The 2019–20 Season

by Will Eno
Directed by Anne Kauffman
Starring two-time Emmy Award winner Tony Hale

Jan 23–Feb 16
A.C.T.’s Geary Theater


An intimate comedy about love, life, and what it means to be human.

“Is it now? I thought I had more time.” Over the course of a very special hour, a man considers his entire life. What does he remember? What will he share? What does it mean? Funny, quirky, and provocative, Wakey, Wakey is an intimate new comedy from Obie Award–winning playwright Will Eno—a surprising yet familiar look at what it means and how it feels to be human.

Experience the play that has everyone talking—plus a never-before-seen companion play, The Substitution, commissioned and developed by A.C.T. and written by Eno featuring Kathryn Smith-McGlynn alongside students from A.C.T.’s acclaimed MFA program, and refreshments to follow the show. Starring two-time Emmy Award winner Tony Hale (Veep, Arrested Development,Toy Story 4), Wakey, Wakey is a remarkable combination of the extraordinary and the everyday that invites you to share the pleasure, humor, and beautiful mystery of life.
 

 

“Glowingly dark, profoundly moving”
The New York Times

 

by Branden Jacobs-Jenkins
Directed by Eric Ting

Feb 13–Apr 12
A.C.T.’s Strand Theater
 

A finalist for the Pulitzer Prize in 2016, this scalpel-sharp dark comedy explores how we cope with trauma and the tales we tell each other to escape. In the dog-eat-dog office of a New York magazine, twentysomethings Ani, Dean, and Kendra compete for a book deal to kick-start their careers. But after tragedy strikes, which one of them will write the story?

MacArthur “Genius” winner Branden Jacobs-Jenkins (Appropriate, Everybody) reunites with Cal Shakes Artistic Director Eric Ting, who directed the playwright’s An Octoroon (2017) at Berkeley Rep. Shocking, satirical, and viciously funny, Gloria is a thought-provoking work from a powerhouse playwright. 


“[A] whip-smart satire of fear and loathing”

The New York Times 

“Shocking, hilarious and spectacularly honest”
Chicago Tribune

“A sharply observed satirical comedy . . . a springboard for the playwright to examine the ramifications of our exploitative, media-saturated age”
The Hollywood Reporter

 


by Lydia R. Diamond
Directed by Tony Award winner Pam MacKinnon
Choreographed by Camille A. Brown
A coproduction with Arena Stage

Mar 5–29
A.C.T.’s Geary Theater

“I play with ‘the big boys.’ Only ever did play with boys, even when I was a little girl.”—Toni Stone

Toni Stone dreams of nothing but baseball. But to become the first woman to play professionally with men as a member of the Negro League’s Indianapolis Clowns, she must confront hostile crowds, ruthless team owners, and players who slide spikes first. As she negotiates life’s challenges and opportunities on and off the field, Toni stays true to herself and reaches for who she can be.

In this new play, playwright Lydia R. Diamond (Broadway’s Stick Fly and Showtime’s The Affair) uncovers the theatrical journey in Martha Ackmann’s book, Curveball: The Remarkable True Story of Toni Stone. The culmination of a seven-year collaboration between Diamond and director Pam MacKinnon, Toni Stone is the extraordinary, real-life story of a trail-blazing Bay Area athlete.

 

“One of the best players you have never heard of”
Negro Leagues Baseball Players Association

“Best New Play of 2019”
The Wall Street Journal

“Critic’s Pick! Astonishing, dancelike movement by Camille A. Brown”
The New York Times

“A provocative story of grit and determination”
Newsday

 

Book, music, and lyrics by Richard O’Brien
Directed and choreographed by Sam Pinkleton

Apr 23–May 17
A.C.T.’s Geary Theater
 

On a dark and stormy night, Brad and Janet get a flat tire . . . So begins our party at The Geary Theater. Tony Award–nominated director-choreographer Sam Pinkleton (Soft Power and Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812) reimagines this swirling, sci-fi world for 2020 San Francisco.

Before this cross-dressing classic was ever a midnight movie at The Strand, Richard O’Brien’s Dr. Frank-N-Furter, Magenta, and Riff Raff started life as a smash rock musical. Experience The Geary as never before in this outrageous celebration of sex, drag, rock’n’roll, and being who you really are. In a dazzling mix of sequins and fishnet stockings, “Let’s do the Time Warp again!”

 

“Delicious nostalgia”
The New York Times

“Thoroughly entertaining”
Broadway World

“A musical that deals with mutating identity and time warps becomes one of the most mutated, time-warped phenomena in show business”
The New York Times

 

by Qui Nguyen
Directed by Jaime Castañeda

Jun 4–28
A.C.T.’s Geary Theater
 

After the rollicking success of Vietgone (2018) at The Strand, playwright Qui Nguyen returns to A.C.T. for the second chapter in his kickass, hip-hop trilogy about a Vietnamese family who swap war-torn Saigon for rural ’70s Arkansas. Lovers Tong and Quang are now married, but with low-wage jobs, a son struggling with English, and rumors of old flames, the challenges are only beginning.

Nguyen reunites with director Jaime Castañeda to draw from rap, leap into martial arts, and dig deep into his own family journey. Funny, sexy, and subversive, Poor Yella Rednecks confirms Nguyen as a groundbreaking playwright of the new American story.
