What lies beyond the margins of your favorite stories?

Five Bay Area playwrights explore this shadowy territory in a diverse collection of short plays.

IN PLAIN SIGHT features two vastly different versions of the Cinderella story: the whimsical comedy "Palace Watch" by Kat Meads and the darkly realistic "Pankhadi and the Prince" by Patricia Reynoso. The line-up also includes two contrasting portrayals of notorious mothers: Lee Brady's tragicomic "Mississippi Medea," in which a modern Medea appears on her favorite TV Talk Show, and Mimu Tsujimura's lyrical drama "My Name Is Mother," based on the legend of La Llorona. Two short plays by Carol Lashof round out the evening. They are "When Briseis Met Chryseis," a love story set against the backdrop of the Trojan War, and "After the Prologue," in which the Wife of Bath tells you what women really want.

Directed by: Norman Johnson, Christine Keating, and Libby Vega

Ensemble cast includes: Alicia Bales, Ed Berkeley, Sharon Huff*, Alexandra Lee, Ria Meer, Louel Senores, and Suzanne Vito.
