Without Walls (WoW) is La Jolla Playhouse’s signature site-based
theatre program. Since 2010, the Playhouse has been commissioning and
presenting a series of site-specific productions at locations throughout
the San Diego community. Underscoring the theatre’s mission of providing
“unfettered creative opportunities for the leading artists of today
and tomorrow,” coupled with the idea that the Playhouse is defined
by the work it creates – not the space in which it is performed – WoW is
designed to offer theatrical experiences that venture beyond the physical
confines of the Playhouse’s facilities. Building on the excitement and
success of its past WoW productions – Susurrus, The Car Plays:
San Diego, Sam Bendrix at the Bon Soir, Accomplice: San Diego,
El Henry and The Grift at the Lafayette Hotel, the Playhouse
will be hosting its third WoW Festival in October 2017, featuring
several site-based pieces by artists and companies from around the world.
