THE WRONG KIND OF PESSIMISSM Tackles Big Questions Of Progress, Faith, And More At The Marsh SFTHE WRONG KIND OF PESSIMISSM Tackles Big Questions Of Progress, Faith, And More At The Marsh SF
by BWW News Desk - Mar 18, 2019

This April, The Marsh San Francisco brings Paul Sussman's The Wrong Kind of Pessimism to The Marsh Discovery Series, a showcase for works under development.

From the first gentrification (sorry, Neanderthals) to the secrets of the genome, Sussman takes on (and smacks down) the big questions of progress, faith, and where it all ends in The Wrong Kind of Pessimism. Directed by Kenny Yun, The Wrong Kind of Pessimism will be presented April 27 -May 18, 2019 with performances at 5:00pm Saturdays at The Marsh San Francisco, 1062 Valencia St., San Francisco.
