We’re stoked to let you know what we’ll be doing in our 2012-13 Season:
September 9, 2012 We kick off our 12-13 Season with an installment of our FEED series, where hand-crafted food and performance go hand in hand. In FEED: Corn, the ancient and the modern will rub elbows, as we spin a story of abundance, from bushels to biofuel.
October 4-20, 2012 Next up in our 12-13 season, the ancient and modern will once again meet in our regional premiere (and second-ever production) of Messenger #1, a new ancient Greek tragedy written by award-winning playwright Mark Jackson. Messenger #1 is a contemporary re-telling of the aftermath of the Trojan War, from the perspective of the three messengers who communicate the various power grabs between members of the warring House of Atreus. Replete with song and dance numbers, swinging dizzingly between comedy and tragedy, Messenger #1 examines how “History is bought and paid for—[and] not by the likes of you and I.” “Dark, damning, graceful, and funny as hell.” Scott Moore, SF Weekly
December 16, 2012 Next: due to the immense success of last season’s incarnation, we will bring back our Short and Sweet FEED event, bringing in new material, reprising old favorites (including desserts!), revealing some surprises, and keeping it all short and sweet (but maybe a little longer so you can drink all that delicious beer, eh?)
