With a background in stand-up comedy and the award-winning solo show Eat, Pray, Laugh under her belt, Alicia Dattner's new one-woman show The Oy of Sex is a good bet if you're looking for laughter. Dattner recounts stories of unrequited love, interminable virginity, a list of loony lovers, and a dysfunctional family for an uproarious tale of sex, drugs ... and more sex. Dattner has performed with Arj Barker, Maria Bamford, Bill Santiago, and Moshe Kasher at comedy clubs in New York, L.A. and London. She was recently named "Best Comedian" by SF Weekly. Learn More

Vital Signs is a frank and funny vivisection of life on-the-job in a modern hospital in wildly diverse San Francisco. Equally comic, tragic and touching, it reveals what really goes on behind-the-scenes in a bustling medical center where patients, nurses, and families try their best to make the most of some very difficult, and at times utterly ridiculous, situations. Playing nearly two dozen characters, Alison is hoping to raise your blood pressure, have you in stitches, and give you a probing, insider’s x-ray view of the hospital setting and the people who valiantly cope with it.
The play runs 75 minutes with no intermission. It is recommended for ages 17 and above.
Vital Signs is based on true experiences that have been broadly fictionalized. All persons and institutions appearing in Vital Signs are fictitious and/or composited. Any resemblance to real people, living or dead, is entirely coincidental.
