The first Los Angeles rehearsal didn't materialize until Sunday, when DeLorenzo gathered the cast around a table in the CTG's cavernous Boyle Heights props warehouse. They'd take on the first week's seven date-specific works, along with three "constants" that are being performed throughout the year -- about 20 script pages in all.
"For those of you keeping score," announced DeLorenzo, two pieces into the first read-through, "we've gone from the Bhagavad-Gita to Agamemnon."

"The grand finale consisted of seven short plays, collectively representing a week, each scene a different tone and mood.  In a play entitled “9-11,” actors on stilts repeatedly chanted “nine” white suits to portray the twin towers while other characters metaphorically made their exit via a pool of water surrounding the outdoor stage. It was these creative elements that encouraged the  audience to think abstractly beyond what was presented only on stage. - "
