WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Few experience the death of a parent against the backdrop of history. In Taccone's evocative new play, Jon is a theatre director haunted for years by the assassination of his father, San Francisco Mayor George Moscone. When asked to stage a production of Hamlet, the ghost of the king stalks the battlement of Jon's mind and heart, and he is summoned to confront his long buried feelings. Smartly laced with poetry and wit, this world premiere is rooted in a crime that shocked a nation and changed a city--and a young boy--forever. Contains mature themes, strong profanity and graphic sexual language as well as homophobic slurs. It is recommended for mature students 16 and up. Schedule Varies, See Website.
