*_Period of Adjustment_

*by Tennessee Williams

Directed by Bill English

November 15, 2011 – Jan 14, 2012**


Christmas Eve in High Point, 1958. George takes his new bride to meet friend and fellow soldier, Ralph Bates, for the holiday celebrations. As snow settles outside, the idyllic Christmas scene begins to dissolve. While past hopes and dreams are recounted, the bittersweet reality of their marital relationships surface with comical and poignant results. Admission to this play includes a complimentary holiday drink.

January 24, 2012 – March 10, 2012

When a newly married couple fixes up two romantically challenged friends, crisis and comedy ensue in this hilarious new play. From their first blind date, which includes an unscheduled visit to the police station, these thirtysomethings, along with the newlyweds who set them up, surprise us and themselves. Mixing sharp wit and humor with the taut suspense of a psychological thriller, this play asks what we owe the people we love the most and the strangers who land on our doorstep.

The Aliens *(West Coast Premiere)**

**By: Annie Baker

March 20, 2012 – May 5, 2012

In the town of Shirley, two thirtysomething dropouts hang out by the dumpster behind the coffee shop where they meditate on music, philosophy, shrooms, and Bukowski. When a teenage employee asks them to relocate, these disillusioned young men find the disciple they’ve been waiting for. A beat-tinged, psychotropic journey, Annie Baker’s _The Aliens _is a funny and heartening look at friendship, ritual, and small town New England.


About the Ticket Supplier: San Francisco Playhouse

The aim of San Francisco 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, San Francisco Playhouse is Union Square’s intimate, professional theatre. Using professional actors and world-class design, San Francisco 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.
