World Premiere Of Lynne Kaufman's WHO KILLED SYLVIA PLATH Comes To The Marsh SF
March 21, 2019
The Marsh San Francisco presents the World Premiere of Who Killed Sylvia Plath, written by award-winning playwright Lynne Kaufman and starring Lorri Holt. Poet Sylvia Plath returns to her burial place in West Yorkshire, England to view the fourth replacement of her tombstone. The previous ones have been defaced by feminists who chiseled off her married name, claiming it was Ted Hughes who caused Sylvia Plath's death. Did Hughes kill Plath? Was her suicide at age 30 a "good career move"? Would she do it again? And what does it say to us today? (more...)
"Acid Test" is the true story of Ram Dass, renowned spiritual teacher and LSD pioneer. Presented by The Marsh San Francisco, the show explores Ram Dass’ many incarnations from being Richard Alpert, the scion of a wealthy Jewish family and a psychology professor at Harvard, to launching the psychedelic revolution along with Timothy Leary. Whether meeting his guru in India or suffering a paralyzing stroke, Ram Dass illuminates his search for inner peace and lasting truth with humor and humility. Written by prize-winning playwright Lynne Kaufman, featuring acclaimed actor Warren David Keith, and staged by veteran director Nancy Carlin, "Acid Test" explores Ram Dass’ journey from “be here now” to “still here” to “be love.”
