Our ongoing theater/improv event that brings writers and actors together to create original monologues and performance pieces, just got a lovely nod in San Francisco Magazine, which named us the Best of The Bay in Theatre Humor/Improv!
We’re delighted, of course, and deeply complimented. Thanks, SF Magazine! We think you’re swell too, and are humbled and thrilled by the support!
Haven’t been to a Saturday Write Fever yet- or wondering when the next one is? Look no further! Here’s everything you need to know about our next SWF!
See you there!
San Francisco Theater Pub and the EXIT Theatre are proud to present a fifteenth round of Saturday Write Fever, this time on Saturday, July 12, 2014, with Saturday Write Fever: GO BOOM!
Every second Saturday of the month, we invite writers, actors, directors, theater creators, and theater audiences alike to a free evening of quick script-making and flash-fried performance! This month Stuart Bousel will be crafting prompts from stuff overheard during various July 4th events he’ll have attended the previous weekend (“Dude, I’m so wasted right now!”), further unified by the common theme of having to take place right before, right after, or during an explosion of some kind. Close proximity to Bastille Day (July 14th) may mean some French stuff will be thrown in there too. Or pieces may just have to be written in French. Show up to find out!
Join us in the EXIT Cafe (156 Eddy Street) from 8:30-8:50 pm for registration followed by a 9:00 pm writing sprint where writers have 30 minutes (more or less) to generate original monologues based around that night’s pre-generated prompts. We cast actors from the crowd (no experience necessary), then at 9:30 pm, they perform the work on stage in the café for an on-the-spot, one-night-only, instant festival! Come join in the communal creativity, either as writer, performer, or audience!
Usually hosted by local writers Stuart Bousel and/or Megan Cohen, occasionally hosted by local actor/writer/mangenue Sam Bertken, admission to this event is free, with the Café staying open and staffed so you can purchase drinks and snacks all night long! No need for reservations, though be there from 8:30-8:50 to get your name on the writer list as we will cap it at 20. Of course, if we get 20 writers, that means we’ll also need 20 actors, so be sure to come early and let us know you want to play!
