This grant to L.A. Theatre Works (LATW) provides support to its continuing project to record and distribute science plays. Over the next two years, L.A. Theatre Works will record four more science plays, including two new plays commissioned through the Foundation's Theater program. In addition to garnering significant new audiences for each play, recordings become part of LATW's permanent Audio Theater Collection made available to individuals and libraries through an online catalogue and retail partner sites, including iTunes, Audible.com, Barnesandnoble.com, and Overdrive.net. Additionally, two of the four plays will be distributed free of charge to 3,000 schools in over 600 cities in all 50 states, with accompanying curricular material. While only a few thousand people can see science-themed plays in their original, limited theatrical run, LATW guarantees that these plays will be heard by hundreds of thousands of people over many years and belong to the permanent collections of schools, libraries, and retail partners.
