The Monday Night Play Space

Since 2016 Dragon Productions Theatre Company has hosted the Monday Night Play Space. Two Mondays a month (when we can) Dragon will open its doors to local artists to use the space for anything, including staged readings of new plays, local film screenings, poetry slams, stand up comedy, improv demos, books readings, movie nights curated by the Dragon staff, and anything else that the Bay Area artistic community comes up with! You need to workshop in front of an audience? This is your opportunity! Apply for a performance slot

We’ll be accepting cash donations from patrons at the door in lieu of a fixed ticket price. We'll have concessions available so it will be a fun night at the theatre and a great way to meet local artists, share in the creative process, mingle with the community, and support local theatre. 


For Audiences: 

All performances start at 7:30p and the doors open at 7p at the Dragon Theatre in downtown Redwood City. Cash only at the door. Suggested minimum donation of $5 - $10. Concessions will be available for purchase to enjoy during the show.



Monday, September 25: a staged reading of The Arrangement, a new play from Jeffrey Lo

A Filipino-American chef is convinced by his family to help a Filipino girl to immigrate to America by marrying her. But in order to get the process started the two must prove to the immigration services that they are - in fact - in love. As they work together to build her life in America and create their love story out of nowhere, the lines of love and friendship, truth and story begin to blur, putting their plans in jeopardy.

Monday, October 9: Play On Words: Leading Women

Play On Words, San Jose's premiere literary performance series, is proud to present Leading Women, a reading of work by Bay Area women writers who challenge--and occasionally mock--gender norms.

Monday, October 30: a staged reading of Raptured by Neva Hutchinson

Raptured poster

Raptured by Neva Hutchinson is based on the disappearance of evangelist Aimee Semple McPherson in 1926.  Was she kidnapped for 6 weeks, as she claimed?  Or did she run off with her married lover, Kenneth Orniston, to a California bungalow?


Raptured seeks to answer these questions, while exploring the life of the sacred and profane. A noted celebrity, Aimee formed the Four-Square Temple Church that is still in existence today in Los Angeles. Her Sunday sermons reached thousands of people, in person and on the radio.


Come experience the life and times of this "entertainment evangelist".
