Species Native to California


IAMA Theatre Company Presents THE WORLD PREMIERE OF

May 11- June 11 Atwater Stage Theater

Everyone's a part of the family - until they're not.
Land, labor, and loss collide in this contemporary re-imagining of The Cherry Orchard. For a decade, two families -- one white and progressive, one undocumented--  have lived together on a Northern California wine country estate in something like harmony.  But political changes and financial mishaps leave them both suddenly facing uncertain futures.  As everyone clamors to save the estate, a vengeful ghost haunts the fruitless vineyard intent on breaking the balance.  Mexican folklore meets Mendocino County (in English y Español).

Species Native to California runs May 13 through June 11, with performances on Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 7 p.m. (dark Sunday, May 28). Two preview performances take place on Thursday, May 11 and Friday, May 12, both at 8 p.m. All tickets are $30.
Atwater Village Theatre is located at 3269 Casitas Ave in Los Angeles, CA 90039.
On- site parking is free. For reservations and information, call
