Top Bay Area playwrights Lauren Gunderson, Cleavon Smith, and Jonathan Spector team up to create an original audio drama, The Flats, for Aurora Theatre Company. Aurora Artistic Director Josh Costello directs actors Lauren English, Anthony Fusco, Khary L. Moye, and Rebecca Schweitzer in this new story that speaks directly to our present moment in all its complexity.

The residents of a Berkeley triplex are thrown together by a shelter-in-place order due to a mysterious threat. Brooke is a Black man navigating the white world of supposedly liberal Berkeley. Harmony is a white suburban mom away from her kids for the first time in years. Leonard is an aging hippie with a theory that might change everything. When the old system is thrown into chaos, how do we build a new world together?

The Flats contains adult language and concepts. It is not intended for children.

The development and workshopping of The Flats was made possible in part by support from The Tournesol Foundation.
