About the Ticket Supplier: Actors Theatre of San Francisco

Founded in August of 1989 by a group of professional actors and directors who shared a common desire to produce ensemble theatre works, the founding members of the Actors Theatre of San Francisco committed themselves to creating a permanent repertory company whose work would reflect their ideals of ensemble theatre: a theatre where all the participants share the same artistic vision, have a unified approach to the rehearsal process and a desire to create revelatory theatre that surpasses their desire for individual gain. The founding members gave themselves no restriction as to style, content or period. Instead, they committed themselves to producing theatre that is designed to enlighten and illuminate the human condition.
