An Accident

Staged Readings:
As part of our mission to tell the stories of women, people of color, and those with physical disabilities, Griot Theatre presents staged readings of  An Accident  - based on real events in the life of playwright Lydia Stryk.

A woman is run over and critically injured: the driver appears at her bedside. There are encounters in life that take you somewhere you've never been and never meant to go.

Please stay afterward for a brief talkback after each performance. Audience feedback is greatly appreciated.

*Starring Artistic Director, Malik B. El-Amin, as Anton

What is Griot Theatre?

Malik B. El-Amin
Artistic Director & Co-founder

Griot Theatre is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization serving Greater Los Angeles County.  

Everyone has a story to tell. That's what we do in theatre. Yet women, artists of color, and artists with physical disabilities have been left out of the conversation - their voices unheard - in traditional theatre.

We believe that theatre performs two functions: it reminds us who we've been and it teaches us who we have the potential to become. When our stories lack diversity, our past remains deficient and our future less bright. Griot Theatre exists to give voice to these untold stories, by creating a forum for artists from underrepresented groups to interpret theatre in new ways.
