A Light in Dark Places 2018

Stella Adler Lab Theatre Co. presents…
A Light in Dark Places

A Light in Dark Places is a play festival made up of five short plays that touch on the topic of suicide and is followed by a reception each night with a volunteer from the AFSP present.

Our goal is to bring understanding and to give hope to those who have been touched by suicide by creating a night that opens up discussion, provides resources and builds community.

Tickets are donation based and all proceeds are donated to the AFSP-LA. THANK YOU to Stella Adler Academy of Acting & Theatre – Los Angeles for giving ALIDP a home.

Make sure to join us after the show each night for our reception and for our special Q&A Saturdays!
