The Award-Winning Chalk Repertory Theatre with funding from L.A. City’s Department of Cultural Affairs announces the launch of its new audio play series Chalk Lines.
Five short plays using immersive audio storytelling will bring to life unsung landmarks in Los Angeles City Council districts 8, 9, and 10 including the Metro Expo Line, Leimert Park, Historic West Adams, and Exposition Park.
Chalk Lines continues Chalk Rep’s 13-year tradition of revealing the spaces and stories of Los Angeles in all its beautiful, complex diversity. The company was founded on principles of equity, diversity, and inclusion, anti-racist practices, and identity-conscious casting. Chalk Lines features underexplored communities, BIPOC and LGBTQ perspectives, and a diverse creative team.
Chalk Lines playwrights: Giovanni Adams (actor/playwright; Love is a Dirty Word); Luis Alfaro (award-winning Chicano writer known for his work in poetry, theater, short stories, performance and journalism); Kimrie Lewis (actor/writer/director, currently stars in NBC’s new sitcom Kenan); Joseph Guy Maldonado (director/playwright/TV writer; Award-winning Hello Boys and Girls, or The Big Bird Play); and Colette Robert (director/playwright). All writers grew up in Los Angeles and/or live in the neighborhoods where their stories take place.
Chalk Lines can be experienced online at home or on location at each site with a mobile device.
