Photo Flash: First Look At YOGA PLAY At San Francisco Playhouse
San Francisco Playhouse presents Dipika Guha's Yoga Play. This will be its second production following the world premiere during South Coast Rep's Pacific Playwrights Festival. Bill English directs.
At the top of their game, yoga apparel giant Jojomon is hit with a terrible scandal that sends them into freefall. Desperate to recover their earnings and reputation, newly hired CEO Joan stakes everything on an unlikely plan. Yoga Play is a comedic journey towards enlightenment in a world determined to sell it.
"We couldn't be more excited to be producing another work by Ms. Guha, one of theatre's most promising playwrights," said Bill English. "Yoga Play has such a sharp and funny script-with themes that mirror real-life events-and is an incisive look at corporate America." The Playhouse previously produced Guha's In Braunau and The Rules in their Sandbox Series of World Premieres.
The cast includes Bobak Cyrus Bakhtiari*, Susi Damilano*, Ayelet Firstenberg*, Craig Marker*, and Ryan Morales.
