What's Happening at Berkeley Rep: Culture Clash (Still) in America!

March 5, 2020 - 2:00pm-3:00pm (ended)

"What’s Happening at Berkeley Rep?" is an ongoing series of docent talks on current productions of the renowned Berkeley Repertory Theatre.  
At these talks you’ll hear about the playwright’s perspective, dive into the historical context, and discover why the script is relevant right now. The 45 minute presentation includes time for questions.

In March we’ll be discussing Culture Clash (Still) in America!

 

About the play:

The missionaries of mayhem are back with their unique, badass brand of Chicano satire! Born here in the Bay and Los Angeles-based, Culture Clash first brought their dangerous and subversive version of documentary theatre to Berkeley audiences with Culture Clash in AmeriCCa, gleefully skewering American culture through the lens of the Latino experience.

In this powerful, pointed, and downright hilarious update they turn their razor-sharp wit to everything from pussy hats to MAGA caps, laying down outrageous, biting, and thought-provoking monologues and sketch comedy about the immigrant experience in America right now.

 

The next talk in the series will be School Girls; Or, The African Mean Girls Play, by Jocelyn Bioh, on April 2.
