2018 – 2019 Season

Play on Words kicked off its fifth season in high gear with Nostalgia-rama, a staged reading of ’90s television shows at Redwood City’s Dragon Theatre on August 27, 2018.

Starting in fall 2018, we partnered with the San Jose Museum of Art as part of its 2018-2019 New Terrains: Mobility and Migration cross-disciplinary exhibit that explores how bodies move through spaces–social, political, literal and figurative. Projects address timely topics such as transportation and urban planning, navigation and orientation, public protest, immigration and migration, and mobility in its many forms. With expanding partnerships, New Terrains will embrace multidisciplinary thinkers and cultural producers through a growing range of events. Collaboratively presented through spring of 2019 by organizations of all sizes and types–from museums and artist residencies to community centers and civic think tanks–events and programs will take place across the greater Silicon Valley.

To promote our partnership with the museum, we read a few POW “best-ofs” at the exhibit’s partner kick-off event on November 15.

We are currently reading submissions for our February show:
