Julia never bought a baby before. Okay, she’s adopting, but the agency sure makes her feel like she's buying a baby. Did you know some kids are discounted? A black baby--which is what Julia and her wife Amy are seeking—costs 1/2 of a white baby. 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. But five days after signing the contract at the adoption agency, a birth mother chooses Julia and Amy to raise her baby. And by the way, she’s in labor. While this play deals with some heavy topics, writer and star Julia Jackson -- a semifinalist at the San Francisco International Comedy Competition -- keeps the laughs coming even as the drama increases.

Well the Abbots were absolutely shocked when Grandma’s friend, Sara Jane, tried to assassinate President Ford. Shocked. And it was kind of awkward that Grandpa had helped her get the gun.

Date Night at Pet Emergency
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 doesn't know what to do. All she knows is that this has got to be the worst date night ever.

Hilarious, Heartbreaking & Provocative Solo Performances
Solo Sundays, S.F.'s premier monthly showcase, presents select samplings of veteran virtuosos and top emerging talent in the intimate StageWerx theater in the Mission District. Beyond stand-up and storytelling, solo theater creates casts of thousands - plus special effects - all bursting from a single performer. The results are hilarious and heartbreaking, passionate and provocative, ablaze with personal visions.
W. Kamau Bell is the co-founded and facilitated of the
Solo Performance Workshop. You may be familiar with his name. His solo show, “The W. Kamau Bell Curve” was a critical and popular success this past year in San Francisco, Oakland, Berkeley and most recently at the Comedy Central Stage in LA. He was honored by the SF Weekly as the 2008 Comedian of the Year. Which is likely the reason that the plays created in SPW deliver a very funny and personal perspective on stories that often contain serous outcomes.
SOLO SUNDAYS is being programmed by Bruce Pachtman,
the co-founder of the Solo Performance Workshop as well
as the writer/actor of “don’t make me look too psychotic”,
the acclaimed solo show that ran for a combined100 weeks in
San Francisco, Philadelphia and LA.
We’re thrilled to announce that SOLO SUNDAYS is being produced at one of San Francisco’s finest venues for solo performance, StageWerx, an intimate 50 seat theater directed by Ty and Cory McKenzie, a theater iconoclast with a history of presenting anything from rock operas to scary movies to improv comedy to staged readings to circus arts.
Please join us for what we’re certain will be one of the best shows in town.
