Theatre: Death of A Player

Posted in Artsy Fartsy by yoshi on September 11, 2011


Pinays Maintaining Sisterhood Through Art (PMSTA) and Bindlestiff Studio have joined forces to present “Death of a Player,” a production that brings their audience into the life phases of womanhood and “pushes the idea that in living life to the fullest, one must die to fully live.”

With a live band incorporating music we all can listen and relate to – from hip-hop to show-tunes, the production includes interesting, twisted stories of mail-order-brides, a murder mystery of a cheating lover, a look at dying early, and more.

WHEN: October 13-16, 20-22 and 27-29 Thursdays through Saturdays, 800PM Matinees (October 15-16, 22, and 29), 200PM

WHERE: Bindlestiff Studio 185 Sixth Street, San Francisco, CA 94103
