Our newest project whithin Public Works Improvisational Theatre is called "Voice In The Well", a series of monthly literary salon-style readings produced by Eric Vollmer.

About VITW

We are a group of writers, poets, and performers who believe in the transformative power of art.

Our Performing Arts Ensemble seeks to breathe new life into classic works of prose, poetry and playwriting, while also encouraging new creative expression within the greater community of California.

Drawing our inspiration from pioneering Arts and Cultural Initiatives launched in Los Angeles, we are reaching out to the greater public to share the legacy of literary imagination and to encourage coming generations to find their own creative voices.

Recent shows include:

  • Literary Cabaret Salute to Women's History Month
  • Beyond Darwin: You Say You Want An Evolution
  • Good Thinkin' Lincoln
  • A Reading of Dylan Thomas' Classic Under Milkwood
