Sir John Vanbrugh's 17th-century masterpiece, The Provoked Wife, skewers lousy marriages and the ways we deal with them with a sarcastic wit as fresh-seeming as it was when the comedy premiered over 300 years ago. In this energetic production by Generation Theatre, duels, drunken escapades and cross-dressing cuckolds abound as Lady Brute deals with the antics of her oafish husband -- and with the advances of the dashing Constant. It's all part of a lesson that, centuries later, we have yet to learn: Don't provoke your wife. Learn More

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.
