This was well done and pretty evenly acted by all four cast members. There is some humor but a lot of heavy subject matter as well. You felt like you were in their room with them since the space is so small. Be aware that traffic and parking is...continued

Quotes & Highlights

“Monica Byrne … has masterfully drawn a smart, funny, air-tight play and, from the first lines, we feel we are in the safe hands of an exceptionally talented writer.” —NYTheatre.com-
“Clever, provocative… Director Tracy Ward stages it with a cagey, forceful momentum that draws us in and seamlessly incorporates Erika Chong Shuch’s sensuously explosive choreography… plentiful delight in the performances… an engaging ride.” -San Francisco Chronicle
“Thrilling… one of Impact’s most dramatically satisfying productions yet… Bega, Edber, Pollack and especially Stebbins give powerful performances that only grow in intensity.” -Theater Dogs
“Despite its small size, Impact Theatre always stages impressive performances. In the comfort and intimacy of this one-of-a-kind venue and under the creative direction of Tracy Ward, the story sparks to life not only on the stage but also through the entirety of the theater… Bega, Edber, Pollack and Stebbins work together fantastically.” --Daily Cal

Since 1996 Impact Theatre has spoken to a new generation of theatregoers and enthusiasts alike who want to see something fresh and bold on stage. Impact's audience ranges from students to professionals to seniors, all of whom share a taste for exciting, unpretentious theatre that doesn't conform to stale assumptions of what constitutes high culture.

Impact's primary mission is to directly contribute to the future of American theatre through focusing on new plays by emerging playwrights. Impact has produced 17 full-length world premieres, including 12 by local playwrights, as well as dozens of world-premiere ten-minute plays by burgeoning writers nationwide in the Impact Briefs series. Impact also prides itself on its fast-paced, vital, contemporary spins on classic drama.

Impact shows compel, provoke, and inspire, at prices everyone can afford. And nowhere else in the Bay Area can you eat pizza and drink beer while you're watching a play. The Daily Californian included three Impact shows in its list "Top Ten Plays of 2006."
