Jan Alejandro's Common Bonds follows four sets of siblings as crises force each of them to come together. Set in San Francisco and the Bay Area, the play is interwoven with themes of individual needs and family demands, sibling competition and parental expectation, and the ultimate demands of marriage and individuality, while the music of Jackson Browne and other artists tie these stories together.
The play features a deaf actress and an American Sign Language interpreter will be signing at all performances.
What the critics are saying:
The world premiere of Jan Alejandro's Common Bonds displays "fine
writing and compelling interwoven setups, artfully directed by Kim Glann. But it's the eight actors playing siblings who shine here. Their onstage chemistry captures that love, anger, biting humor, support and disappointment that are part and parcel of being brother and sister." CRITIC'S PICK -- Backstage West
"Kim Glann directs her top notch cast with skill." -- LA Weekly
