100 Larkin Street
San Francisco, CA
|Organizer/Author||Tommi 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.
