Looking back and looking forward

We've had quite a year!  We competed in PianoFight's SHORTLIVED play competition, traveled to Washington DC to participate in the 2016 Capital Fringe Festival where we were favorably reviewed in the Washington Post for our world premiere production of Jackson's DEATH BE NOT LOUD!  We brought the world premiere of Co-Producer/Playwright Susan Jackson's drama TAKEN to San Francisco in a collaboration with Entropy Productions and 3 Girls Theatre Company.  We had the pleasure of bringing new artists into the company, commissioned an original piece of music for TAKEN, performed for new audiences and drew support from contributors.

In 2017 we're bringing DEATH BE NOT LOUD! back to San Francisco, continuing our collaboration with Entropy Productions.

A huge thank you to all our collaborators and supporters! And a very Happy New Year.
