Premiere of “The Unfinished Story of Docktown”, an original devised play by Fuse Theatre in collaboration with the Docktown community on October 19th.
Fuse Theatre is excited to announce the premiere of a new play based on the experiences of the Docktown residents and the five year battle to save their unique waterborne homes from eviction. The cast is comprised of professional actors and members of the community.
Fuse Theatre worked with members of the Docktown Community to create a new play that will allows members to tell their own story. The play will not merely reflect its current legal predicament, but its long history and, we hope, the spirit of its residents. In the story of Docktown, several compelling themes overlap with one another to reflect the complex web of factors that manifest in the Bay Area and beyond as ‘the housing crisis’. The unrelenting rise of property values in Redwood City combined with the economic pressures being placed on this small community, whose occupants live aboard floating homes, threatens to dismantle the way of life enjoyed there for the last fifty years.
This play is supported in part through a CA$H grant awarded by Theatre Bay Area.
October 19, 20 & 21 @ 8pm
Peninsula Yacht Club, 1536 Maple St., Redwood City, CA
