Unheard LA – live in Hollywood (ep.3)

Saturday, May 13, 2017, 5:30pm - 7:00pm
The Assistance League of Los Angeles Playhouse 1367 North St. Andrews Place Hollywood, CA 90028 Map and directions

The Assistance League of Los Angeles Playhouse is tucked away in a nondescript building on a nondescript corner in Hollywood. Inside is an historic theater that will house KPCC In Person’s third “Unheard LA,” an electric show featuring the Young Storytellers and community storytellers from across Southern California. Lose yourself in personal pieces, which range from a 14-year-old’s unyielding stance on screen time to a desperate search for Zumba in K-Town and the day TSA changed one person’s understanding of identity.

Join us as actor, writer and Watts Village Theater Company artistic director Bruce A. Lemon Jr. guest hosts the show. Then stick around afterward for a mixer with the performers and fellow attendees.

As part of this series, we’ll be hearing true stories from people of different walks of life and diverse experiences. While all of our programming is intended to be inclusive and for a broad audience, it’s possible certain themes or language may not be deemed appropriate for all ages. If this were a movie, we’d probably rate it PG. If you’d like more information or have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us directly at Thanks!


KPCC In Person series "Unheard LA — the stories of where you live” is funded in part by a grant from The California Wellness Foundation.
