THE MOTION - NOW CLOSED

April 15 & 16

Written by Christopher Chen · Directed by Patrick Dooley

An incendiary new play exploring values and belief systems. It begins as a scholarly debate about animal rights, only to veer into something else entirely as questions turn much more intimate.

YELLOW FACE

June 17 & 18

Written by David Henry Hwang · Directed by Daniel Eslick

"It’s a memoir – a kind of unreliable memoir." The play begins with the 1990s controversy over color-blind casting for Miss Saigon before it spins into a comic fantasy, in which the character DHH pens a play in protest and then unwittingly casts a white actor as the Asian lead. (New York Times)

PLUCK

August 19 & 20

Written by Jan Rosenberg · Directed by Molly Van Der Molen

It's 2003. Fourteen-year-old Cleo and Bea are twins. Cleo can't stop running away from womanhood. Bea can't stop running away, period. When we don't have the words for what we're becoming, we make up myths instead. A play about gender identity, dysphoria, twins, and monsters in the age of AOL.

WE 3

October 21 & 22

Written and Created by Shelley Doty

This new work uses music, movement, and soliloquy to trace the common threads linking three women of color living disparate lives. Created by Hedwig’s Skip the Needle band member, Shelley Doty, and workshopped at Berkeley Rep’s Ground Floor.
