Interact Theatre Company celebrates 18 years of presenting staged readings at UCLA Law School

COMING this FALL! Save the Date!

Euripides’ HIPPOLYTUS, directed by Oliver Muirhead, 10/16/17

Racine’s PHAEDRA, directed by Dennis Gersten, 10/23/17

Sponsored by UCLA Law School, Interact Theatre Company’s UCLA Law School Staged Readings Series was created in 1999 by our first Board President, UCLA Law Professor Daniel Lowenstein. The series consists of one staged play reading each semester (occasionally two) pertaining to themes related to justice, government, and public responsibility. Audiences consist of ULCA students, faculty, staff, and alumni of the Law School and other departments. Admission is free. The purpose of the readings is to stimulate discussion of the ethical and societal issues raised in these excellent plays, to help stimulate interdisciplinary consideration of law and the humanities, and to entertain.

Readings in the series to date have been:
