"FABULOUS ACTING, INTIMATE SETTING, 
DOWN HOME HOSPITALITY"


4.5 OUT OF 5 STARS

     -SF GATE
















An evening of staged reading of new works 
about Independence and Freedom 
with just a little taste-of-the-South.
  
We are proud to present staged readings of new short plays
 from some of our favorite fellow theatre companies with representatives from 
Wily West, Expressions Productions, 
Pacifica Table Readers, Playwrights Center of San Francisco, 
Pear Avenue Writers Guild!

We've got thwarted love (is there any other kind?), 
those awful machines at the airport, conspiracies, 
book clubs, fireworks, and of course mid-life crisis, 
something just a little French....it is Bastille Day, after all!

Southern Railroad Theatre Company
returns this December with the World Premiere
of Susan Jackson's new holiday play



It's just six weeks till Christmas and
the presentation of the annual Beaver Dam living nativity.
Usually the role of the Blessed Virgin Mary
goes to the Pastor's daughter but she's run off to California!

Now, the much coveted role is up for grabs
and for Peaches Nasterson, Amanda Haley Lynn Hollister,
and Crazy Lacy---the competition is fierce.

Join Peaches, Nandy, Lacy, Salacious Peterman,
Billy Barnett Wilmington the Third, and The Tulita,
as they face the challenges at hand.

Choices must be made: 
Who will be the Virgin Mary?
Who will be the Baby Jesus? And will the fly metaphors
be enough to secure life-long friendships?


The Company:

Diana Brown, Robert Cooper, 
Susan Jackson, Adrienne Krug,
Stacy Marshall, Eric Nelson,
Margo Sims and
Ann Thomas

December 5, 6, 7, 12, 13,14
