THEME for the 2/23 show: "The Past That Haunts Us"
We can't forget it. Even if we want to.




THE DISAPPEARANCE OF ALFRED LAFEE  (an excerpt)
------------------------------------------------------------------
written and performed by Peter L. Stein

 -> True story: San Francisco, 1923. The naked body of a young rabbi is found brutally beaten in a Fillmore District flophouse. The accused perpetrator - a handsome teenaged sailor - never stands trial, and the incident is buried and forgotten. Now a museum curator is finding himself obsessed by the long-ago scandal. His investigation raises questions about how the past is recorded and erased, and uncovers the murder's haunting impact down the generations.




I SAW SOMEONE'S THROAT GET SLASHED IN A MOVIE AND
THAT'S WHEN I REALIZED THAT NO MATTER HOW LONG OR
HARD MY MOTHER HELD ME, I WAS STILL GONNE DIE (an excerpt)
------------------------------------------------------------------
written and performed by Candace Roberts

 -> My mom always says, "Mortality looms largely in this family." And she's right. Desperately searching for god and meaning, Gramma talks to Jesus, Mom resorts to hoarding while Candace's drunkardly sister lands herself in the looney bin. Meanwhile, Candace tries to pack in as much sex and love as possible ... y'know ... to make herself feel better. Oh ... and this is a musical! So there's gonna be some singin' and some dancin', but Candace isn't much of a dancer, so she's gonna fake it!




DON'T YOU HAVE ANY DIGNITY, MAMA? (an excerpt)
------------------------------------------------------------------
written and performed by Xiaojuan Shu

 -> In order to put Xiao through school, her Chinese peasant mother worked in a polluted factory, scavenged, and even sold her own blood. After years of studying like a machine, Xiao made it to a medical university in Nanjing, but that wasn't big enough for her. She then came to America and became a hedge fund auditor in San Francisco, but there was still something missing. Can Xiao ever find what she wants in life and pay back what her mother has done for her at the same time?
