Is Mark Kenward betraying his working class roots when he unknowingly stumbles upon a fortune? This question haunts him into pursuing a most unusual spiritual path. The path of business. A path he knows nothing about. A path that leads him down into the underbelly of the Oakland Hills and the cutthroat world of yoga studio management. A mysterious path populated by trust-fund Buddhas and 90-year-old real estate sharks. “The Dharma of Dollars” is a high-spirited comedy full of big laughs, but within the skillful strokes of a master humorist lurks a darker critique of class, privilege, and spirituality.
Kenward probes our current attitudes toward easy enlightenment and the almighty dollar, and in doing so lifts the veil on a subject that we rarely talk about, but that we are all thinking about. Our money.
In recent months the Marsh has proven it’s reputation as the Bay Area’s — and one of the nation’s — foremost presenters of solo performance with the success of plays by Charlie Varon, Brian Copeland, Dan Hoyle, and Wayne Harris.
