UPDATE JANUARY 4, 2021
The safety of our production members and our guests in our intimate 45-seat theatre are our top priority. With that in mind and with the increasing Covid-19 numbers in Los Angeles we will have to postpone the January performance dates we had planned for @Playaz. We will continue to monitor the Covid-19 situation and let you know when we might be able to add more performance dates.
We wish everyone good health and safety in the coming year.

Moving Arts Presents the World Premiere of
By Dana Schwartz
Directed by Darin Anthony
Featuring Justin Huen, Brandon Bales, Dustin Green, Amy Dellagiarino
Produced by Cece Tio
While trying to balance respectful mid-life careers with a booming online gaming presence and a whole lot of viewers looking for guidance as they re-enter the world, Alan and Charlie find that real time challenges can be (almost) as exciting as a live gaming tournament, provided you surround yourself with a good team. The play explores modern relationships and the challenges that come with living our lives online. Combining real-life drama onstage with video game play on screen, @Playaz is a modern, immersive comedy with teeth.
