Since 2008, the Los Angeles Short Play Festival (formerly LA Views) presents a select group of diverse writers that embrace and reflect on a different City of Angels theme. Past festivals have featured stories from L.A.’s history to its contemporary concerns. Themes 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. In 2019, our theme tomorrowLAnd explored the idyllic concept of a tomorrow land and the idealism that nurtured the origins of modern Los Angeles and its eventual future blossoming or decay.
"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."
