Cornerstone Theater Company Institute Summer Residency

July 17-August 14, 2011

A Man Comes to Fowler  is produced as part of an annual program, Cornerstone Theater Institute Summer Residency.  Each summer Cornerstone creates a play with a different California community by living within that community for approximately four weeks.  Previous Summer Residencies have taken place in Lost Hills (Kern Co.), Holtville (Imperial County) and Grayson (Stanislaus County), among other places.   This year thirty Cornerstone artists and Institute students from Los Angeles, across the country and from England are temporarily living in Fowler to get to know the community and produce A Man Comes To Fowler.
