What Matters Now 2019

‘What Matters Now’
gives voice to playwrights across the U.S

What Matters Now?/! (Another Political Pop-Up of the Theatrical Kind) — Open Fist’s annual “political pop-up” features a rotating roster of short plays by writers from across the country that explore our nation’s current social and political climate and how the past year has affected us. Finding it hard to get off the couch and get to the theater? Open Fist has brought the couches to Atwater Village Theatre, creating a cozy, speakeasy setting where patrons can arrive early or stay late to have a drink and a chat with the cast and fellow audience members.
