Never The Sinner @ EXIT Theatre & Duke Theatre
Mar 6 @ 8:00 pm – 10:00 pm

Black Ice Theatre Co. & No Nude Men present in association with the Exit Theatre the traveling production of… N E V E R T H E S I N N E R by John Logan Based on a real event which shocked America in 1924, the play tells how two privileged young men Nathan Leopold and Richard Loeb murdered a 14-year-old boy for no other reason than to prove they were superior beings above the law. They were not. Arrested, they came to trial in Chicago, charged with murder. As their trial unfolds, it becomes the setting for an argument over the death penalty. The State wants the two young men hanged. Defending them is the renowned lawyer Clarence Darrow. Calling on the judge to take account of the two mens mental state, he argues that hanging them would be a crime itself: that it is reasonable to hate the sin, but never the sinner. This truly gripping account of the historic trial suggests that, given twists of fate and character, Leopold or Loeb could be anyone who has loved too much, had a broken heart, wanted to prove everlasting devotion, or looked at a loved one and thought, I’d die for you, I’d kill for you. This is a love story set to themes of crime and punishment, the press, the times, humanism, Nietzsche’s philosophy, and the end of the jazz age. Directed by Stuart Bousel Starring Sam Bertken, Briana Biller, Andrew Calabrese, Tom Callahan, Fred Pitts and Richard S. Sargent & Nick Trengove SAN FRANCISCO DATES: March 6, 7, 8, 12, 13, 14 at the Exit Theatre (156 Eddy Street, San Francisco) All shows 8pm except March 8th at 2:00pm SOUTH LAKE TAHOE DATES: March 20, 21, 22, 26, 27, 28 at the Duke Theatre (1 College Dr, South Lake Tahoe) All shows 7:30pm except March 22 at 2:30pm Tickets: $15-$18 in advance, $20 at the door For tickets: https://neverthesinner.brownpapertickets.com ***PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU BUY TICKETS FOR THE CORRECT LOCATION/DATE.

Three years later, a no longer idealistic Kelly is the crippled survivor of a brutal attack, and Tracy never returned from the ill-fated mission of mercy. One rainy day in Los Angeles, Tracy’s mother Elizabeth shows up unexpectedly at Kelly’s apartment. This is their first meeting. Slowly, the two women dance through their grief, while negotiating the truth of what brought the two young women together, why they undertook their dangerous humanitarian mission, and what happened on that final day. ______________________________________________________ “The Pillowman” by Martin McDonagh Duke Theatre October 24, 25, 26, 27, 31, November 1, 2, 3 All performances are 7:30pm except Nov 3 at 2:30pm In an interrogation room in an unnamed totalitarian dictatorship, Katurian Katurian, a writer, is being interrogated by two detectives. Next door, Katurians mentally disabled brother waits. The detectives want to know why Katurians stories feature gruesome plots about child murder and torture, and in particular, why they seem to mirror a string of recent child murders in the area. This brutal dark comedy from Martin McDonagh, the master of the horror-comedy, poses unanswerable questions: Can stories hold the power to cause atrocities? Where is the line between truth and fairy tale? Is a life of horror worth living at all? Drawing on inspiration as diverse as Grimms Fairy Tales, Kafka, and Antonin Artaud, The Pillowman is a dark, twisty, and utterly unforgettable masterpiece from one of Irelands most treasured writers. ______________________________________________________ “Never the Sinner” by John Logan In association with the Exit Theatre Exit Theatre, SF and Duke Theatre, Tahoe March 6, 7, 8, 12, 13, 14 at the Exit Theatre in SF. All shows 8pm except March 8 at 3pm March 19, 20, 21, 22, 26, 27, 28 at the Duke Theatre in South Lake Tahoe All shows 7:30pm except March 22 at 2:30pm Chicago, May 21, 1924. Nathan Leopold Jr., age eighteen, and Robert Loeb, age nineteen, killed fourteen-year-old Bobby Franks. They were quickly apprehended when Leopolds glasses were found near the corpse. Clarence Darrow defended them, pleading eloquently against capital punishment. Why would wealthy young men murder an innocent boy? What demons lurked behind Loebs flashing good looks? Behind Leopolds saturnine intellect? This exquisite Off-Broadway hit explores the complex relationship between these two who longed to create a private world of fevered intellect and romantic passion. The author suggests that, given twists of fate and character, Leopold or Loeb could be anyone who has loved too much, had a broken heart, wanted to prove everlasting devotion, or looked at a loved one and thought, Id die for youId kill for you. This is a love story set to themes of crime and punishment, the press, the times, humanism, Nietzsches philosophy, and the end of the jazz age. ______________________________________________________ “La Cage Aux Folles” by Jerry Herman and Harvey Fierstein Duke Theatre June 12, 13, 14, 18, 19, 20, 21 All shows 7:30pm except June 21 at 2:00pm Georges is the owner of the La Cage Aux Folles nightclub, which features a drag show starring his partner and the love of his life, Albin. After twenty years of un-wedded bliss, Georges and his partner Albin face the hardest challenge of their relationship yet: meeting their sons fiances parents. Albin has always raised Jean-Michel, Georges biological son, as his own. But when Jean-Michel falls in love and becomes engaged to the daughter of an ultra-conservative, anti-gay politician, Georges feels compelled to try to present a more traditional family to Jean-Michels potential in-laws. When Albin tries and fails to take on a masculine persona in the role of Uncle Al, he gets more creative in order to find a way to be part of the meet the parents experience. Based on the 1973 French play of the same name, the multi-Tony award-winning La Cage Aux Folles is a musical filled with delightful spectacle and great heart that couldnt be timelier.
