Peek into the lives of a motley cast of characters on the morning of an English county fair in award-winning playwright Jez Butterworth's Jerusalem. Johnny "Rooster" Byron is a modern-day Pied Piper of sorts, regaling folks with fantastically impossible stories while ignoring his young son in order to sell drugs. Everyone wants a piece of Rooster, be it the local officials who want him arrested, or local thug Troy, who wants to give him a serious butt-kicking. With frequent allusions to the William Blake poem from which its title is derived, this comic, contemporary vision of rural life in modern England was nominated for both the Olivier and Tony awards for Best Play.

Freddy and Me
Written and performed by Bryan Curtiss White
Directed by Nick Pappas
If somebody told you that you reminded them of Freddy Krueger, what would you think? This question is at the center of Freddy and Me, a one-man piece in which Bryan Curtiss White tries to figure out what people mean when they tell him he reminds them of a homicidal maniac. Identity, he finds, is a difficult topic to understand. How much of who he is and what he does is really intentional? At what point does his identity become wrapped up in the ideas that others have about him? With characteristic humor and thoughtfulness, he recounts incidents from his life that have helped to define who he is, while simultaneously examining them through the lens of understanding what it means to be Freddy and Me.
Bryan Curtiss White (Writer/Performer) is working towards the completion of an M.A. in Drama from SFSU. In October of this year, he was pleased to contribute a scene and much of the music for the play Money, which was based on a scenario written for the WPA during the 1930s. Bryan's work as an actor has been primarily in the San Diego area where he has appeared in the Welk Resort Theatre's Fiddler on the Roof and White Christmas, Stone Soup Theatre's The Cradle Will Rock, and Cygnet Theatre's Arcadia.
