What: With curiosity and a sense of wonder, Naomi Iizuka's play explores the mysteries that give the San Francisco Mission District its depth, complexity and charm. It is a richly layered ghost story that is told in 17 vignettes, inspired by the history of the Mission. Under Catherine Castellanos' nuanced direction, 14 student actors create 31 vivid characters - from Mambo kings to murderers - drawn from a century of urban lore. This is the first production of the play since it premiered in 2002 at Castellanos' home company of Campo Santo/ Intersection for the Arts. The play contains mature subject matter.
When: Thursday, Friday, Saturday, April 24, 25, and 26 at 8 p.m. and Sunday, April 27 at 2 p.m. A post-show discussion with cast and guests from the Campo Santo Theatre Company will follow the April 26 performance.
Where: LeFevre Theatre, Saint Mary's College of California, 1928 St. Mary's Rd., Moraga
