Rex Grantee Stagebridge Premieres ‘FSM’

Share

FSM posterRex grantee Stagebridge announces the premiere of FSM: A Play With Music About a Moment That Changed America, which explores the 1964 Free Speech Movement at UC Berkeley, as lived then and seen now by participants on all sides, just in time for its 50th anniversary.

FSM takes ’60s politics seriously.  It celebrates the joy, moral purpose, newborn freedom and occasional absurdity of being young, part of a movement and passionately political, from a distance that takes account of the consequences.

Performances take place September 21-22 at Brava Theater Center in San Francisco, and September 27-28 at Berkeley Repertory Theatre. Get details and tickets here.
