Just Completed:  Our Docktown play

“The Unfinished Story of Docktown”

Fuse Theatre is working in collaboration with the Redwood City Docktown Community to create an original devised play about the stories of this endangered community.  The project began in April 2017.  Using many techniques from the Cornerstone Training, Fuse will facilitate community Story Circles as a foundation for the play. 

Thanks to everyone who persevered the rain (Thursday) and the cold (Friday & Saturday) to see our play.  And thanks to the Docktown Community that helped develop this play and welcomed us as family.  Our hope is that this might have helped increase awareness of their plight along with so many others who are losing their homes to big developers.
