Created to provide vibrant opportunities for theater students during the “Stay at Home” order in California, Alone, Together is a celebration of innovation, ingenuity, and generosity. Inspired by the prompt “Alone, Together” and responding to an invitation to collaborate from Artistic Director Risa Brainin and Professor Annie Torsiglieri, 24 distinguished LAUNCH PAD alumni playwrights have written 39 short plays and monologues specifically created to be performed on Zoom. The festival is split into 4 chapters and you are welcome to see them in any combination that works for your schedule as each chapter is self-contained!
Bringing together UC Santa Barbara students, faculty, and professional guest artists, Alone, Together is a perfect celebration of LAUNCH PAD’s 15-year anniversary as it continues its mission to provide students the opportunity to work with living playwrights on new plays. In these extraordinary times, LAUNCH PAD is doing its part to keep theater alive.
