Dogs and Coyotes, Baseballs and Rabbits
Bernal Youth Theater’s historical fiction
What do you do as an eleven year old when all you want is to work enough to feed yourself and your grandma, but a land-jobber’s out to grade your family garden into a bungalow for San Francisco mayor Sunny Jim Rolph? Come find out at this year’s Bernal Youth Theater production, “Dogs and Coyotes, Baseballs and Rabbits.” Should the kids unionize, inspired by the 1901 San Francisco longshoremen’s and teamsters’ strike? Should they burn and pillage, inspired by the 1906 earthquake? What’s a working-class kid to do when the bank’s got an acquisitive hold of your mortgage note?
Bernal Youth Theater’s historical fiction is thick with true stories of San Francisco labor politics of 100 years ago. For more information visit
