Organizer/AuthorTommi Avicolli Mecca
A reading of an original musical about the San Francisco housing crisis written by Alison C. Wright and Tommi Avicolli Mecca with a live band playing the songs.

Story: a group of tenants in a typical building somewhere in San Francisco receive an Ellis Act eviction notice and decide to fight, pitting themselves against a flip-happy, out-of-town speculator without scruples (is there any other kind?) who will do anything to turn a hefty profit at their expense. It's a tour-de-force of the housing crisis with a heavy dose of satire and a soundtrack that will delight.

Featuring (in alphabetical order): Kevin Caufield, Ron Cordova, Gigi Gamble, Richard May and Carmen White. Musicians: Chandra Xian Redack, Ken Schoon and Tommi Avicolli Mecca.

Directed by Alison C. Wright.

Reading is free. Library is accessible. Performance starts at 2pm sharp.

Thanks to the Waller Center for its continued support.
