free wine! Dang, that is a nice little perk. Cookies are $1, which is a fair price imo.

The weather was a little cool outside.. I wore dressed in layers, as always. I'm usually cold when I sit in an audience, but I was fine here. Apparently other members of the audience were warm as they were fanning themselves, which I found distracting. Also the chairs are very creaky and when people would shift in their seats, it made noise which was also distracting..

Beautiful, unexpected, surprising play. There are two story lines that come together during the course of the play. The first is a fantasy, part Alice in Wonderland, part Pan's Labyrinth; the second an intense drama about crossed love and an...continued

Walker’s award-winning plays include Vigilance, A Beautiful Home for the Incurable and The Gravedigger’s Tango.

About the Ticket Supplier: Second Wind Productions

Now in its 24th year, Second Wind Productions has performed from San Francisco to Edinburgh, Scotland. Its production of The Gravedigger's Tango was called "fascinating, classy, invigorating, and smart," by The San Francisco Examiner. "Effortlessly enthralls... gripping suspense deftly rendered," writes the SF Bay Times of Second Wind's production of The Woman in Black. And the Marin Independent writes, "Second Wind has a goal that is rare in today's bottom-line theatre world: to use the stage to explore social and political issues that impact ordinary American lives."

Second Wind is dedicated to theatre that approaches social and political issues from the human perspective. They embrace the tradition of theater as an instrument of both education and catharsis.
