Performance Notes

× Same Boat Theater Collective presents THE EMERYVILLE HORROR, a workshop presentation of a production in progress.Emeryville is disappearing, piece by piece, and thousands of people with it. No one knows what is happening, but Rahel Al-Noury, an Emeryville Police officer, is determined to find out. As Emeryville continues to vanish, Officer Al-Noury encounters many of those in Emeryville affected by this horror: a female Mariachi singer, a pregnant homeless woman, a cancer patient, a genderqueer teen, a son of Vietnamese farmers, an Ohlone woman. Their lives have one thing in common: the suffering dealt to them by the monstrous abuse of the environment. Will they vanish along with the ground they stand on? Why is Emeryville disappearing and what can be done to stop the Emeryville Horror?

Same Boat Theater Collective's mission is to bring innovative, meaningful theatrical experiences about environmental issues to as diverse a local audience as possible, with the goal of generating a critical mass of individuals to act against environmental degradation. We aim to change the current narrative by telling stories about our bioregion, the Bay Area, for all species who live here. Same Boat is a fiscally-sponsored project of PlayGround (Federal ID 94-3336399) and a participant in PlayGround's 2019 Innovator Incubator. Same Boat is the recipient of grants from the City of Emeryville and Theatre Bay Area's CA$H Performs. For more information, visit
