San Francisco Playhouse presents the world premiere of award-winning playwright Lauren Gunderson's (Exit, Pursued by a Bear) intriguing new production: Bauer. Rudolf Bauer -- a German artist celebrated for his avant-garde, nonobjective work -- was a genius so driven to create that he continued to sketch his drawings on scavenged scraps of paper even while jailed by the Gestapo for his "degenerate" art. And his passionate affair with Hilla Rebay (director and curator of the Guggenheim Museum) was the stuff of legend. So why did he stop creating? This provocative production delves into the life of this brilliant artist, exploring the power struggle and intrigue that ultimately led to Bauer's disappearance from the art world. Learn More

When a newly married couple fixes up two romantically challenged friends, crisis and comedy ensue in this hilarious new play. From their first blind date, which includes an unscheduled visit to the police station, these thirtysomethings, along with the newlyweds who set them up, surprise us and themselves. Mixing sharp wit and humor with the taut suspense of a psychological thriller, this play asks what we owe the people we love the most and the strangers who land on our doorstep.
The Aliens *(West Coast Premiere)**
**By: Annie Baker
March 20, 2012 – May 5, 2012
In the town of Shirley, two thirtysomething dropouts hang out by the dumpster behind the coffee shop where they meditate on music, philosophy, shrooms, and Bukowski. When a teenage employee asks them to relocate, these disillusioned young men find the disciple they’ve been waiting for. A beat-tinged, psychotropic journey, Annie Baker’s _The Aliens _is a funny and heartening look at friendship, ritual, and small town New England.
About the Ticket Supplier: San Francisco Playhouse
The aim of the SF Playhouse is to provide a creative home and inspiring environment where actors, directors, writers, designers and theater lovers converge to create works that celebrate the human spirit. Founded by Bill English and Susi Damilano in 2003, SF Playhouse is Union Square’s intimate, professional theatre. Using professional actors and world-class design, the SF Playhouse — which won the Bay Guardian‘s 2006 Best Off Broadway Theatre Award and about which the San Francisco Chronicle raved "San Francisco’s newest theatre isn’t just another tiny stage carved out of a storefront…it’s an enticing introduction to a new company" — has become an intimate theatre alternative to the traditional Union Square theatre fare, garnering 20 Bay Area Theatre Critic nominations in its first year.
