La Jolla Playhouse presents the the West Coast premiere of "Queens," written by 2018 Pulitzer Prize winner Martyna Majok and directed by Carey Perloff.

The play follows a story of a young immigrant who arrives at a tenement in Queens, New York. She's met by her new landlord, who stood on the same doorstep 16 years earlier. As they get to know each other, the old brownstone reverberates with the voices of the fierce and proud women who preceded them. This exquisite play explores into a moving study of things we run from and toward, and the people who shepherd us along the way.

The show runs July 3 through 29, 2018. For tickets and additional details call (858) 550-1010.
