ESCURIAL by Michel de Ghelderode
This particular act is set with a contemporary flavor taking place in the catacombs of a monastery during the vestiges of the Spanish Inquisition.

Produced by special agreement with SAMUEL FRENCH, Inc.

Cracks in the Ceiling by Richard Sloniker (formerly titled THEN AGAIN)
When the state of Europe is coming to an end, a man looks within himself to question what is real and what is a tale. His discovery leads him to find that Time itself, hurtling toward them, brings them both to their knees. Written and performed by Richard Sloniker.

"I could be bound in a nutshell, and count myself a King of infinite space..." Hamlet, II, 2

January 8 to January 28

InterACT's On Golden Pond: Through the Hmong Window

Interactive Asian Contemporary Theatre continues its sixth season with an adaptation of Ernest Thompson's On Golden Pond. InterACT, known for telling the stories of the Asian community, continues to do so having adapted this play to represent a Hmong family.

After aiding the U.S. armed forces during the Vietnam War, the Hmong became targets of reprisals by the Vietnamese. They fled Laos to refugee camps along the Thai border, becoming a people without a country. The U.S. government arranged to have their allies relocated to the U.S. in Minnesota or California, with Sacramento being a major point of destination.

Director Dennis Yep felt it was important to include their history in the play, but not overemphasize it. He worked closely with members of the community to give it a unique Hmong feel, while still keeping the intent of the playwright intact.

On Golden Pond runs through January 28th, 2001. The theatre is located at 4010 El Camino Ave, Sacramento, with performances on Fridays & Saturdays at 8 pm, and Sunday matinees at 3 pm. Tickets are $12 general admission, $10 for seniors 62 or over and $ 10 for youth 13 and under. For reservations and information, call 452-6174.

by Frank Chin
January 31 to February 25, 2001

"We'come a Chinatown, Folks!" And welcome back to Fred Eng's Chinatown tours! In this, the Year of the Dragon, EWP Founding Artistic Director Mako directs this seminal play by the playwright many consider to be the godfather of Asian American theatre. This play caused an enormous uproar when it was first produced in 1974. It not only influenced a generation of APA writers, but it also had a profound impact on an entire generation of Asian Americans. "The language is frequently strong, and the bitterness, even when wrapped in some very funny comedy, is unrelenting."New York Times.

Read A Review of Can't Get Started @

THE NEGATIVE ENERGY FIELD---The ultimate anti-dance, anti-confessional performance piece. It's all around you--can you feel it? The Negative Energy Field helps you articulate the nagging feelings that skirt around the edges of the day with its doomed blend of conceptual performance, Internet stalking, angry manifestos, rock star posing and the ever-present threat of nuclear self-destruct! Featuring Masha Sapron as The Woman In A White Dress (a one-act play-within-the-play).

CAN'T GET STARTED.When you know more about King Crimson than what it's like to be with a woman. The fundamental hopelessness of making the male-female connection, as filtered through the skeptical prism of Tom X. Chao. This manifesto-laden, epoch-spanning 2-person play is enhanced with scenes of space pirates, ethnomusicology students, abstract geometric puppets, and stone-age stoners guaranteed to smash the preciousness of theater. Also starring Eve Kerrigan as Tom's female foil.

An Issei (first generation) woman who struggles to build a family business; a Nisei woman (2nd generation) who believes in community, and writes newsletters to keep people in touch; a teenage Nisei angry at being in an internment camp; and a Sansei (third generation) inexplicably drawn to buildings, who realizes through what hardship her grandparents and parents built their lives. Live music is provided by George Abe. Both funny and sad, With Darkness Behind Us, Daylight Has Come is a moving theatrical experience.
