This staging of Harold Pinter's classic drama features Marco Barricelli, Tony Award winner Judith Ivey, and Stratford Festival star Scott Wentworth. In an undisturbed English seaside town, the inhabitants of a ramshackle boarding house react to the arrival of two unsettling strangers. Where do the mysterious Goldberg and McCann come from? Who sent them? And why do they keep asking about the sole boarder, piano player Stanley? As the party guests, including flighty Lula and flirty landlady Meg, gather for Stanley's birthday, the desperate pianist is forced to confront a surreal interrogation. Seething with mystery, danger, and sudden humor, this play is signature Pinter.
John Douglas Thompson returns to the Geary to take on one of theater's most iconic roles: Hamlet. Two seasons ago, Thompson dazzled Geary audiences in the virtuoso one-man show Satchmo at the Waldorf. Now, to kick off the 2017-18 season, Thompson comes back to San Francisco to take on, for the first time one, of Shakespeare's most complex and heartbreaking characters. In the story of a man who wakes up to find his world upended and his closest friends unworthy of trust, Shakespeare shows us how quickly change can happen — how an orderly kingdom ruled by a loving king can, in one stroke, become unrecognizable.
Libby Skala's one-woman show, inspired by Kansas high school students whose National History Day project, a play about Polish Catholic social worker Irena Sendler, rescuer of 2,500 Jewish children during WWII, resulted in her 2007 Nobel Peace Prize nomination. Music by Steven May.
Lovers, Amazon women, and mystical fairies share the stage in this colorfully imaginative take on Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream set in Trinidad and Tobago's Carnival. The audience becomes part of the cast as they are taken through an enchanted forest upon a magical night revealing star-crossed lovers, magical fairies, and a troupe — all before the Carnival celebration on the Duke and Duchess's wedding day.
On a weeklong silent retreat in the woods, six wildly disparate souls looking for answers find that staying quiet doesn't necessarily bring inner peace. The acclaimed new comedy from Drama Desk Award-winning playwright Bess Wohl, Small Mouth Sounds is a wickedly sharp look at reflection and self-discovery. Under the eye of an unseen guru, these six have gathered to get away from it all. But as they listen to their leader's ruminations (and try to hook up while struggling to meditate without snacks), they learn that silence can indeed be golden. It can also be funny, frustrating, erotic, comforting, and profoundly passive-aggressive.
This is Chekhov — like you've never seen it before. Award-winning playwright Aaron Posner's bold, raucous, contemporary riff on The Seagull moves the Chekhov work to a country house where unrequited desire drowns in sarcasm and alcohol. Actresses, writers, and even a ukulele-playing cook all bare their souls as they struggle to find the truths of life. And everyone discovers the disappointments of art, love, and growing up in this skillful remix of Chekhov's classic.
