Noted pianist Gwendolyn Mok and clarinetist Larry London are joined by three members of the San Francisco Symphony for this exciting program from Berkeley Chamber Performances. This concert include brilliant works by Conradin Kreutzer and Ingolf Dahl, and culminates with Schubert's beloved Trout Quintet. A reception follows the evening's performance, allowing artists and audience to mingle and chat. The Berkeley City Club is a gorgeous location for chamber music with its blend of Romanesque and Moorish architectural styles from Julia Morgan, the same architect that designed the famous Hearst Castle on California's Central Coast.

Quotes & Highlights
- "The story is absolutely stunning, and even if you've seen the show before, the TheatreFirst production offers a whole new take. Mamet has created a remarkable and occasionally frustrating play, in which a key role of the two actors is to make you draw the conclusions." --San Jose Mercury News
Oleanna, a powerful two-character drama by David Mamet, explores the destructiveness of miscommunication and excessive political correctness. It is a play about academic politics, student/teacher relationships, and ultimately about power, in America; who has it, how did they get it and how does having it affect them as individuals. Art for the 99%.
Come help TheatreFIRST celebrate the 20th anniversary of this seminal work. Post-show discussions are currently scheduled for Sunday, April 22nd and Sunday, April 29th. They are sure to be almost as interesting as the play itself. Lauded as one of the finest playwrights of his generation, Mr. Mamet is best known for his plays Speed the Plow, American Buffalo and Glengarry Glenn Ross, for which he won the Pulitzer Prize for playwriting, and his screenplays for Wag The Dog, The Untouchables and The Edge.
This play is directed by TheatreFIRST Artistic Director Michael Storm.
* This is a non-smoking production. It is suitable for ages 15 and up.
