Hidden corners of Stone Brewing’s Liberty Station Bistro & Gardens serve as the setting for five new 10-minute plays. Audiences will travel to five locations and witness stories that were inspired there and penned by Playhouse-commissioned playwrights Mashuq Deen, Shairi Engle, Frank Katasse (They Don’t Talk Back, presented by Native Voices during their Playhouse residency), Daria Miyeko Marinelli and Marisela Orta.
Backyard Renaissance Theatre Company
presents theatre with an “art to the gut” sensibility and believes that exceptional storytelling is rooted in a sense of joyful play, human connection, and gutsy intensity. The company was founded in 2015 by artistic director Francis Gercke and executive director Jessica John Gercke. With the addition of producing director Anthony Methvin, the company has produced nine productions including the San Diego Premiere of Parlour Song by Jezz Butterworth, The Elephant Man by Bernard Pomerance, the San Diego Premiere of Gutenberg: The Musical by Scott Brown and Anthony King, Abundance by Beth Henley, the San Diego Premiere of Bachelorette by Leslye Headland, The Zoo Story by Edward Albee, Mr. & Mrs. Fitch by Douglas Carter Beane and the world premiere of Tarrytown by Adam Wachter, which was named Best Original Musical by the San Diego Critics Circle in 2017. Backyard Renaissance also presented the San Diego premiere of Noah Haidle’s Smokefall and Shelagh Stephenson’s An Experiment with an Air Pump as La Jolla Playhouse 2018/2019 Theatre in Residence.
