Anton’s Well Theater Company is proud to announce our next production: the Bay Area Premiere of Tender Napalm by Philip Ridley, directed by Robert Estes, choreographed by Bridgette Loriaux, playing Oakland’s Temescal Arts Center from July 14-August 5.
The New York Times calls Tender Napalm a “fierce, transfixing and ultimately very moving play” written by “a writer of daring and satanic imagination, with a sui generis vocabulary to match.” The play is filled with language of graphic violence and shocking imagery, so please note that it may not be for everyone, but in its own way, Tender Napalm is beautiful, and ultimately, perhaps even romantic.
The play centers on two people: WOMAN and MAN, as they use their ripe imaginations in a story-telling battle for love. The play’s kaleidoscopic, emotional journey will feature intense movement choreographed by Bridgette Loriaux. The combination of brilliant writing and expressive movement promises to make Tender Napalm a thrilling theatrical event.
Performances on Friday and Saturdays, 8PM, from Friday, July 14 to Saturday, August 5 at the Temescal Arts Center, 511 48th Street, Oakland, 94609. Buy Tickets.
