The Cutting Ball Theater is in Residence at EXIT on Taylor: 277 Taylor Street, San Francisco.

One of Shakespeare’s most magical plays, The Tempest tells the story of the Duke of Milan, who uses sorcery to cause a shipwreck to bring his treacherous brother to the enchanted isle where he has lived in exile with his daughter for twelve years. Magic, monsters, romance, and drunken foolery spin their world into surreal chaos before the brothers meet and order is restored. In the tradition of Cutting Ball’s uniquely San Franciscan The Taming of the Shrew and expressionistic Macbeth, this three-person chamber version of The Tempest promises to give an up close and personal look at the monsters lurking inside all of us.

Performances are Thursdays - Saturdays at 8pm and Sundays at 5pm. There will be no performance on Thanksgiving Day, November 25.

Rob Melrose and David Sinaiko interviewed on KALW!

Alan Farley asks director, Rob Melrose, and actor, David Sinaiko, how Cutting Ball's experimental take on The Tempest came to be. After you click on the link below, scroll down and on the right you'll find "Open Air" with Alan Farley. The recording begins at 2:03.
