Love On San Pedro by Cornerstone Theatre

Header_LOSP-Creative-Seeds

“Darkness got a way a makin it feel like time ain’t movin.”

Time moves differently in Skid Row, Los Angeles, where artists rub shoulders with lawyers, pastors, social workers and b-ball players. From the benches of San Julian Park to the walls of an intimate apartment and a raucous karaoke hall, Love On San Pedro, Cornerstone’s fourth play in The Hunger Cycle, weaves an unlikely love story. Shunned by her community, Marjorie’s weariness drags time to a near standstill. But when she’s wooed by a man whose hope and hoop-shots know no bounds, her world speeds up fast. Meet Skid Row’s intricate and vibrant community, a mere one square mile of downtown streets where the moon shines brightest in the darkest corners.

This project is commissioned and developed in partnership with Full Stage USA at New Dramatists, a program made possible by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
