Award-winning actress/playwright Chris Black enters the ring for a dramatic one-woman show in Tough, which is inspired by the life of famed boxer John L. Sullivan, who traveled coast-to-coast challenging people to fights. While Sullivan's background, rise to fame and decline motivate the performance, Black's interest also lies in what it means to be strong and how athletes and performers harness that "special something" to become extraordinary. Black opens the show by throwing her hat in the ring and announcing the rules of the game, all while enjoying some good whiskey. Don't miss this unique, gender-bending performance that mixes power and poignancy. 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.
