SAN FRANCISCO THEATER PUB PRESENTS: EXPLORE THE TROPE: DON’T FALL ASLEEP!
You spend a third of your life unconscious and paralyzed. If that doesn’t concern you, you should join us in September for Explore the Trope: Don’t Fall Asleep! a new show by Christine Keating, directed by Sydney Painter.
Act One, Hag-Ridden, uses folklore-inspired monologues to tell the tales of hags who condemn writers to die if they fall asleep, succubi who control men and impregnate women while they slumber, and witches who take sleeping peasants for joy-rides.
Act Two, Alien Abduction, adapts a classic pulp novel short story into a flashy, old-timey radio play about alien abductions.
Act Three, Sleeping Around, incorporates multi-media elements to tell the story of a person who believes they are sleeping soundly…until their phone records tell a different story.
Why do we sleep?
What happens when we sleep?
What CAN happen?
Featuring Andrew Chung, Danielle Ishihara, Freddy Merlos, and Jeunée Simon.
The show plays four times, only at PianoFight and is FREE (with a five dollar suggested donation).
