Meetup Description: Under the category of "It's my meetup group and I'll do what I want to - I purchased a ticket to see this and thought it would be of interest to the classic literature group (or maybe I'll end up going alone!) . If you want to go, you need to buy your own ticket. Mine was $17 and I believe it is general admission. I got mine here:http://www.act-sf.org/site/PageServer?pagename=events_conservatory
Anyone interested can also join me later for a cocktail at the Thirsty Bear. Let's try to meet in the lobby beforehand at 7:30 pm.
A.C.T. performing at Zeum Theater
by Maxim Gorky
in a new version by Andrew Upton
Directed by Richard E. T. White
As a tyrannical father lords over his restless adult children in a turn-of-the-century Russian household, a cast of radical free-spirited guests and servants bring the tension to a fevered pitch. The A.C.T. M.F.A. Program joins Jack Willis and Sharon Lockwood (both recently seen in A.C.T.'s Rock 'n' Roll and 'Tis Pity She's a Whore) and Bay Area actor Robert Ernst (A.C.T.'s A Christmas Carol) in this modern take on Maxim Gorky's classic of youth in revolt. As political as it is personal, Philistines is a perfectly etched blend of outrageous family drama and fierce dark comedy.
