The show is called “5711 Avalon,” named after the enclosed parking lot where it takes place. The play depicts a day in the life of a test site in which workers and those who arrive to be tested are characters in a larger narrative that audience members are invited to enjoy from the safety of their cars. Although LaBeouf does not appear in the production, he’s heavily involved through his theater company, Slauson Rec.
“This play draws on interviews conducted by Slauson Rec Theater Company with frontline workers, CORE volunteers, company members' journals and published news reports from April through June 2020,” a description on the Slauson Rec Theater Company website reads.
