Running time: 1 hour 25 minutes, with no intermission
In a bustling London train station, free-spirited American Georgie unexpectedly kisses mid-70s British butcher Alex, and sets his world reeling. When she turns up in his shop a few days later, he is suspicious. Is she really attracted to him, or is there a longer con on the cards? As Alex is drawn into Georgie’s anarchic world, his conventional life becomes chaotic, uncertain, and undeniably richer.
In this “vibrant and emotionally charged” (The New York Times) new play, Tony Award–winning playwright Simon Stephens (The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time) crafts a comedy that rethinks the polar magnetism of opposites attracting, as well as the conventions of modern-day playwriting. With its perfect collision of strangers and strangeness, Heisenberg was an electric hit on Broadway from one of theater’s most original voices.
3) YOU ARE MY SUNSHINE
You Are My Sunshine is a fact-inspired, multi-decade character study of a man of mythic American proportions whose passions and demons lead to tragedy, narrated in Woody Guthrie-style folk songs, accompanied by Bay Area music favorites Chris Haugen (guitar) and Trevor Marcom (vocals/guitar). This ensemble drama was spurned from a long-worn, much-hushed rumor in Kelli Kerslake Colaco's family that her great grandfather, Ernest Fletcher Hodge (a semi-pro baseball player with the Detroit Tigers), lost his mind one hot summer night in Blytheville, Arkansas and killed his wife, his mother-in-law and then himself. Part John Steinbeck, part Coen Brothers, this intriguing play focuses on the search for truth behind a dark family legend vis-à-vis an ancestor and the women and children in his life. See You Are My Sunshine at San Francisco's Phoenix Theatre.
