Thrust Stage, 2025 Addison Street, Berkeley

Berkeley Rep proudly presents the world premiere of a new play commissioned from an Oakland native: The House that will not Stand, by Marcus Gardley, captures a single, steamy day for seven women in New Orleans. In 1836, white men in that city often live openly with their black Creole lovers. Yet wealth and freedom may not protect Beartrice when her man mysteriously dies… or conceal old secrets when another handsome bachelor calls on her daughters. Directed by Patricia McGregor, The House that will not Stand is gripping family drama — sensuous, humorous, uplifting, heartbreaking — told in a rich and lyrical river of words.

Troy Maxson, one of the greatest characters of American theater, has stepped up to the plate too many times in his life only to go down swinging. Shut out of the big leagues by prejudice, the former Negro League homerun king is now a garbage collector just trying to make a living and do right by his family. When his youngest son shows promise on the high school football team, Troy must come to terms with his past disappointments or risk tearing his family apart.

Marin Theatre Company's Fences feature's Carl Lumbly (Southland, Alias, Cagney and Lacey) as Troy Maxson, Bay Area favorite, actor/director Margo Hall as his wife, Rose, and our own Artistic Director, Steven Anthony Jones as Troy's best friend, Jim Bono.

When a husband catches his wife in the arms of her lover, the lover flees — but leaves his suit behind. As her penance, the husband makes his wife “treat the suit as an honored guest,” accompanying her wherever she goes, the suit becomes a whimsical yet cruel reminder of her infidelity. African melodies interweave with jazz standards to underscore this simple yet surprising tale, set in Apartheid-era Johannesburg, in a haunting production that integrates virtuosic musicians directly into the action.
