The Time of Your Life -- Saroyan's beloved San Francisco treat.

  • May 27, 2013 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Saroyan's 1939 play is set in Nick's Pacific Street Saloon, Restaurant and Entertainment Palace, a run down dive bar in San Francisco's  Barbary Coast. Much of the action of the play centers around Joe, a young loafer with money who encourages each of the bar's patrons in their eccentricities. Joe helps out a would-be dancer, Harry, and sets up his flunky, Tom, with a prostitute, Kitty Duval. The bar is frequented by a number of colorful characters, including a frenetic young man in love, an old man who looks like Kit Carson, and an affluent society couple.

Nick's saloon is based on the café operated by Izzy Gomez,  which Saroyan frequented.

Ten principal roles.

You must supply your own copy of the script.  A PDF is available in the More -> Files section of this meetup.  You must be logged into meetup.com in order to see it.

    It was a lovely Capraesque play, but too long for our group time.

    If it rains I can't go. But then maybe it won't. I just don't know...

    What did SF look like at the end of the depression and the war in Europe?
