PlayGround Night at Whale's Wake Co-Production

Sunday, April 17, 7pm (full run is Apr 15-May 7)
The Flight Deck, 1540 Broadway, Oakland, CA
Tickets: $25-$35

Join the PlayGround community on Sunday, April 17 at 7pm for a special “PlayGround Night” performance of WHALE’S WAKE, a new play written and directed by Amy Sass and produced by Ragged Wing Ensemble in association with PlayGround (an Equity-approved project). Originally commissioned by PlayGround, the world premiere production features a cast of six, including PlayGround Company Members David Cramer and Anne Darragh. In Whale’s Wake, dad is dead, Emma is home, and now there’s a whale. A clan’s grief for its lost patriarch surreally bends the rules of society and the laws of nature. As the family struggles with economic ruin, the ocean seems to share their devastation. Long estranged, sharing only haphazard traditions, they contend over how to honor the difficult dead, an auction gone horribly wrong, a disappearing casket of ashes, a house that won’t stay put, and a suicidal whale. Funny, sexy, incantatory. The play runs April 15-May 7 at The Flight Deck, 1540 Broadway, in Oakland. ALL TICKETS WILL BE HELD AT WILL-CALL.

April 17 @ 7PM
