Celebrate American bars with comedic satire Tipped & Tipsy, winner at the 2013 San Francisco Fringe Festival. You'll meet bartender Candy, three of her hard-drinking regulars, the lascivious bar owner and a collection of other saloon staples. You'll laugh as Candy, with the help of a few cocktails, transforms this collection of lonely drunks into a loving family and feel her pain as she tries to keep her favorite regular from drinking himself to death. Written and performed by Jill Vice, a bartender herself, this production showcases her remarkable physical comedy skills as she transforms into various characters without any help from set or costume changes.

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. _
