In 2009, Sleepwalkers Theatre was named the Best Theatre Company by SF Weekly. We were so very honored but took that as a challenge to continue to grow. In 2010, we did just that by premiering not just one play, but a trilogy about the end of the world by a local and talented playwright, JC Lee.
In late 2010, we premiered THIS WORLD IS GOOD which explored the beginning of the end and are now, with INTO THE CLEAR BLUE SKY, set to tackle the most ambitious project in the trilogy and in our history as a company. We are charged with not only visually and conceptually, but emotionally creating a world that is not pre or post apocalyptic, but apocalyptic.
The world in INTO THE CLEAR BLUE SKY is literally raging and decaying around its characters. Kale and Mika live in an apocalyptic New Jersey and the world has begun to melt and run out into the universe. Fleeing to the moon, in a desperate attempt to solve the mystery of her blackened hands, Mika's is a journey not only to forgiveness but to the end of the world. We need your help to give life to this truly imaginative and daring piece of theatre and ask your support as we continue to grow and push ourselves beyond the limits of all our imaginations.
We at Sleepwalkers Theatre have consistently sought to produce work that challenges not only us as artists but you, the audience. We hope you join us by contributing to the most ambitious project we have taken on yet and, as always, in our pursuit of the next great American play.
