Señor Plummer's Final Fiesta takes place in Plummer Park in West Hollywood and the audience not only experiences a number of stories from Eugene Plummer's past and the history of Los Angeles, but are also able to pick and choose which paths and characters they follow.

The adventures you encounter are not always friendly or logical, but always exist in the vibrant, mysterious shifting ground at the very heart of Eugene Plummer, the original resident of West Hollywood. I would say the adventure began for me from the minute I parked and started looking for the place, walking through dimly lit Plummer Park set the right atmosphere. I already started feeling like I was entering a different world, miles and decades ago from the vibrant and noisy WeHo.
