After three sold out performances, THE PINT SIZED PLAYS have come to a end. This was a big one for the San Francisco Theater Pub – the biggest houses, the largest number of collaborators, and, far in a way, the most beer consumed. All in all, a resounding success for a theater operating out of a bar.
But next month we’ve got our eyes set on something Wilder, in a manner of speaking. In WILDE CARD, Theater Pub C0-Founder Stuart Bousel will direct two rarely produced shorts by Oscar Wilde – La Saint Courtesan and The Florentine Tragedy – accompanied by original music from Sara Judge inspired by Wilde’s writing. Internationally celebrated as a paradigm of wit and wisdom, Theater Pub is excited to share an often overlooked side of Wilde’s genius in a cordial bar atmosphere. There will also be, for the first time in Theater Pub history, a sword fight in the bar! Huzzah!
The performance is one night only Monday September 20, 8pm at the Cafe Royale. It would be a tragedy to miss it. Drink is the curse of the working class. Wilde is the gift of the Theater Pub.
