Approximate running time: 1 hour and 20 minutes
1695 18th Street
San Francisco CA 94107
A World Premiere by Lana Palmer. Every family has its mythologies: Amy and Ruthie share one they have tried to forget. When the sisters return to their family cabin to decide its fate, they begin a moving, lyrical journey through memory and omission, love and grief, lost and found, and the overwhelming power of family history. Bread & Butter Theatre stages contemporary drama and Shakespeare in San Francisco, developing a company that pairs study in physical and devised theatre with grounding in the Stanislavsky and Michael Chekhov acting techniques. Bread & Butter envisions physically exciting, visually stunning, lyrically moving performances of new work, modern classics, and Shakespeare. FUNERAL GAME is presented as part of PlayGround’s Potrero Stage Presenting Program.
