Many theatergoers claim that life imitates art, which can be frustrating when they pause arguments for intermissions or direct drivers to turn "stage left" at stop signs. Learn to navigate the theatrical world with today's Groupon: for $45, you get two tickets to Bellwether, presented by Marin Theatre Company in Mill Valley (up to a $110 value). Showings are Tuesday–Sunday through October 30, and tickets are valid for any available theater seat. Seniors and youth receive discounted admission.
Bellwether's unnerving plot ushers audiences through an adult fairy tale characterized by suspense, paranoia, and fantastic intrigue. The play's world-premiere production delivers powerful storytelling penned by playwright Steve Yockey. Skilled actors, helmed by Arwen Anderson and Gabriel Marin, tell the suspenseful story of the fictional community of Bellwether, which epitomizes the idyllic American contemporary towns with its low crime rates and apple-pie-baking golden retrievers. Peaceful surroundings become the venue of swirling suspicion and intrigue when a 6-year-old girl goes missing, leaving parents and police without clues as even darker events begin to occur. Marin Theatre Company has produced complex shows for more than 40 years and sponsors outreach programs that introduce large numbers of students to drama without giving a bard a megaphone.
Marin Theatre Company’s ticket prices vary based on day of the week and for matinee performances.
