BRINGING THE ARTS TO THE AUDIENCE (BATA) is LHT’s most popular staged reading series which features works by both new and established African American and multicultural playwrights.


The readings have been performed at various partner venues in San Francisco, including our ongoing flagship partner, the Museum of the African Diaspora (MoAD), the African American Art and Culture Complex (AAACC), I.T. Bookman Community Center, and the San Francisco Main Public Library.

...We'll definitely go back...
