Southern Railroad Theatre Company's Director of TAKEN, Wesley Cayabyab performs tonight in Cyclone Dancing at the Shelton Theatre in San Francisco!

LOUISE has a beautiful two month old baby and she has just been admitted to the MFA program at SFSU. She's a published poet. How hard could this motherhood thing be? Her husband GEORGE is a rock star pediatrician, up for a prestigious Fellowship, but he's never home. And KATY, like most babies, screams. All the time. Louise has no friends or family in this big new city. But that's okay. She's doing fine. She doesn’t need help. Just a little sleep. Humor and the Hospital Advice Line keep her going....for awhile. Will LOUISE survive in this surreal new territory? Will KATY survive?

A performance of CYCLONE DANCING, a new full-length play by Madeline Puccioni. Complimentary drinks, nibbles, and coffee. Please stay for a talk-back with the playwright!
