Keeping Up with the Jorgensons
                         
* Awarded Best of 2017 San Francisco Fringe Festival Honors*

*Fringe of Marin  - Awarded a Critics Circle Best Actor Award for his portrayal of John Held Jr.*
                       
"Keeping Up With The Jorgensons proved to be a delighted hour of mirth mixed with adolescent angst brought on by a cast if characters that could make All in the Family, Rosanne, and Marriedwith Children seem a bit too Disneyfield."- Huffington Post

The year is 1982. Reagan is President, E.T. is released, and Jeremy takes a road trip with his week-end father to Orange County. Forced to repeatedly tickle his fathers feet, sleep in his grandmothers bed and go to an unknown relatives wedding, hell do and say anything that will secure a visit to the most magical place on Earth: Disneyland.

Greco has performed this work to sold-out crowds at The Yes to Everything Festival, the Nugget Fringe Theater Festival, the 2017 San Francisco Fringe Festival, where it won Best of the San Francisco Fringe,  an eight show run at the Marsh Theater in San Francisco and most recently at The United Solo Theater Festival in New York.

Bios

Jeremy Julian Greco is a San Francisco-based actor, director and writer.  Grecos first solo show, With Held, directed by Mark Kenward, was based on six months of interviews with San Francisco mail artist and writer John Held Jr. Greco performed With Held throughout the Bay Area, including at The San Francisco Fringe Festival and the Marin Fringe Festival, where Greco won a Critics Circle Best Actor Award for his portrayal of the artist. In 2013, the Huffington Post wrote, With Held is a quietly transformative work, insightful, compelling, humorous, and ripe with the stage should always possess  pathos.

Mark Kenward (Director), a Bay Area Theatre Critics Circle Nominee and two-time selection for the Best of San Francisco Solo Series, has performed his work in more than 40 cities throughout the US and Canada, including a reception for The House of Representatives and several runs at The Marsh.  He is the creator and performer of eight solo shows, receiving kudos as a commanding storyteller (San Francisco Weekly) and a master of the craft (Contra Costa Times). Kenward is the director of more 30 full-length solo shows, including several that have had runs at The Marsh: David Kleinbergs Hey, Hey, LBJ! and Return to the Scene of the Crime, Kurt Boddens Steve Seabrook: Better Than You, Howard Petricks Rambo: The Missing Years, Houston Robertsons Victory for the Recycled Virgin, Steve Budds What They Said About Love, and Jill Vice's A Fatal Step. Other directing credits include Wayne Harriss Tyrone Short Leg Johnson and Some White Boys, David Caggianos Jurassic Ark, and Jeremy Grecos Keeping Up with the Jorgensons, all three of which won Best of SF Fringe honors.
