As per the theater's recommendation, park in the Sutter/Stockton garage -- really cheap. We paid $2 for the 4 hours we were there.

Best to take public transit or walk. Be prepared for warm house as stage lights keep the audience warm.

Description

Set in a law firm and a courtroom, Pomp and Circumstance is about the personal trial of a talented yet suppressed young attorney coming to terms with his father, a famous and reluctantly retiring criminal defense lawyer, as they handle their first, and last, court trials. It explores the boundaries between sex and love, religious law and civil law, acting and reality, and parents and their children.

Set in the sample room of an in-vitro fertility clinic, Sperm Warfare takes a hard look at how the biological clock impacts male-female relationships in sometimes role-reversing ways. As a 39-year-old determined wife rubs her frustrated husband the wrong way and a sensuous young nurse makes matters worse, the husband and wife are forced to define themselves anew.
