A New SF Theater Company

slt.pngTheater Dogs has highlighted a new Bay Area theater company that sounds pretty cool, called Sleepwalkers Theatre. Things that I find intriguing about them:

  • Their first production had cheap tickets and lots of beer; always a winner for me.
  • Their upcoming play is about a rising competitive eating star whose girlfriend leaves him after going vegan and features a guy eating hot dogs really, really fast.
  • Their next-next play takes place at 3AM in the keno lounge of Circus Circus. That’s the Reno Circus Circus, two steps seedier than the shitty Vegas Circus Circus.
  • The company was “born from the ashes of the worst production of Hamlet ever.”
  • Their mission is to “encourage people to work on new plays.”
  • The founders look a bit like Garth Hudson and Robbie Robertson from The Band, circa 1968.


Their next play, Deep Fried Cheese is gonna be at the Climate Theater in August; I’m definitely gonna check it out.
