Dearest Panndora friends and family ~

We have some big news! As we celebrate 20 years of great plays, PANNDORA PRODUCTIONS will be calling it a wrap after our 2023 season. We are going out on a high, thanks to the many wonderful experiences we have shared with our audience, our playwrights, artists, and supporters. 

We can’t thank our playwrights enough for your confidence and trust in our company. For your colorful characters, intriguing plots, and beautiful new plays that brought life to our Panndora’s Box Festival of New Works for the past 16 years, and the wonderful productions that came out of them. 

We are now preparing for our May production of IN MY BONES by Doc Andersen-Bloomfield. This gorgeous play, which was sidelined by Covid in 2020, will be our last full production at the Garage Theatre in Long Beach, California. We thank the Garage for giving us a home for the past 10 years. It will be a bittersweet parting.

WE AREN'T DONE YET! Come see us at the Garage this May! This play is gorgeous! We want to see your sweet faces and share Covid-safe hugs. 

love from Sonja & Karen 
the Panndora girls

World Premiere

May 12-28, 2023

is the story of two very different women's relationship and their eventual friendship, born out of the need to trust … .. and survive.

Simidele, a West African teenager with an horrendous history, not to mention, attitude, meets/collides with Antonia, a straight-laced professor of Botany with secrets of her own, as they are forced to become room-mates, detainees in the Brideswell Immigration Detention Centre, England. Agassou, a magical panther, who resides in the gigantic Baobab tree over Simi's bed, watches over her, guiding her magical juju gift.

featuring Maiya Carter, Ron Holsey, Tamika Katon-Donegal, and Karen Wray
