Compassion Plays Production of Horizon Line

Compassion Plays Production of Horizon Line

Take advantage of a great upcoming opportunity to see a Compassion Plays performance of Horizon Line by Peter Howard from 6-8pm on Thursday, December 11. There will be a reception starting at 6pm, with the play beginning at 6:30pm.

What are the seeds of prejudice? 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.

Horizon Line tells a story of conflicting impulses and loyalties in the life of an impressionable young man. Danny loves art and yearns to create a happy picture of himself and his world. But his desire to fit in - to be seen, to be heard - lead him toward acts that destroy property, frighten people and place his own future in jeopardy.

Learn more about the Compassion Plays program.

To RSVP or for more information, email emily@westernjustice.org or call (626) 584-7494.

Compassion Plays Production of Wheels

Take advantage of a great upcoming opportunity to see a Compassion Plays performance of Wheels by Peter Howard from 6-8pm on Wednesday, November 19. There will be a reception starting at 6pm, with the play beginning at 6:30pm.

Wheels explores immigration, xenophobia and the privileges and responsibilities of citizenship through the eyes of Oscar, a 15 and 1/2 year old Salvadoran-American youth and the people he encounters on his first journey through the maze of the DMV.

Wheels tells the story of Oscar's first steps toward independence, as he steps off the bus and into the Department of Motor Vehicles. In pursuit of his learner's permit and ultimately his driver's license, Oscar encounters a range of perspectives on freedom, mobility, and the dreams and realities associated with U.S. citizenship.
