The Radar L.A. International Festival of Contemporary Theater kicks off with Luis Alfaro’s St. Jude on Friday, Sept. 20 at 8 p.m. at the Kirk Douglas Theatre. The nostalgic and emotionally charged narrative, under the direction of Robert Egan, recounts the pivotal stages of Alfaro’s life in the Central Valley including family holidays to picking grapes to running away from home at 16 years old. The onslaught of his father’s sickness conjures up these memories.
Radar L.A. offers a 5-Event Flex Pass, that gives the patron the ability to select five individual events any time after single tickets go on sale. Passes can be used for five admissions to any festival performance, with the exception of Prometheus at the Getty Villa and Shun-Kin at UCLA.
