Son of Semele Ensemble is a Los Angeles-based ensemble theatre company comprised of 25+ actors, directors, designers, dramaturgs and producers. To date we have produced over 30 productions in Los Angeles, most of which have been presented in our 36-seat flexible black-box space in Silver Lake. As an ensemble of artists, we integrate complex design and performance, producing theatre that embraces the friction between emotion and intellect.
1) We produce scripts of 80 minutes or longer.
2) As an ensemble company, we prefer plays that use more than 3 actors and which can be primarily cast by company members. (Note: if your cast requires specific ethnicities, review our company member profiles.)
3) We like “experimental” & “expressionistic” plays. We are open to realistic texts if they provide room for theatrical interpretation. Also, our intimate space and small budgets are well suited to non-realistic sets.
4) We prefer plays with some intellectual “meat” — which challenge and excite the mind.
