With the book Lean In making a splash in 2013, the topic of women and success is just as fresh and current as it was in the 1980s, when Caryl Churchill wrote Top Girls in response to Margaret Thatcher's ambitious rise to power in the UK. Called "the best British play ever from a woman dramatist" by The Guardian, Top Girls follows Marlene, a ruthlessly ambitious career woman, who has seized every opportunity to make it to the top. In the play's famous opening scene, she celebrates her big promotion at a surreal dinner party whose guests are famous women from history and myth. After this celebratory moment, Top Girls changes course to show the cost of Marlene's ambitions. When a young relative shows up unannounced at her workplace, Marlene must examine what the next generations of women will gain (or lose) from the choices she made in her rush to the top. Learn More
Spalding Gray: Stories Left to Tell (Jan 21 - Feb 19, 2011)
Bay Area Premiere
This unique collection of the master monologist’s work (“Swimming to Cambodia”) catapults the audience into the hilarious, heartbreaking, and ultimately remarkable life of one of the most irreverent and revered storytellers of our time. A five-person ensemble performs the beloved classics and never-before-heard stories that embrace the wit and wisdom found in the words of Spalding Gray.
M. Butterfly by David Henry Hwang (March 18 - April 16, 2011)
An Unforgettable Drama
The most bizarre fact of this incredible play is that it is based on a true story. A French diplomat carried on a twenty-year affair with a Chinese actor and opera singer, not realizing that his partner was in fact a man masquerading as a woman. From these basic facts comes a sensational drama that wonders how such an event could happen, and what stereotypes create the distortion between East and West, as well as between men and women. Interwoven with illusions to the Puccini opera, "Madame Butterfly,” "M. Butterfly" is a highly theatrical story of love and betrayal set during China’s Cultural Revolution.
Candide of California by Voltaire (May 13 - June 5, 2011)
Modernized and adapted by Brian Katz
In this best of all possible countries, in this best of all possible worlds, lived a young man called Candide who was sure everything that happens is for the best. Sadly for our hero, the rest of the world has a slightly different outlook. This fast-paced, scatological, ensemble-based modernization proves that Voltaire's sarcastic, bitterly dark, hysterically funny novella is more than timeless; it is, in fact, about our very here and now!
