Armando Molina

LA Views short play festival provides an opportunity for Los Angeles based playwrights to be inspired by and write about Los Angeles. We are grateful for our Playwrights’ Group, which continues to explore all that is meaningful for us as artists, but also to mirror the concerns of our fellow denizens in this great City of ours. 

– Armando Molina, Artistic Director

Launched in 2008, the LA Views short play festival comprised of a select group of diverse, award-winning writers embrace a different City of Angels theme each year. Each year the members of the playwrights group and invited guest playwrights  under the direction of the of the Artistic leadership choose an LA theme. In the past we have chosen stories from L.A.’s history to its contemporary concerns, the LA Views festivals have explored L.A. hunger, gentrification, the economic recession, the 20th year anniversary of the civil unrest of April 29, 1992 and silent film legend residents of the historic Alexandria Hotel in downtown Los Angeles.
