OVERNIGHT extended to April 29: added performances Sunday 4/23, Friday 4/28, and Saturday 4/29

What if a huge tower sprang up on your block, literally overnight? 

In partnership with Gritty City Repertory Youth Theatre, The Lower Bottom Playaz, Theatre Aluminous & Kev Choice, Ragged Wing Ensemble presents OVERNIGHT.

Organized into three acts, one each by Ragged Wing, Theatre Aluminous and Lower Bottom Playaz, and joined together with material by Gritty City Rep, OVERNIGHT draws inspiration from the dramatic changes occurring in downtown Oakland.

Each act of OVERNIGHT follows a different set of characters responding to a single event: the overnight transformation of a parking lot into a high-rise.

OVERNIGHT creative team: Kieran Beccia (Board Op), Kev Choice (Composer), Ella Cooley (Sound), Regina Evans (Costumes), Andy Falkner (Props), Lilli Fore (Sets), Michael French (Director), Akaina Ghosh (Production Manager), Lindsay Krumbein (Choreographer), Marc-Éddy Loriston (Projections), Kenitra Love (Assistant Stage Manager), Serena Morelli (Photography), Ayodele Nzinga (Writer/Director), Marisa Ramos (Assistant Stage Manager), Jean-Francois Revon (Production Design Head), Amy Sass (Dramaturg), Anna Shneiderman (Creative Producer), Keira Sullivan (Lighting), Sango Tajima (Writer), Jane Troja (Stage Manager), Addie Ulrey (Writer/Director)
