Discover LFL's expansive outreach program that includes residencies, after-school programs, summer camps, touring productions and projects with students from kindergarten to college, and adults, including our award-winning production of CHOICES: an interactive play on cyberbullying and suicide.
Explore the history behind our Fall production of UnCaged/Desenjualadas. This collaboration began in 2004 with LFL artists traveling to Guatemala to teach Guatemalan women theatre activities LFL uses to create their original theatre pieces. Together they then used these activities to explore personal stories of gender-based inequities in power in their communities' leadership. As the Guatemalan participants discovered they had a valuable tool of transformation, they pushed to expand the work to address broader social justice issues as well.
