THE TRIP was founded in 2012 by Joshua Brody and Tom Dugdale in San Diego to create experimental, ensemble-driven performances that celebrate the liveness and mechanics of theater itself. We have worked site-specifically on many occasions, in locations ranging from a parking garage (Fool for Love) to a former military barracks (THE TRIP’s Macbeth, All The Rooms of the House) to one of San Diego’s hottest tattoo shops (Three Plays in a Tattoo Shop), where an audience member was (willingly!) tattooed as part of the performance. La Jolla Playhouse supported two major site-specific works by the company—a backyard barbecue staging of Our Town and Chekhov's Three Sisters on a tennis court. These were cornerstone productions of La Jolla Playhouse's Without Walls Festival. The Trip's Orpheus & Eurydice, a multi-platform adaptation of the myth through online content, live performance, and film, was nominated for Best New Play by the San Diego Critics Circle. In 2018, THE TRIP created This might be the end at Theaterlab, who will host the company again this summer for the development of their latest project, P A R A D I S E.
