ONE SIP CAN CHANGE YOUR LIFE FOREVER.

“THE HAZE”

A NEW SOLO PLAY BY HEATHER MARLOWE 

DIRECTED BY JEAN-MICHELE GREGORY




LAUNCHES IN SAN FRANCISCO
AT A.C.T.’S NEW COSTUME SHOP THEATER
(1117 MARKET STREET, SAN FRANCISCO, CA 94102)




LIMITED 4-WEEK ENGAGEMENT

SEPTEMBER 4 – 27




 THE HAZE, a provocative new solo show by writer and performer Heather Marlowe will receive twelve performances over the month of September at the new Costume Shop theater at American Conservatory Theater.

An enthralling, sharp-witted, and autobiographical story about the aftermath of being drugged and raped while attending San Francisco’s annual Bay to Breakers event, Marlowe’s piece has already generated local and national attention for the issues it raises about how rape cases are handled even in enlightened cities like San Francisco. The play comes at a moment when Congress is expected to approve funding to examine untested DNA evidence from rape kits held by state and local police departments across the country.

Directed by Berkeley Rep regular Jean-Michele Gregory (The Agony and the Ecstasy of Steve Jobs, The Last Cargo Cult, 21 Dog Years),The Haze spotlights the absurdity of our current systems for dealing with the crime of rape. Says director Gregory, “While this story is sadly all too common, Heather Marlowe is not: Thanks to her talent and wit, she’s able to get past the grief to shine a light into our silence around rape on a personal, social, and political level. Her story is daring and astonishing—and frequently funny, because part of Marlowe’s gift is her ability to find the absurd and the beautiful in the midst of the banal and the horrible.”




The Haze will be presented EVERY Thursday at 7pm and Fridays and Saturday at 8pm in September. Dates: September 4, 5, 6, 11, 12, 13, 18, 19, 20, 25, 26, 27. Tickets are $20 (CASH ONLY at door). Pay what you can night is Thursday, September 18. The Costume Shop at ACT is located at 1117 Market Street, 94102.Tickets: http://bit.ly/thehazeplayACT
