It really was an extraordinary evening of theater ! And to think it was performed by students ! All the more fantastic ! It was a fast-paced, thoughtful, insightful and 'measured' re-enactment of the events up to and including the assassinations and trial.
The acting, requiring a number of actors to assume different roles, was really 'top-notch' and fully evoked each character's nuances and personalities.
And, on a virtual 'shoestring', the production was imaginative and exciting.
Truly a night at the theater NOT to be missed !
Emily Mann, playwright
Elaine Vaan Hogue, director
A brilliant portrayal of the Dan White trial after the 1978 assassinations of Mayor George Moscone and gay city supervisor Harvey Milk of San Francisco. Renowned playwright Mann tells the story in a provocative and multilayered way, posing as many questions as answers about a tragic chapter in the city’s transition to its current political and social climate.
