Garson Kanin's Capitol Hill caper gets a welcome revival at the San Francisco Playhouse this season courtesy of director Susi Damilano.

The Effect

March 20 - April 28, 2018

After the success of her searing look at financial corruption in ENRON, Lucy Prebble returns with this twinkling and exceedingly intriguing exploration of our obsession with pharmaceuticals and how they define us. Following the love story of Connie and Tristan, two drugs trial volunteers hopped up on a new super anti-depressant, The Effect raises some big questions about what makes us who we are, and does chemically altering our emotions do more harm than good?

An Entomologist's Love Story

May 8 - June 23, 2018

The love life of the urban 30 something is under the microscope in this hilarious new play from Melissa Ross. An Entomologist's Love Story is a romantic comedy set in deep in the labs of the Museum of Natural History where scientists Betty and Jeff are trying to pin down the mating ritual of the bed bug. As time goes on, it seems like sharing a bed may not be the only thing we have in common with the little critters.
