But when Kate dumps him right before the wedding, Marc is left single, heartbroken, and with non-refundable, non-exchangeable tickets. In an act of desperation, he posts an online ad in the hopes of finding the only person he can now legally travel the globe with… a stranger with the same exact name as his ex-fiancé.

Book by Lincoln City Fellow Emily Goodson

THE WORLD PREMIERE OF

“THE RARE BIOSPHERE”

THE RARE BIOSPHERE by Chris Cragin Day is a timely, relevant, and powerful new play inspired by real-life immigration conflicts happening on a daily basis in this country. Given our current polarized political climate, it is easy to forget that behind these “political issues” are real people whose stories matter, and must be told. Sea Dog Theater, whose mission is to shine a light on stories of alienation and reconciliation, has the incredible opportunity to bring to life one such story with this world premiere.

The production features direction by Lincoln City Fellow Christopher J. Domig,

The Fourth Wall, David Hendren and Sami Korkiakoski | Sculpture, LA

“All the world’s a stage,
And all the men and women merely players”
-As You Like It, William Shakespeare

Lowell Ryan Projects is pleased to present The Fourth Wall, a two-person exhibition featuring sculptural works by Lincoln City Fellow David Hendren and paintings by Sami Korkiakoski. The show is named for the performance convention that imagines a wall––or, more aptly, a one-way mirror––separating actor from audience, where the former stays absorbed in its fiction, seemingly unaware of the very existence (let alone gaze) of the latter. An interesting power dynamic results: the object of the gaze maintains the power to interrupt it, to break the imagined distance between actor and audience and, by doing so, to renew that well-turned Shakespearean verse.

special opening reception: Saturday, April 13, 7-9pm

The Jungle | SF

An urgent story for our time; a once-in-a-lifetime theatrical event.

Following widely-acclaimed, sensation-stirring, and completely sold-out engagements in London and New York, the new play The Jungle will have its west coast premiere this spring.

Meet the hopeful, resilient residents of The Jungle – the short-lived, self-governing society that emerged within a sprawling refugee camp in Calais, France. Take a seat in an Afghan Café, where men, women and children fleeing war and persecution created a world offering warm hospitality amidst squalor and danger. After taking London by storm, The Jungle transforms St. Ann’s Warehouse into this “devastating, uplifting show” (The Guardian) about “a story we need to hear” (Time Out London).
