Central Works to Close Season with RECIPE, Opening 10/18Central Works to Close Season with RECIPE, Opening 10/18
by BWW News Desk - Sep 5, 2014

Central Works concludes the 2014 season with 'Recipe,' a profoundly funny new work by Michael Gene Sullivan, opening with a press Night on Saturday October 18 at 8 pm and running through November 23 at the historic Berkeley City Club.

How do you live your life knowing that all your fears may, actually, be true? (more...)
