The La Jolla Playhouse is offering experimental, immersive and multimedia theater pieces during its second "Without Walls" festival this weekend.

More than 20 separate pieces will be presented, not on a stage, but in unexpected places, allowing the audience to interact with players in new ways.

For instance, in "The Car Plays: Interchange", an audience of two watches the action unfold in the front seat, while they sit in the back. THE TRIP theater company is presenting Anton Chekhov's play "Three Sisters" on a tennis court. The Jean Isaacs San Diego Dance Theater is producing "Dances With Walls," featuring dancers moving against walls.

The last "Without Walls" festival was held in 2013.

Festival producer Marike Fitzgerald from La Jolla Playhouse, and Joshua Brody from THE TRIP will talk about what's in store for adventurous and first time theater goers alike Tuesday on Midday Edition.
