Playwrights Foundation alumni are popping up everywhere! Check out some of what’s happening this month:
Julie Herbert’s play Tree is running now through March 7 at the San Francisco Playhouse – it first debuted at the 2007 Bay Area Playwrights Festival!
“An unexpected knock at the door turns a family upside-down. In this story of beginnings and endings, betrayal and love, three generations twist and grow in astonishing ways. And where their roots meet may surprise you.”
Lauren Yee’sSamsara opens Friday at Victory Gardens Theater – it first debuted at the 2012 Bay Area Playwrights Festival!
“Americans Katie and Craig are having a baby with Suraiya, a surrogate from India. As all three ‘parents’ anxiously await the baby’s due date, Katie and Suraiya are attacked by flights of their imagination.”
Jackie Sibblies Drury’s play We Are Proud to Present… runs this Friday, February 7 – March 7 at Just Theater – it first debuted at the 2011 Bay Area Playwrights Festival!
“We Are Proud to Present…is a hilarious, imaginative and incendiary exploration of race, power and narrative in America. A play within a play, six idealistic young actors – three white and three black – attempt to create a theater piece about a little known genocide in the early 20th century.”
Anne Washburn’s play Mr. Burns runs February 18 – March 15 at the American Conservatory Theater
“In a post-apocalyptic Northern California, a group of strangers bond by recreating the infamous ‘Cape Feare’ episode of The Simpsons…An outrageous and enthusiastically acclaimed new comedy by Anne Washburn, Mr. Burns, a post-electric play is both a marvelous meta-tribute to the iconic first-family of contemporary pop-culture and a celebration of the power of generational storytelling.” -New York Times
