Five short plays inspired by San José community members, their experiences with COVID, and the issues we're facing together. Presented by More Más Marami Arts


About this event
The Neighborhood Theatre Project is a completely original theatrical experience that explores experiences we have felt as a community over the past two years. Created with the help from youth, parents, teachers, elders--everyone who makes up our neighborhoods--we are proud to bring these performances to life.

After hosting workshops, focus groups, and community interviews, our local writers have written five unique plays inspired by San José residents and their pandemic experiences.

Join us for our August Tour of San José where we will be touring the Neighborhood Theatre Project and performing in community spaces like street markets, museums, and gardens!
