Set in the Berkeley hills after a major fire, Jane Anderson’s 2007 play introduces us to Jeannette, an earthy, high-spirited woman whose husband, Neil, is dying of cancer. When her cousin Dinah from Ohio comes for a visit with her husband, Bill, the two couples — one solidly on the left, the other resolute in their conservative Christian beliefs — are made to confront their huge dissimilarities.
About Ubu’s Other Shoe & Staged Readings
A staged reading is a form of theatre without sets or full costumes and props. The actors read from scripts, sometimes using music stands. They may be seated, stand in fixed positions, or incorporate minimal stage movement.
SLO REP’s staged reading series is named after the infamous trilogy of plays written by Alfred Jarry (Ubu Roi) that were banned from the stage after riots erupted on opening night. Ubu’s Other Shoe pays homage to the spirit of Jarry and to all artists who strive to explore the fringes of their art. This exciting series exists to offer actors, directors and audience members an opportunity to experience incredible plays that do not necessarily fit into our regular main stage season. Thank you for taking this journey with us.
