A Light in Dark Places: A Collection of Plays for Hope
A Light in Dark Places (ALIDP) is a tax-deductible, non-profit organization that uses the arts to build understanding about the topic of suicide, raise awareness of what signs to look for and offer hope to those struggling with mental health conditions and/or thoughts of suicide.
Suicide affects too many lives, and yet it's often thought of as too dark or taboo to talk about.
The stigma is slowly decreasing, but there's still much work to be done. With our play festival, A Light in Dark Places: A Collection of Plays for Hope, we open up discussion and build
community, and we remind people that no one is alone and its okay not to be okay.
Tickets are $15, and all proceeds are donated to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention - LA (AFSP-LA). Each performance is followed by a reception with complimentary wine & snacks.
Saturday Performances are followed by a Talk Back with directors & a representative from the AFSP-LA.
Sunday, September 8th is our special "Pay-What-You-Can" performance.
