20 plays in 40 minutes: An Infinite Wrench Graduation Show

I’ve been taking a course with the SF Neo-Futurists for the past few weeks, and we’re doing our class show this Wednesday!
The staple Neo-Futurist show is The Infinite Wrench, an ongoing attempt to successfully perform 30 plays in 60 minutes. Since this is a class show, we’ll be making a smaller attempt: 20 plays in 40 minutes! (Slightly reduced number of plays! Same degree of difficulty!)
You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll hopefully think about performance in a new way.
You’ll pay nothing and depart with valuable experience!
Seriously though: I love the neo-futurist aesthetic and I think it’s a wonderful thing for anyone to experience in any form. I’d be really happy if some fellow MeFites wanted to come and see what the fuss is about.

Yoni Ki Baat - 10th Anniversary

Yoni Ki Baat, inspired by The Vagina Monologues, presents true stories by and about South Asian women talking about sexuality, gender, and womanhood as it intersects with race and culture. To celebrate 10 years in the Bay Area, this year's production will present selected work from past shows, covering topics from queer desire to infertility, body hair to facial hair, sex on a plane to sex in public, and much more - including a diatribe against Fair and Lovely. There are 2 evening productions on March 22nd and 23rd and a self-identified-women's only matinee on March 23rd. Tix are $15: partial proceeds go towards supporting organisations that help women and girls. [more inside]

Suicide's Requiem at The Garage

Suicide's Requiem is a collaborative dance-theater performance created & performed by and about survivors of suicide and mental health issues - whether directly or through a loved one - soundtracked by Mozart's Requiem and personal interviews. Our aim is to educate people about suicide through personal perspectives, and encourage personal and societal healing around mental health. I have been involved with this project since day 1 and have found it profoundly powerful; I would be really honoured to have your presence. [more inside]

Yoni Ki Baat

Yoni Ki Baat is a South Asian take on the Vagina Monologues that has been part of the Bay Area for nearly 10 years. The pieces, written by South Asians around the world, deal with various themes of gender, sexuality, and race - from sexual repression, to health and beauty concerns, to love and marriage. I am performing in this so I'd love to see you there! [more inside]

Noel Coward play + possible socializing before or after

A pal of mine is in the Silver Spring Stage production of Noel Coward's Private Lives and nearly guarantees a good time to any attendee. Cutting British wit, that sort of thing. It's at 8. Wanna grab beverages/food before &/or after? Update: My pal says, "For pregaming, there's a Mexican place also across the street that is ideal - Fajita Coast." So I hereby propose that we meet there at 7pm. I shall be there with a book in any case. [more inside]
