What You'll Get
See the latest and greatest new work from up-and-coming Bay Area playwrights at Best of PlayGround 20. Each performance features six short plays, including Madeleine Butler's drought-inspired parable The River God; Isaac Ontiveros' Digging Ditches in Fresno, a tender examination of two generations of Latina women; and Josh Williams' conspiracy-theory look behind the scenes of the moon landing, The Lunatics. Kirk Shimano's Boys Beware assesses what gay pride means in the wake of the Stonewall Riots while Karen Macklin's comedy Ophy's Apothecary follows a young woman who gets more than she bargained for when she seeks relationship advice from a professional. Finally, Patricia Cotter's I'm Really Sorry About This shows what happens when Siri goes rogue during a woman's drive home. Get priority tickets to enjoy all of these exciting new works from a reserved seat in the best section at Thick House, along with a complimentary glass of wine before the show.
