The Marsh is pleased to celebrate it’s twentieth anniversary by announcing a varied, eclectic and intriguing 2009 Fall Season. The coming months will bring two highly anticipated new shows from Ann Randolph and Dan Hoyle, the return of Charlie Varon’s blockbuster hit, “Rabbi Sam” and the extension of both Rick Reynolds' new show about middle age as well as Don Reed’s sleeper hit, “East 14th,” now entering its fourth month at The Marsh. In addition, the US State Department has invited Dan Hoyle to perform his award-winning “Tings Dey Happen” on a whirlwind two week, five city tour of Nigeria, sponsored by the United States State Department as part its focus on corruption issues. To prepare him for this important audience, he will be performing “Tings” on the Marsh stage in September. When Stephanie Weisman started The Marsh by reading poetry in the Hotel Utah twenty years ago, she could have only have dreamt her theater would become part of the international dialogue.
To round out the season, Marsh Youth Theater’s Teen Troupe will perform Ron Jones' “The Wave,” a story based on an experiment in fascism Jones conducted in the sixties while a history teacher in Palo Alto, with interaction between the original students and Marsh Youth Theater’s young performers. And last, but not least, The Marsh is hosting an International Czech Theater Festival, the result of a long standing exchange between artists, clowns, and directors connected with Ctibor Turba in the Czech Republic and James Donlon of the Flying Actor Studio in San Francisco. The long range goal is for Marsh performers to tour in Central and Eastern Europe.
For two decades, The Marsh has been a breeding ground for new performance and, as their fall season attests, the well never runs dry.
The Marsh is located at 1062 Valencia Street at 22nd Street. For more information, the public can call 415-826-5750 or visit The Marsh website at www.themarsh.org. To purchase tickets call 1-800-838-3006 or go to www.themarsh.org.
