Now Playing:


By Taylor Mac

Directed by Frank Green

The classic dysfunctional family drama has just crashed through into a wholly original place. Meet Paige, a wife and mother liberated from an oppressive and abusive marriage; Max, her newly out transgender son; and Isaac, Max's PTSD-addled older brother, who discovers a brand new war zone when he comes home from Afghanistan. Hir's crusade to shake up the patriarchy is disarmingly funny, absurd and surprising as it looks at an American family forced to build a new world out of the pieces of the old.
July 22-August 14, 2016. Fri-Sat 7:30pm; Sun 2pm. Tickets $22 (Students with ID: $15).

Help the Vortex be a Good Neighbor

Posted: June 1, 2016.
We're so happy in our new building on Carlisle, and we want to keep our Bel-Air neighbors happy, too. Please avoid parking on Hermosa—the extra cars mean home owners can't park. Parking is available at the Archery Shop (north of the theatre), at businesses south of Joy Garden, and across Carlisle at the office buildings directly west. Thank you very much!
