Abundance weaves the tender-hearted tale of two mail order brides in Wyoming in the late 1860's and spans 25 years as the women adventure into the wild west frontier. The episodic story is at once romantic, funny, brutal and sad. Reminiscent of a Mark Twain story, pulitzer prize winner Beth Henley brings to light the brilliance of the human spirit as we witness the unfolding lives of two courageous women.
The phenomenal Improv Playhouse of San Francisco, the Bay Area's premiere improvisational theatre troupe, specializes in that most difficult and dazzling of improvised high-wire acts – longform improv. Each performance is entirely unique, and relies on suggestions solicited from the audience to get them started on their performance journey of an entire stageplay, full-length movie, Shakespearean tale, or even a delightful series of unrelated scenes – all completely improvised!

Welcome to swingin' England. The disarming and doltish Francis Henshall finds himself trapped by farce into working for two bosses—who are connected to each other in wildly improbable ways. He just has to keep them from discovering each other. Easy, right? Inspired insanity, high-low antics, and nimble wordplay ensue—all backed by live musicians paying homage to rockabilly and a certain Fab Four. Join Francis in the fun as he leads you through this topsy-turvy world of love triangles and mistaken identities. It's more than a sassy update of Carlo Goldoni's classic knee-slapper, A Servant of Two Masters. It's a brilliantly delicious mash-up of splendid comedy, British pantomime, and music-hall revues.
Jerry and Marnie are faded Broadway stars hired by Tom, a rich young technology entrepreneur, to pretend to be his parents in order to impress his girlfriend Natalie, a brilliant violinist and daughter of a renowned physicist. This comedy of falsified identities satirizes the indomitable theatricality of theater folk. Written by Academy Award-nominated writer/director Paul Weitz (About a Boy and In Good Company).
You've never seen Chekhov like this. Aaron Posner's irreverent update of The Seagull lets us into a country house where unrequited desire is drowned in equal parts alcohol and sarcasm. In true Chekhovian fashion, actresses, playwrights, doctors, and novelists bare their souls as they search desperately for the truth of love and art.
"As spellbinding as a deadly snake charmed from its basket…" That's just one of the accolades for Steven Epp and Dominique Serrand's provocative and enjoyable revival of Molière's satire on religious hypocrisy. A seemingly pious Tartuffe ingratiates himself to the wealthy Orgon, gaining access to the old man's house and throwing his family into chaos. As Orgon falls for the scoundrel's ruse, Tartuffe's deceit takes a dangerous turn. Berkeley Rep audiences fell in love with the impish Epp and esteemed director Serrand when they delighted us with such legendary shows as The Miser. This modern interpretation of Molière's most popular play—featuring a hypnotic Epp in the title role—is as intense and incisive as the day it was written, and just as entertaining.
Mom's fine. She's filing for bankruptcy, her health could better, and she should probably stop driving. But she'll overcome adversity through Optimism! and Courage! – or so she tries to convince her daughters through frontier folk songs and tall tales of pioneers past. Wryly funny and generously tender, this new family drama with music won MTC's 2013 Sky Cooper New American Play Prize.
