About the Play

EST/LA will be producing the world premiere of The Princes of Kings Road by Tom Lazarus as a site-specific production at the Neutra Institute Museum & Gallery in Silver Lake.

This enlightening, touching and funny three-character play takes place twenty-three years after world famous architects Richard Neutra and Rudolph Schindler’s business partner relationship and friendship ended.

They meet in the unlikeliest of places—as patients in a shared hospital room at Cedars of Lebanon, where stuck in close quarters, they are forced to hash out their differences, their legacies and their friendship.

Based on an actual incident, the play was developed in EST/LA’s Playwright’s Unit and performed in this year’s EST/LA’s Winterfest reading series where Dion Neutra, Richard Neutra’s son, saw the play and proposed that it be produced as a full production at the Neutra Institute Museum and Gallery.
