Bread & Butter Theatre Company Presents Rajiv Joseph's THE NORTH POOL
In The North Pool, a high-school vice principal and a Middle Eastern-born transfer student engage in a politically and emotionally charged game of cat and mouse, with dangerous consequences.
Lana Palmer directs this tightly crafted play at the 99-seat Potrero Stage, featuring Bruce Avery as high school vice principal Dr. Danielson and Zaya Kolia as Khadim, a Middle Eastern-born transfer student.
The North Pool was awarded the Edgerton New American Play award and the Glickman Award for Best Bay Area World Premiere in its original staging at TheatreWorks in 2011.
The North Pool runs January 10 - 19, 2019. Opening Night is January 11, 2019 at 8pm. Tickets are $10-$40 and available at www.breadandbuttertheatre.com.
