Begin Again. Together.
What is the difference between TV and theatre? The lines have been blurred for the last year. When the pandemic hit, theatres were the first businesses to close and we are the last to re-open. In 2020, MOXIE led San Diego as one of the first companies to begin reaching audiences digitally. We’ve been grateful for those who ventured into the virtual world with us. But the return to live theatre is about more than returning to a physical space. It’s about coming together for a new beginning in which we can become our best selves through shared empathy, community and story. Welcome back to the theatre. Let’s begin again. Together.

Elsa is a primatologist with a secret that’s easier to bear when she’s at work with Wookie, the orangutan she’s training to speak. Her worlds will collide when A.J., her nephew who is living with autism, starts hanging around at her work. Sapience is a ground-breaking and imaginative new play about how we communicate and seek to be understood.

The Mineola Twins

One dirty sock might end it all. Myrna and Myra are ALMOST identical twins with very different world views. When one sock crosses the threshold of their separate lives, a battle ensues that races through the Eisenhower, Nixon and Reagan/Bush years in this delicious comedy that dives into the brasiers of the ultra-conservative and ultra-liberal to find… boobs on both sides.
