The San Francisco Playhouse (Bill English, Artistic Director; Susi Damilano, Producing Director) launches the third season of their Sandbox Series with the world premiere, Inevitable by JorDan Puckett, Literary Manager of the San Francisco Playhouse.
What would you do if you could stop time? In Evelyn's desperate attempt to make sense of her life she grasps at the impossible: halting the inevitable ticking clock. But the cost of this seeming impossibility may be destroying the family she has worked a lifetime to create. Fantasy and memory collide in this family drama that examines questions central to the human experience. What does it mean to die? And when you do, what is the legacy that you want to leave behind?
The cast includes Keith Burkland*, Molly Noble* and Carlye Pollack.
The show previews February 27-March 1 at 8pm, opens March 2 at 8pm, and runs through March 23, playing Thursday, Friday & Saturday 8pm. All performances take place at 533 Sutter Street: Un-Scripted Theatre.

The mission of The Sandbox Series is to establish a creative environment for new and established playwrights to take their works to the next level from the page. In keeping with San Francisco Playhouse overall vision, the Sandbox Series is their component to promote new works utilizing top-notch directors and actors. With limited design elements and nominal advertising, the costs and risk of each production is minimal. With this reduced risk, San Francisco Playhouse strives to bridge the gap between "readings" and "main stage" productions, to provide increased exposure to the new voices in American Theater.
