La Jolla Playhouse's WithOutWalls 2015 Festival

Without Walls (WoW) is La Jolla Playhouse's acclaimed site-specific theatre program designed to break barriers by moving beyond the boundaries of a traditional four-walled theatre space. Over the past five years, the Playhouse has commissioned and/or presented works by local, national and international theatre artists in locations throughout the San Diego community. This year's festival will be taking place October 9 - 11 at various locations around or near Jacobs Theatre District on the UC San Diego campus, home of La Jolla Playhouse and the Department of Theatre and Dance.
Previous WoW productions include Susurrus at the San Diego Botanical Garden in Encinitas; The Car Plays: San Diego in the Playhouse parking lot; Sam Bendrix at the Bon Soir at Martini's Above Fourth in Hillcrest; Accomplice: San Diego in Little Italy, as well as the four-day Without Walls Festival in October 2013 that garnered major national attention and critical acclaim. 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.

Current UC San Diego students and alumni feature prominently as part of the 2015 WithOutWalls Festival at La Jolla Playhouse. This year's projects featuring current UC San Diego students include:
