Passage


by Christopher Chen
Directed by Victor Malana Maog

When it comes to patriotism, neutrality isn’t an option. You’re either for Country X or Country Y. Journey into the heart of the xenophobic rhetoric and immigration debate that dominates our newsfeeds. Drawing from E.M. Forster's A Passage to India, Obie Award–winning local playwright Christopher Chen explores biases, blurred lines, and bigotry—issues affecting communities right here in the Bay Area and across the world—and asks if friendships can survive in this imbalanced world.

 

This play contains gunshots, loud noises, occasional strong language, and themes of xenophobia. If you would like additional information about the content of this play, you may reach a member of our audience services staff by calling 415.749.2228 or emailing tickets@act-sf.org.

Romeo and Juliet

a Will on Wheels touring production

by William Shakespeare
Directed by Michael Wayne Rice

Star-cross’d lovers. Feuding families. You know the story. But have you seen it hip hop–style? This fresh take on the Bard’s timeless tale serves up teenage angst, insta-love, and epic rivalries with a side of historical beef.

Anon(ymous)

an adaptation of Homer's The Odyssey

by Naomi Iizuka
Directed by Bob Shryock

Begin in the middle. On the border. On the crossing. Begin in the place in between. In this adaptation of Homer’s The Odyssey, newly arrived refugee Anon fights to hold onto his identity in the vast melting pot of contemporary America. As he journeys across the country in search of his mother, he confronts today’s gods and monsters: exploitative businessmen, clueless government officials, and fellow refugees clamoring to not be forgotten. Anon(ymous) is playwright Naomi Iizuka’s poetic tale of borders and biases.
