About Productions

For 25 years, About...Productions critically acclaimed original theaterworks and educational programs have been seen extensively in the greater Los Angeles area, throughout the nation, in Canada, and on national television. We believe in the power of theater to enlighten audiences, celebrate the lives of seniors, and transform greatest-risk youth.



In honor and celebration of About…Productions’ 25th Anniversary,
we’re mining our rich repertoire of original theaterworks,
presenting them in staged readings and full productions,
and preparing them for publication.

Up first – Properties of Silence

Poetry, science, and history spiral out of control as a contemporary Phoenix realtor, her pool contractor husband, and the famed 17th C. poet Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz meet in a multi-layered dreamscape. Sor Juana, considered the first great Latin American poet, is joined by her confessor who hopes to silence her pen and scientific inquiries. Reality bends as they all confront the nature of their identities and seek a new beginning.

The Chicano Legacy Project empowers all youth and
enlightens audiences by drawing on the rich and inspiring history of the Chicano movement
of the 1960s and 70s, a period of dramatic civil rights activity that continues to affect all Americans.
It is built around our Evangeline production and its related educational programs,
and the Young Theaterworks’ Through the Ages program.

About Productions’ Young Theaterworks programs offer innovative programming that
introduces youth to the importance of writing and the power of communication
through artistic expression, facilitated dialogue and live performance.
