Experience a play reading in the very place it is set: WATTS.

The Story: 
Over 150 years, four families with ancestry in different parts of the world make their home on one particular plot of Southern California land now known as Watts. A host of old curses and blessings, traditions and recipes, loves and betrayals travel down family lines from the 19th to the 21st century, forcing each successive generation to ask in times of hardship, “Should I stay or should I go?” Los Angeles native Evangeline Ordaz crafts a rich and complex web of diverse characters who through triumph and despair discover how deeply they are rooted in the dreams of their ancestors and the land on which they stand.

The California Plays Project
Fascinated by the landscape, people and politics of our home state, Center Theatre Group recently commissioned four Los Angeles playwrights to write four plays on California themes.  To aid in each play’s development, CTG is partnering with four Los Angeles cultural institutions to bring these California stories to different corners of our city—and to make a wide range of Los Angeles audiences such as yourself a part of the creative process.

Watts Our Town Project

The Watts Labor Community Action Committee (WLCAC) is engaged in creating a new design to improve the area near the 103rd Street train station called Watts Station, pictured below.
Watts Station (103rd Street and Graham, Los Angeles, circa 1920)
Watts Station (103rd Street and Graham, Los Angeles, circa 1980)
The design will include an artistic pathway between 103rd Street and the Watts Towers Art Center Campus, as well as a Visitors Center to celebrate the cultural history of the Watts Community.

Multiple meetings with various stakeholders have been held, and surveys collected to capture community input. We are now in the process of refining final designs and results for release, expected in summer of 2014.
This project is supported in part by an award from
the National Endowment for the Arts.

If you have questions about the project, or would like more information,
