Acclaimed solo performer Mark Kenward conjures up the sights, sounds, stories and even the tastes of Nantucket via his new dramedy set on that iconic island, which boasts a New England-style picnic dinner available for purchase from the East Bay's artisan takeout restaurant Grégoire. Kenward, who's created seven well-received solo shows, sails far back into his childhood to explore the contrasts between the bright summers and harsh winters of the vacation paradise where he grew up, including delving into a shocking and violent act committed by his mother. Both haunting and hilarious, Nantucket also features guest artists with music, video and fine-art photography inspired by the island. Learn More

Jeff has an incredible memory and talent for making you feel as you lived through his stories, with him! He connects with the audience and is a wonderful story teller and reminder of why travel is so critical to our well being and to our personal development. A MUST SEE! (at least once...he show is different every time!)
“Peculiar travel suggestions,” Kurt Vonnegut wrote in_ Cats Cradle_, “are dancing lessons from God.” Indeed, it’s those unpredictable discoveries and encounters that make world travel so illuminating. Oakland-based Jeff Greenwald — best known for his best-selling books, including _Shopping for Buddhas, The Size of the World and now Snake Lake_ — brings the hand of destiny to this work: an improvised monologue inspired by the joys of wanderlust. Audience members step onstage, and spin a huge, colorful Wheel of Fortune. ’Round and ’round it spins, and where it stops, the story begins….
