The Actors’ Gang

The New Colossus

In this intensely physical production, actors tell their ancestors’ stories in twelve different eras, all woven into a single narrative about escaping an oppressive homeland and being drawn to the beacon above Ellis Island. The play was workshopped during the Obama years in a reaction to the Syrian refugee crises; Director Tim Robbins told the Los Angeles Times, “I looked around at our company, and we have people from all over the world, so I asked everyone to really think about their own families and how they found their way here.” Performed in twelve languages, each used sparsely, and interspersed with live music, poetry, and kinetic movement, the play concludes with a question — who are we as a nation? “The New Colossus holds a theatrical mirror to the nation” (Los Angeles Times).

An Evening with Anne Lamott

“Anne Lamott is both utterly disarming and hysterically funny. One minute, you’re falling off your chair laughing, and the next, she unfurls a sentence that cuts straight to the heart of what you really needed to know” (Chicago Tribune). She addresses subjects that begin with capital letters — Alcoholism, Motherhood, Jesus. She’s armed with both self-effacing humor — she is laugh-out-loud funny — and ruthless honesty, telling her stories with honesty, compassion and a pureness of voice. Winner of a Guggenheim Fellowship and an inductee in the California Hall of Fame, she’s the author of seven novels (Hard Laughter) and several bestselling books of nonfiction, including Operating Instructions (her life as a single mother during her son’s first year), and the classic Bird by Bird: Some Instructions on Writing and Life. Her lectures are much loved and tickets are going fast.

Voices of California is a world-class male a cappella ensemble based in the Sacramento Valley. For this presentation, the ensemble presents Our Continuing Journey, exploring the world of vocal music catapulting them into their second decade.

Seeds

An evening of documentary theater, and a fascinating look at the food we eat. Seeds tells of the seven-year legal battle between a Saskatchewan farmer and Monsanto Inc, one of the largest biotechnology corporations in the world.

An evening of “impeccable performances, dynamic design, and swift pacing” (The Coast), the central question of “who owns life?” leads to an evening of “great journalism, and even better theater” (Montreal Gazette).
