In this modern masterwork -- critically praised as a unique mix of Oscar Wilde and Bertolt Brecht -- the great Irish writer George Bernard Shaw pits a military industrialist against his crusading daughter. She's a Salvation Army major; he's an arms manufacturer and whiskey distiller -- on certain issues, they could not disagree more. But when he begins donating money to her organization, matters come to a head as the characters grapple with questions of business, faith, family and philanthropy. After 16 years, A.C.T. brings Shaw back to the stage with this co-production with Theatre Calgary, one of A.C.T.'s favorite Canadian collaborators, featuring an international cast of Canadian and American actors.

The writing of this play is beautiful. It is moving and poetic, both dark and light. With vivid characters that remain with you after the show is over. Golden Thread presents a high level production [of the level not commonly seen in SF].
Night Over Erzinga, written by award winning playwright, Adriana Sevahn Nichols, tells the moving story of an immigrant family of Armenian and Dominican heritage, exploring how a man can lose everything but his heart, and how a grandmother can reach through time, to unearth the untold story, and bring her children "home." Spanning two continents and three generations, from Western Armenia of 1913, to 1930's Massachusetts, to 1960's New York, ancestors are reunited with the living, as they each search for solace, and a way to make peace with the past.
