Gene Gore's Cheesecake and Demerol

Born during the Great Depression in the South, Gene would rather help her 
ophthalmologist father surgically remove eyeballs than attend debutant balls in taffeta. But she gives up nursing to marry a doctor and raise four children. Now she is pregnant yet again as her marriage is failing and then a medical crisis strikes. What choices are left to her?

"Attending Gene's show is like having strong coffee with a gracious, vivacious and very witty grandmother. Documentaries and fiction can't compare with this rare opportunityto experience history through the eyes of a woman who lived it all and tells it like it is. Plus, she's funny as hell!"
- San Francisco Fringe

Sundays at 3pm

julia jackson Children are forever

Monday, September 15 - 8pm

W H A T    C R I T I C S    A R E    S A Y I N G:
"In a city of standout solo performers, Julia Jackson can hang with any of them."
   - SF Theaterblog

" Writer-performer and comedian Julia Jackson's well acted and consistently funny autobiographical solo show details her and her female partner's attempt to adopt a newborn girl from a young African American mother in Florida."
    - SF Bay Guardian

   - SF Chronicle

W H A T   T H E   S H O W   I S   A B O U T:

Julia never bought a baby before. Okay, she's adopting, but the agency sure makes her feel like she's buying a baby. Couples competing in the free market of love. Bad ovaries but good credit? Step right up! Did you know some kids are discounted? A black baby--which is what Julia and her wife are seeking costs 1/2 of a white baby. Almost makes Julia and Amy want to run out and start a chapter of the Black Panthers - and Amy's white!

The one saving grace is that the waiting time for adopting a black child is six months instead of the two years it takes for a white baby. Oh wait, a gay couple? Make that a year. What's that? Julia is a recovering alcoholic? And she's insisting on including that info in their Dear Birth Mother letter? Make that anywhere between 2 years and . . . Hilary Clinton's second term

But only five days after signing the contract (non-refundable) at the adoption agency, a bomb drops - a birth mother has chosen Julia and Amy to raise her newborn baby daughter. And by the way, she's in labor. In Atlanta. Good news abounds.

The running time for the show is 90 minutes. There will be one intermission. No one under 16 will be admitted.

"Deal With The Dragon"

written and performed by Kevin Rolston
Can Hunter find love before another incineration?  All he needs to do is grow up, get a job, get out of debt and get the hell away from his roommate.  But every time Hunter faces a problem the guy comes to his rescue, and whoever caused the problem ends up a pile of ash.  BTW: His roommate's a dragon.

"Date Night at Pet Emergency"

written and performed by Lisa Rothman
Lisa's not sure who she should kill: Her dog or her husband? The prognosis isn't good for Sophie the cocker spaniel. Is it any better for her marriage? Ever since Baby #2 hit the scene, Lisa and Kevin have been fighting over sippy cups, fruit salad, and impenetrable origami instructions – at the bowling alley, the dog park, and the dinosaur exhibit at the science museum.  Now Kevin is storming around the emergency pet clinic, ranting about the $2000 vet bill.  How could they have foreseen this? Who ever heard of a dog ODing on antibiotics?! Lisa isn't sure what to do. All she knows is that this has got to be the worst date night ever.

Black Virgins are Not for Hipsters

written and performed by Echo Brown
Echo is about to lose her virginity to a good looking white hipster that she met on Craigslist. This will happen in ten minutes. That gives Echo just enough time to do exactly what you shouldn't do the first time you are about to get laid: contemplate America's racial problems. Echo is black. So she's use to pondering race. But she doesn't want to ponder race IN THIS MOMENT. Right now, all she wants to do is convince herself that she is beautiful, despite a lifetime of conditioning to the contrary. To make herself believe in her own beauty, Echo will pray to all of the gods, call her best friend over 20 times, and talk to her cat about the meaning of life.
