Title, Premiere and Location

California Plaza Watercourt Stage, Los Angeles, CA



Written By

Written By Shishir Kurup

Produced at California Plaza’s Watercourt Stage in Downtown Los Angeles





In celebration of Cornerstone's 10th Birthday - June 30, 1996 - a play created with Angelinos of all ages born on June 30th. Written by Shishir Kurup and performed outdoors in English, with five other languages, at California Plaza.

Cornerstone invited diverse Angelenos who were born on June 30th (the anniversary of the first day of the company’s operations) to create a play together. Inspired by a Thornton Wilder one-act, the play traced a single family through 90 years and several generations, all at a singly non-stop birthday party.
