KILL THE DEBBIE DOWNERS! KILL THEM! KILL THEM! KILL THEM OFF!
April 16, 7pm

Far, Far Better Things
May 7, 7pm
So many important stories are happening just below the surface of every community. Join this important conversation about class, culture, and who “gets in and who doesn’t” in our progressive Bay Area bubble.
May 28, 7pm
One person’s advocate is another person’s lobbyist, and their influence is inextricably connected to our elected officials. Join us as we pull back the curtain on this complex relationship.
Kill Move Paradise
July 16, 7pm
The systematic dehumanization and degradation of black Americans is our nation’s original sin. We can turn things around, but it’s going to take all of us. Join this spirited and important discussion about how we all need to participate in this solution.
September 10, 7pm
Five years ago this Pulitzer Prize-winner did something so disruptive that it provoked an artistic director to write a note explaining why his company had chosen to produce the play. The offending choice had nothing to do with sex, violence, or profanity—it was pacing! In a world where speed is king, let’s talk about the latest phenomena shaking things up: The Slow Art Movement.
November 12, 7pm
Manifesting the metaphor! The creative team for Elevada leads a discussion about how design choices were made to bring the fantastical world of this play to life.
January 7, 7pm
Join director Barbara Damashek, local authors, and actors from the production plot drive a stake in the heart of toxic masculinity and the dominant paradigm. On the way we’ll discuss the politics of sex and poverty in Caryl Churchill’s Vinegar Tom and modern America.
