As part of our mission to tell the stories of women, people of color, and those with physical disabilities, Griot Theatre presents a full production of a play audiences first saw as a staged reading earlier in the year. 

 A woman wakes up in a hospital unable to move and with little memory of her past, only to discover that the man who ran her over is her sole visitor. An Accident explores how small decisions can change the course of a life and how the body and mind heal in unexpected ways.

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.
