Impact Theatre does it again with this atypical but well-acted and choreographed play!

“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

About the Ticket Supplier: Impact TheatreSince 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."
