And click on the button here to visit The Ajax Project site:

The Ajax Project is the first project in a collaboration between our theatre and the University of Southern California Classics and Theatre Departments. It is part of ongoing programming that has been created during the shut down of the COVID-19 pandemic in service to our veteran artists and our community.

This is the first project of this series that we hope to gain enough support to continue. The viewing of the program and the online project will be free and hosted below on our website. With your help we can continue the work and hope to achieve a wider reach to people who are isolated at this time and beyond. 


Please donate in support, if you can.  Thank you.

Ongoing Programs

Short plays, songs, comedy, spoken word and more!

Check out the fun we've been having at our weekly company Happy Hours!

If you are in the position to donate, please consider giving to EST/LA today. Your generous gift will help offset the losses of revenue caused by delayed productions and programming sponsorships during this time.

Please take care of yourselves, stay well, and we’ll see you soon at the theatre!
