Off Plaza


Off Plaza is a play series created by Paris Community Theatre to allow for local theatre artists to experiment with works that deal with contemporary social issues and allows for a more non traditional expression of those social issues. This program occasionally seeks out alternative performance spaces fitting of the shows being produced.
