Woven from pieces of all five of Sam Shepard's fiction and poetry collections into a new theatrical adaptation, 36 Stories follows a lone writer on his journey across America's desert highways, where he encounters a severed talking head, a dangerous female mercenary, a man-sized hawk and more. Shepard approved the script by Amy Kossow of Word for Word, premiering as part of the Bay Area's salute to the writer on his 70th birthday and starring local favorites Rod Gnapp, Carl Lumbly, Delia MacDougall, Joanne Winter and Patrick Alparone. The tribute event, Sheparding America, featuring revivals and more, is spearheaded by Magic Theatre, which premiered the playwright's Pulitzer Prize-winning Buried Child in 1978. Learn More

Wonderful ensemble. Loved to see so many talented bay area actresses and actors work their magic. A sweetly old-fashioned and light and sad and funny collection of stories. Engaging, uplifting without being saccharine.
Directed by Delia MacDougall and Joel Mullennix

About the Ticket Supplier: Z Space StudioFounded in 1993 by David Dower, the Z Space Studio has become one of the nation's leading laboratories for the development of new voices, new works and new directions in American theater.
By creating a space where all types of artistic development can occur side by side, the Z Space has become what Berkeley Repertory Theatre's Artistic Director Tony Taccone describes as "a virtual bastion of creativity, a bubbling cauldron of new work, and a safe haven for unfettered creative expression."
Given the nature of development as a "behind the scenes" endeavor, the Studio's impact is often invisible to the general public. However, whether they know it or not, over 100,000 people across the country experience theater from artists that developed at the Studio through our three main programs (Word for Word Performing Arts Company, Z Plays Development, and Youth Arts).
The Z Space employs hundreds of artists each year in the process of developing new works -- creating work for a diverse audiences in fields as varied as solo performance, ensemble theater, puppetry, acrobatics, dance, and multimedia production.
