is searching for the courage to let his true self shine through, in this work by MacArthur Fellowship-winner McCraney (The Brother/Sister Plays), who's been called "without question, the hottest young playwright in America" (Chicago Tribune). The West Coast premiere reunites director Trip Cullman, star Jeremy Pope and several other cast members from its 2013 New York run. Learn More

“There is no greater crime than abandoning your history.”
The inaugural project of West Coast Ensemble’s Diversity Outreach Initiative, Lynne Nottage’s Fabulation: or the Re-Education of Undine takes a satirical look at stereotypes at both ends of the social spectrum. Undine Barnes Calles is a successful entrepreneur at the top of her game. When her husband suddenly disappears after embezzling all of her money, Undine retreats to her childhood home in Brooklyn’s Walt Whitman projects, only to discover that she must cope with a crude new reality. Undine’s riches-to-rags journey from wealthy PR diva to welfare mother is a thought-provoking comeuppance tale with a comic twist. Hailed as “clever and consistently entertaining” by Variety and “robustly entertaining” by the New York Times, Fabulation: or the Re-Education of Undine is funded in part by a generous grant from the City of Los Angeles Cultural Affairs Department.
