I am so happy to have this opportunity to rate this play. To begin with, the writer didn't have to spend much time writing, since the silences, which were an integral part of it, were excruciatingly long. Very little happened up to intermission. However, it seemed to be extremely well cast in that the characters were absolutely believable.
At intermission, I found someone who was involved with the show because I wanted to make a little, friendly comment. (This was supposedly a preview.) As it turns out, the person I found was the writer. As an older person, I mentioned to her (a younger person) that as far as I knew, there was no such thing as a "Drive-through" movie--that they were "Drive-ins." (She had mentioned "Drive-through" movies in the play). Sometimes younger people mix things up, and I was just giving her a little piece of info that she might not have known. She said, "I am not interested in your opinion."
Having lost respect for both myself (for having "interfered") and for her, for being so mind-bogglingly rude and for forgetting that previews are still supposedly works in progress, I left. I hope there was more action for the poor bored audience during the second act.
About the Ticket Supplier: The San Francisco Playhouse
The aim of the SF Playhouse is to provide a creative home and inspiring environment where actors, directors, writers, designers and theater lovers converge to create works that celebrate the human spirit. Founded by Bill English and Susi Damilano in 2003, SF Playhouse is Union Square's intimate, professional theatre. Using professional actors and world-class design, the SF Playhouse -- which won the Bay Guardian's 2006 Best Off Broadway Theatre Award and about which the San Francisco Chronicle raved "San Francisco's newest theatre isn't just another tiny stage carved out of a storefront...it's an enticing introduction to a new company" -- has become an intimate theatre alternative to the traditional Union Square theatre fare, garnering 20 Bay Area Theatre Critic nominations in its first year.
