IN RESPONSE: PART III was a massive hit!

The TST theatrical experience is always moving; with skilled, bold yet ethereal artists, as a general rule. This production of ‘In Response Part III,’ on June Thirteenth, was no exception, and perhaps even moves the bar a little bit, if that were possible.


Spread the word to your friends across the country — it’s easy now to see and support them online, without city and state boundaries. (The heart has no boundaries.) After 28 years, they’ve earned it.

Very creative. I don't live in LA anymore, so glad I was able to see a TST show again. Came to support Erin and came away a fan of all the others. Glad I came! It was a wonderful performance.


I'd love to see it again. It's storytelling!! Riveting performances!


I loved the intersectionality.

The In Response series was developed by TST in 2015 as our theatre's response to current events affecting our community. It does not shy away from controversy in its short plays and monologues as it approaches racism and its consequences by connecting historical context with the present moment. Audiences will leave reflecting on the chain of systemic racism in the United States and the pitfalls and possibilities of our current time in history.
