The Year To Come @ La Jolla Playhouse

World Premiere

Every New Year’s Eve a family gathers in their Florida backyard to ring in the coming year. In between dips in the pool, politically incorrect banter and a highly-anticipated onion dip, their relationships grow and fracture in moments that become family legend. Unfolding backwards in time, The Year to Come is a hilarious and touching world premiere that shows how the promise of our future is shaped by the lens of our past.

Rising playwright Lindsey Ferrentino introduces us to a distinctly American family whose evolution mirrors the turbulence of the 21st century. Directed by Anne Kauffman.

What A Terrible Realization: Stories For When It All Falls Apart

Drink in the dark as storytellers Jenna and Emma bring you the best of their best tales from the past three years. Some'll be true. Some'll be false. But they'll all be the best.

/// Your favorite storytelling duo, Jenna & Emma, brings you their best material from the past three years of raconteuring in dark bars. You might've seen them at their very first show in the loud back room at Swift, or at several since then at such venues as KGB Bar & Cornelia Street Cafe. In their Caveat *debut* they’ll regale you with fine-tuned tales of hot monks, lost cats, man-boys, stirrup pants, award-winning waitresses, superheroes, the dawns and dooms of love affairs, and the tortures of time in its passing. A highbrow night of literary fun. Drink in the dark as Jenna and Emma read to you. Like being a kid again. But with more booze.
