As California entered a “stay at home” order due to the coronavirus pandemic, UC Santa Barbara’s LAUNCH PAD commissioned 24 distinguished playwrights to pen monologues and short plays inspired by the prompt “Alone, Together” and written to be performed live on Zoom. These 39 extraordinary pieces reflect the moment of lockdown and capture our longing for connection. This is a collection born of a moment, but one that will live on for the ages. Learn More

Now he can’t tell what’s real and what’s not. The New Margo: A young woman’s best friend disappears and is replaced by an entirely different person, but she’s the only one who seems to be able to tell. One Lane Bridge: A teenage driver realizes that his mysterious passenger isn’t who he thought she was—she’s something much, much worse. Each act gives the audience the horrifying feeling that all is not right with the world and that it’s going to be hard to sleep tonight.
