Co-EXIST: stories of unlikely connection
2020 Redwood City Play Festival 


September Programming

Fuse Theatre and The Dragon are introducing new and revised online events for the upcoming 2020 Redwood City Play Festival program titled, Co-EXIST: stories of unlikely connection.  Committing to expand online platforms and extending the festival throughout the coming months in an effort to open space for important conversations around racism and to support BIPOC and Queer artists – a new Short Play Clinic, Play Studio events, and Rotating Peer Panel discussions are among the planned events. 

Each month a series of events under the Co-EXIST festival will be offered as “pay what you will” events. Click here to DONATE.
