Berkeley

I'm in the Bay Area!

My friend Teresa purchased tickets to a play....
I cannot wait for tonight's performance!


Sarah Ruhl is the author of acclaimed plays such as The Clean House, Dead Man’s Cell Phone and Passion Play: A Cycle. The young writer has already earned a MacArthur Fellowship, the Helen Merrill Award, the Susan Smith Blackburn Prize, a Whiting Writers’ Award and a nomination for the Pulitzer Prize.

Les Waters won an Obie Award for Big Love and his shows have ranked among the Top 10 Plays of 2007 in Time Magazine, 2006 in the New York Times and 2005 in TimeOut New York. His recent hits here at home include The Glass Menagerie, The Pillowman and TRAGEDY: a tragedy.


“A fascinating, funny and evocative play…The disconnect between sensory experience and mental perception forms the tantalizing heart of Ruhl’s latest…Ruhl develops the story with the enticing blend of irreverent humor and skewed realism…It’s beautiful. Like most of the play, the end vibrates with sexually charged comedy and affectionate striving.”

The Berkeley Rep always puts on a good show. Go to the Downtown (on the corner at Shattuck) for overpriced drinks afterward, they often have music too. Enjoy!

Going to the theater is such fun. Can you imagine artists pouring themselves into performance again, and again, and again -- and this time, "just for you!"
