Sept.14–Oct. 7: The fall theater season is full of timely world premieres, like A Tale of Autumn, by Bay Area native Christopher Chen. He says this play is inspired by both Shakespeare and TV series like Game of Thrones and House of Cards — a tale of corporate succession at a seemingly idealistic company. Chen is an innovative playwright whose previous efforts have challenged our theatrical expectations, even as he tells compelling stories that keep us guessing about the outcome until the curtain falls. His play is in good hands here with Crowded Fire artistic director Mina Morita. Details here.
