|The Anarchist Shopping: The Musical 2014-15 Season To Sleep and Dream Wins Critics Circle Award!|
Bay Area Premiere
Nothing is quite what it seems in David Mamet's latest work. With a nod to his mentor, Harold Pinter, Mamet once again employs his signature verbal jousting in this battle of two women over freedom, power, money, religion—and the lack thereof.
Theatre Rhinoceros is proud to present the West Coast Premiere of this exciting drama about a lesbian anarchist on the day of her possible parole.
|The 37th Theatre Rhinoceros Season|
Theatre Rhinoceros Offers 4 Premieres and a Special Event
The Battle of Midway, lesbians in lock-up, Alan Turning, indoors, outdoors… It’s the 2014-15 Rhino Season! This season we present three premieres, three musicals, two dramas, one outdoor spectacle and a rollicking good time! Join us for thrills, spills, and trills! It’s our thirty-seventh anniversary season as the longest running queer theatre anywhere!
Theatre Rhino begins its “Season of Queer Adventure” with a premiere camp-musical by John Fisher and Don Seaver The Battle of Midway: Live! Onstage! and then we present the San Francisco premiere of David Mamet’s searing prison drama (about a lesbian inmate on the day of her possible parole) The Anarchist. But just before the opening of Mamet we have our annual New Year’s Eve Spectacular – this year a one show only presentation of Morris Bobrow’s hysterical musical Shopping! The season continues with the return to San Francisco, after many years, of Hugh Whitemore’s heart wrenching bio-drama about Alan Turing Breaking the Code: the story of the gay man who invented the computer and suffered persecution in the 1950s for breaking England’s sexual code. And finally we go outdoors for a musical extravaganza based on Shakespeare: Timon! The Musical!
Additional play information and season subscription offers are available on the 2014-15 Season page of the website.
