At CAP UCLA, our first priority is the health, safety and well-being of our community of artists, staff, production team and supporters. It is in this context and in response to the COVID-19 health crisis that we have suspended all performances for the remainder of the 2019-20 Season.

We have been in close communication with the artists and their management to begin the complex task of rescheduling their performances into the 2020-21 CAP UCLA Season beginning in September.

Ticket holders will automatically receive a refund for the full amount of the purchase. The business of ticket refunds is a workload of some magnitude. We appreciate your patience as we work through this process.

To learn more about UCLA’s ongoing response to this crisis, please visit UCLA’s dedicated COVID-19 website as well as Bruins Safe Online.

Be safe, be healthy, be strong.

“Great journalism, and even better theatre.” — The Montreal Gazette

Seeds is a dramatic re-enactment of the seven-year legal battle between Saskatchewan farmer Percy Schmeiser and one of the world’s biggest biotech corporations, Monsanto Inc. While debates about GMOs are multiplying everywhere, life- changing experiments are being conducted in the food we eat. This documentary theater play leads us through a suspenseful labyrinth of legal conflicts around patent rights, scientific show-downs about genetically modified food and property clashes between farmers and the biotechnology industry. Based on court trial transcripts and interviews with Percy Schmeiser, Monsanto representatives, farmers, academics, lawyers and scientists from all across Canada, it attempts to answer the question of  “Who owns Life?”

Funds for the CAP UCLA presentation provided by the Sally & William A. Rutter Endowment for the Performing Arts and the Skoll Center for Social Impact Entertainment at the UCLA School of Theater, Film and Television.
