Playwrights Foundation- Erin Bregman’s BID TO SAVE THE WORLD & Anthony Clarvoe’s EARLY ROMANTICS & THE MUMMY AND THE REVOLUTIONARY by Yussef el Guindi

Playwrights Foundation- Erin Bregman’s BID TO SAVE THE WORLD & Anthony Clarvoe’s EARLY ROMANTICS & THE MUMMY AND THE REVOLUTIONARY by Yussef el Guindi

Erin Bregman’s BID TO SAVE THE WORLD
Directed by Susannah Martin

BID TO SAVE THE WORLD is a dystopian epic, where several stories intermingle in a world without death.

Death sits on the side, peeling oranges relegated to the dustbin of history, while inquisitive young minds search for a way to grapple with their infinite reality.

While you watch the normality of their immortality, ask yourself “What is living without death?”

Erin Bregman has been a finalist for the Princess Grace Award, the Jerome Fellowship, Aurora’s Global Age Project, and the Bay Area Playwrights Festival. Erin has worked with Just Theatre, The Lark, the Playwrights Foundation, FuryFactory, Actors Theatre of Santa Cruz, UCSB New Plays Festival, and PlayGround. During the day she works as a teaching artist for the San Francisco Opera, and runs Little Opera, an all-kids opera company.

Anthony Clarvoe’s EARLY ROMANTICS

Anthony Clarvoe is a veteran playwright and Bay Area native who recently, very happily, returned home to San Francisco. His plays include the award winning PICK UP AXE, THE LIVING, THE BROTHERS KARAMAZOV, and THE ART OF SACRIFICE. While living and working in the Bay Area he received the Will Glickman, Bay Area Drama Critics’ Circle and Dramalogue Awards.

EARLY ROMANTICS is inspired by the passionate lives of the tightly-knit community of men and women sometimes referred to as the Transcendental Idealists, sometimes as the Early Romantics.

Rebellious children of establishment parents, deeply thoughtful revolutionaries, pioneers in unconventional love, they were notorious as much for their ideas as their affairs. Their tangled artistic and emotional lives struck a strong chord with me, from my days on the periphery of the entourages of two very different music scenes, each of which spawned a band whose relics are now respectably on display in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
