Monday Night Marsh

 A Little About Usmnm-sign-fw

Initiated in 1989 at The Hotel Utah, Monday Night Marsh is the seed that started the breeding ground for new performance. This program spotlights the ongoing works-in-progress of emerging solo performers of all levels and ages (16+). We feature a variety of actors, storytellers, musicians, contortionists, and playwrights. Many local celebrities like Marga Gomez and Josh Kornbluth developed their work here and so can you! Become a part of this special program, or come support the four-five different performers each Monday night in San Francisco. Experience the magic. Wonderful things can happen.

As each story on a given night can vary widely between subject matter, the recommended age limit for audience members is 16 and over.


We are now accepting submissions for the July – December 2019 series! Click here for detailed instructions on how and what to submit in your submission. The deadline for submissions is MONDAY, MAY 27. Email Program Director, Alexa Almira at with any questions. Happy writing!

May 6 & 20

“I WONDER” by Dexter Young
Musings of a perpetual wonderer as expressed through storytelling, improvisation, movement and song. This wonderer shares influences and characters in his life, both fictional and non-fictional that have shaped the colorful dimensions in his experience with race, identity, gender, sexuality, mental health, and immigration.

“HI. (Jean-Luc-Godard)” by Aine Donnelly
Inspired by Jean-Luc Godard, clown Rodeo Debbie conducts an aesthetic investigation, where symposium meets jam session, and the audience contributes vital material. Mr. Goddard knows a lot, but you are your own expert on art! Directed by Elizabeth Baron.

“DOIN IT” by Margery Kreitman & Karen Hist
“Doin It” is an excerpt from Margery Kreitman & Karen Hist’s show “Digitally Yours.” It was most recently performed in San Francisco in The Best of LezWrites!, 2018 and presented at the 3Girls Theater’s New Works Festival at Z Below.

“WHEN YOU ARE CALLED” by Susan Jackson & Diana Brown (Performing May 20)
Directed by Susan Jackson
Performed by Diana Brown

Janice Surprise Heyer, televangelist with a soul, finds herself at the Spiritual Inclusion Symposium in San Francisco, September 10, 2011. Politically incorrect in the most correct way ever, she works her way through the crowd, seeking believers and doers and shakers, telling stories of her Southern roots and trying to connect. Will she survive? Will the Bay Area? Can a Southern televangelist find connection in the Bay Area and still keep her faith in the words written in red?

“LETTIN THE LORD LEAD ME” by Carsten Spencer
Lettin’ the Lord Lead Me is a musical memoir play which follows my journey from my early Catholic school years to adulthood. The piece incorporates popular music (sometimes with reworked, original lyrics) and dance to tell the story.
