'Caroline,' 'Fetes,' 'Jonestown' up for discussion
Playwrights Tony Kushner and Charles L. Mee are among participants scheduled for Berkeley Rep’s “Page to Stage,” a free series of conversations with top theater artists.
On Jan. 14, Kushner joins Berkeley Rep artistic director Tony Taccone to discuss Kushner’s “Caroline, or Change,” which opens Jan. 18 at the theater.
On Jan. 24, Mee and director Les Waters, who won Obie Awards for their work on Mee’s “Big Love,” talk about their latest collaboration, the world preem of “Fetes de la Nuit,” opening in the Roda Theater on Feb. 2.
And on May 2, writer-director Leigh Fondakowski discusses the world preem of her “Stories From Jonestown and the Peoples Temple,” which opens at Berkeley Rep April 20. Fondakowski was a collaborator on “The Laramie Project,” which had its West Coast bow at the venue in 2001.
No tickets are necessary for the free events, but seating is limited. Each talk starts at 7 p.m.; doors open at 6:45 for general-admission seating. Some seats for the Kushner event may be reserved by Berkeley Rep subscribers only; contact the box office.
