We are excited to announce Springboard Series 2017, new works comprised of short plays, excerpts and monologues created by local playwrights responding to Jump’s mission of telling authentic stories of mental illness from a variety of perspectives.

This year’s series incudes monologues on love, obsession and music by Diana Slampyak, Suzanne Gamble and Jeanne Lupton; short works by Ashley Smiley and Gaetana Caldwell-Smith on migraines and motherhood, and a staged reading of “No Believers” by playwright and director Roberta D’Alois. “No Believers” follows a young priest and a childhood friend as they discover the voices they have been hearing may be genuine calls to action.

Jump!‘s Springboard Series has developed plays that have gone on to win the Heidemann Award from the Actors Theatre of Louisville, garnered several New York productions, and have won several other awards including CASH grants from Theatre Bay Area.

Dates: March 17 and 18, 2017 at 8 PM (short pieces)

March 19, 2017 at 2 PM (play reading)

All performances at ACT ‘s Costume Shop
1117 Market Street

San Francisco CA 94103

Springboard Series 2017 is part of ACT’s Space Sharing Initiative.

Stay tuned for ticket info!
