About this show

Acid Test is the true story of Ram Dass, renowned spiritual teacher and LSD pioneer. Presented by the Marsh San Francisco, the show explores Ram Dass's many incarnations, from being Richard Alpert, the scion of a wealthy Jewish family and a psychology professor at Harvard, to launching the psychedelic revolution along with Timothy Leary. Whether meeting his guru in India or suffering a paralyzing stroke, Ram Dass illuminates his search for inner peace and lasting truth with humor and humility. Written by prize-winning playwright Lynne Kaufman, featuring acclaimed actor Warren David Keith, and staged by veteran director Nancy Carlin, Acid Test explores Ram Dass's journey from "be here now" to "still here" to "be love."
