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

Funny, affectionately sharp and thoughtful storytelling. The juggling and puppetry were magical and worked well with the words. Sara took some wonderful risks (of balance, of memory, of characterization) in an intimate theater space. Glad I saw it!

“Felder is a master storyteller and social satirist whoses gentle but incisive humor recalls Lily Tomlin or Jerry Seinfeld — if they could juggle.” —Santa Cruz Sentinel
Sara Felder’s Out of Sight
Written & Performed by Sara Felder
Directed by David O’Connor
Solo theater artist and trickster, Sara Felder, invites you into the story
of a nearly-blind mother and her lesbian daughter who try to “see” each
other as they navigate their different perspectives on Israel. With her
mix of circus tricks, shadow puppets and a Jewish queer sensibility, Felder sets out to balance family loyalty, social justice and juicy lemons.
