Take a trip back to 1970s Northern California, when three aging siblings are hit with a comic existential crisis when an unexpected guest comes bearing mystical predictions in The Hummingbird's Tour. In this "end of life" comedy, our siblings explore life, more life and life after life with humorous results. This comedy was developed in front of an exclusive audience in a private barn, and now makes its premiere under the direction of John Augustine. All proceeds will support the Haitian microfinance institution Fonkoze. Learn More

Saw "Assistance" Friday nite at the Wilma Theatre. It's billed as "off Broadway," but it needs a lot more work to get to Broadway. It's worth seeing for the delightful young actors and for the look at the 20-somethings' culture. But
it needs a more defined narrative arc, and a reason to care about the central characters. Still, a fun evening !!
An Off-Broadway hit comedy in 2012, Assistance is the second offering in playwright Leslye Headland’s “Seven Deadly Sins” series – this time treating greed – and comes on the heels of Bachelorette, another hit and also a feature film release. The Wilma is thrilled to announce the return of director David Kennedy, who previously directed the Wilma’s 2011 success The Understudy.
