Urge for Going in San Francisco

16 Nov

I’m very pleased! URGE FOR GOING is making its West Coast premiere, starting now. Like, tonight. (Notice the use of “like.” I am after all still a California girl at heart.) Tonight! Evren Odcikin directs. You should know Evren: He’s super smart, intuitive, and brings to this play all that informs his own story. Here’s Evren after our first preview, doing notes, looking very calm, on a set designed by Kate Boyd that very much captures the look and feel of a refugee camp dwelling.


Many thanks to Torange Yeghiazarian, the artistic director of Golden Thread, who championed this play years ago, and who basically has been doing this sort of thing for almost twenty years!

Here is a production pic of the cast: Camilla Betancourt Ascensio, Terry Lamb, and Tara Blau. Lights and set by Kate Boyd. Costumes by Michelle Mulholland.


If you are in or near the Bay Area, please feel free to spread the word. Many shukrans, Mona

    Mona, that’s such exciting news! I wish I were in or even near SF: I would love to see the play. But it’s great to hear that the play is going to have a new audience. Congratulations! Best, Nina
