March 2020. 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.

The House that Jack Built (2m., 3w.) is about a clash of old traditions and new love and the mysterious heartbreak that comes with getting what you think you want.
