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.

May 7 & 21

Whoever thought it was a good idea to fall in love..? Whoever thought it was a good idea to fall in love with a Gay Man…or ten…or 200?

“WATER & WHINE” by Marion Lovinger
Paris, 1992. Marion is 32. She has a date tonight. hopefully someone different from her usual losers. They meet in a gourmet restaurant. That’s a good start. He is handsome, he works, he has a car, he is single, he likes wine. Marion is confident that she has met the Prince Charming. Nothing can go wrong around a duck confit and a bottle of Cahors.

“ESCAPE FROM AMERICA” by Annette Roman
After months of protesting Trump, Annette is burning out. A tour of Europe with her niece seems like a good idea. Or maybe a trip farther afield…? But it seems there is no escape! And now it’s time for the reprise of the WOmen’s March. Does she have the energy to stand up and be counted…one…more…time?

“UNFRIENDING TEXAS” by Harriet Patterson
Part of the Times Unseen Initiative Projects.

June 4 & 18

Jet Girl Media presents Stepford Wife Wannabe: a story about the perils of one woman’s entire 40-year work history from age 12 to present; a history (and bad resume) fraught with miscues, misfires, gender transition, and layoffs.  It’s 2018 and there are only two job options left for her now-careerless life…options which the audience will help decide.

Irma is pleased to be part of the Marsh’s times Unseen Initiative developed and directed by David Ford and Rebecca Fisher. She will be performing excerpts from “I Want to Sell Democracy” on Monday Night marsh, and at The Marsh Theater again on July 11, 2018.

“COCKY” by Beth McLaughlin
Beth McLaughlin is exploring the relationship between her father, his faith, and the world he showed his children.

“WHATEVER YOU DO, DON’T…” by Denise Dee
What do you do when you know something isn’t quite right but you’re told to act like everything’s normal? In working class Pittsburgh, you’re not supposed to stand out. One hot summer day, an 8 year old girl crosses a line and there’s no turning back.

June 11 & 25

“MY MOM SAYS I’M BETTER THAN YOU…” by Bobby August Jr.
Join Bobby on his biographical coming-of-age journey from growing up in a military family and then moving to the deep South.

Scott is a tech lifer: Apple, Google, Microsoft, startups. From Steve Jobs to Sergey Brin, it’s a strange world, and Scott wants to talk about it.

“IX” by Jasmine Woods
“IX” explores the Title IX debate regarding universities’ responsibility to pursue justice in cases of on-campus sexual assault. through the story of Clara, a college student who survives acquaintance rape, the play illustrates the scope of the issues at hand and illuminates their personal impact on a woman working to recover from a traumatic incident. Building upon sexual assault awareness raised by the #MeToo movement, “IX” personalizes a political debate and invites the audience to explore Title IX issues from opposing perspectives.

Keta Bill sings Dusty. San Francisco’s own fiery Soul Shouter Keta Bill from Zasu Pitts memorial Orchestra and Big Bang Beat! tells the stories and sings the songs of 60s “White Lady of Soul” Dusty Springfield; how her rise to stardom in England and her love affair with American Black Soul Music challenged artistic segregation. in this 20 minute sampling, Keta will sing some of Dusty’s best known hits like Son of a Preacher.
