About this show

Annie Elias brings her years of experience in documentary theater to Cutting Ball with the World Premiere of Tenderloin, an unforgettable piece about the people and places in Cutting Ball Theater's neighborhood. Using transcripts of interviews conducted by Elias and her group of actors, Tenderloin strives not only to bring Cutting Ball fully into its community, but literally brings the neighborhood into the theater. Seven actors portray the subjects they interview, creating living portraits from which a portrait of the Tenderloin itself emerges. A powerful and confirming experience, Tenderloin honors the essence of the Tenderloin through the stories of the everyday people that make up this historic downtown San Francisco district.
