Compassion Plays Special Presentation Series - Horizon Line by Peter Howard

  • Western Justice Center 55 South Grand Avenue Pasadena, CA, 91105 United States (map)

Join us for a viewing and discussion of "Horizon Line" a Compassion Plays program by Peter Howard and performed by Kevin Blake. "Horizon Line" explores bias-motivated behavior through the eyes of Danny Curtis - a young white man on a path of escalating destruction - and the people in his life who influence his choices, for better and for worse.

The Compassion Plays program is ideal for professional development trainings for educators, law professors and more. These free previews are offered for our guests to experience the program first-hand to decide if it’s the right fit for their school or organization.

The series will be held on three consecutive nights August 7th-9th at 7-9 pm. Monday will feature "Horizon Line" followed by "Wheels" on Tuesday, and "Kick" on Wednesday.

The Compassion Plays program offers three one-person plays, each with a professionally facilitated pre and post show discussion.  The program utilizes live theater to develop understanding for experiences or identities substantially different from our own.

*Compassion Plays is an ENCOMPASS program of the Western Justice Center. All actors are exclusively contracted through Actors Equity Association, the union of professional stage performers.
