About This Show

The Beard, by Michael McClure, is primal, dirty and amusing exposing the human being as its true form: a creature with throbbing genitalia that is aroused by the slightest knee-jerk reaction. The show was first performed in 1965 at the Actor’s Workshop in San Francisco. Direct police intervention occurred after the fourth performance, charging the actors with “obscenity, conspiracy to commit a felony and lewd and dissolute conduct in a public place.” The production will occur in the EXIT Cafe.
