Blue & Gold Fleet’s Escape From the Rock Cruise is an exciting 90-minute excursion that takes you around the perimeter of Alcatraz to view the island from every angle. As the ship sails, passengers are treated to a presentation complete with sound effects and chilling tales of inmates Al Capone and Billy Cook, not to mention Clyde Johnson’s daring escape attempt.

For a relaxing afternoon on the water, hop aboard the Privateer, a truly traditional sailboat, for a semi-private 90-minute cruise of the bay, complete with included beer and wine. This double-masted, teak-decked, bronze-fitted beauty holds no more than 28 passengers, so you’ll get plenty of personal attention from the skilled and friendly crew as the Privateer glides over to Alcatraz and Angel Island, passes by charming and picturesque Sausalito, parallels the magnificent Golden Gate Bridge and sails past the famous San Francisco skyline on its way back to the pier.

Buy Tickets $12.50 - $27.50 $25 - $55

The creators of the smash hit Antigona, which received the San Francisco Chronicle’s highest rating, return to the Z Space with another stunning production. Entre Tú Y Yo explores through vivid flamenco, the possibilities and constraints imposed by relationships. Legendary dancer Soledad Barrio once again stars, joined by some of Spain’s most celebrated flamenco artists and musicians in this program of duets, solos, and ensemble works. The New York Times has described Soledad Barrio “A force of nature… I can think of no current ballet star as marvelous as she.” The San Francisco Chronicle called Antigona, their previous production, Powerful. Potent and richly imagined, with the fearless and transfixing Soledad Barrio in the title role. Pulse-poundingly effective. Remarkable.” This new production, a treat for those who loved Antigona and those who missed it, has been described by the Financial Times as “Authentic. Gorgeously ornamented yet propulsive melodies. Tremendous.”

Think you know the Middle East? Think again! ReOrient 2019 will celebrate the 20th anniversary of this innovative and ambitious festival of short plays from or about the Middle East. Golden Thread’s most recognized program and a mecca for innovative, spirited, and thought-provoking theatre, ReOrient welcomes artists who challenge the dominant depictions of the Middle East and audiences who seek unconventional and provocative programming. The line-up includes playwrights with longtime association with Golden Thread: Egyptian-American playwright Yussef El Guindi, Bay Area-based Palestinian-American playwright Betty Shamieh, and MacArthur Fellow and celebrated playwright Naomi Wallace. Joining these writers are four newcomers to the festival: Iraqi-British writer and actor Rendah Heywood, Noor Theatre Founding Artistic Director Lameece Issaq, Turkish-Kurdish writer and filmmaker Mustafa Kaymak, and local Iranian-American writer Niku Sharei. Selected from 108 submissions from 13 countries, the seven short plays are diverse in content and style, highlighting the multiplicity of Middle Eastern perspectives and identities.

Let’s turn these conversation-killers (pun intended) into conversation-starters and put this taboo to death. Comedy has always made it easier to talk about the things that we’re uncomfortable with.

Singles Party: Mix, Meet & Mingle

Buy Tickets $5 $10

“All the men are either married, gay, or dead” has often been the complaint of San Francisco’s single women. Not at tonight’s party, which is based on a singles organization decades ago in SF called “Single, Straight, & Breathing.” Once a week the women would host a party in The City at one of their homes. The catch was that each woman would have to bring 2 men who were “single, straight, and breathing” in order to be welcome. Eventually the group was disbanded because all the women found a man! After several decades, we resurrect this concept at tonight’s party. While women are welcome to come unaccompanied, it would be great if each woman brought along at least one bachelor with whom she is NOT romantically involved (brother, father, son, cousin, co-worker, next-door neighbor, ex-husband, etc.) Dress to impress. This location, Coin-Op, used to be the large Drake Nightclub. We have room for a big crowd, so please invite as many singles as possible! Conveniently located near BART, CalTrain, and MUNI. Free street parking in SF on Sundays! PLEASE NOTE: This is an inclusive party, so adults of all ages, all ethnic groups, and all orientations are welcome. CO-SPONSORED by The Society of Single Professionals, the world’s largest non-profit singles organization; and many other singles organizations and meetups. This is a fundraiser for The Seva Foundation, www.seva.org, to restore sight to the blind. Every $50 we raise at the party finances a cataract surgery for one blind person in one of the poor countries of Asia or Africa! MORE SINGLES PARTIES at www.thepartyhotline.com.

Poet Saeed Jones, author of the celebrated Prelude to Bruise, joins us to read from his new memoir, How We Fight for Our Lives, an unforgettable coming-of-age story of a bookish, black, gay teen from Texas as he learns to see himself and his dreams – and learns how his world sees him. Blending poetry and prose, Jones draws readers into his boyhood and adolescence – into tumultuous relationships with his mother and grandmother, into passing flings with lovers, friends and strangers. Each piece builds into a larger examination of race and queerness, power and vulnerability, love and grief: a portrait of what we all do for one another – and to one another – as we fight to become ourselves. Jones will be in conversation with Marvin K. White, MDiv, who is currently serving as the Interim Minister of Celebration at GLIDE Church in San Francisco. Saeed Jones is the author of Prelude to Bruise, winner of the 2015 PEN/Joyce Osterweil Award for Poetry and the 2015 Stonewall Book Award/Barbara Gittings Literature Award. The poetry collection was also a finalist for the 2015 National Book Critics Circle Award, as well as awards from Lambda Literary and the Publishing Triangle in 2015. Jones is a cohost of BuzzFeed’s morning show, AM to DM, and previously served as BuzzFeed’s LGBT editor and Culture editor. Jones was born in Memphis, Tennessee, and grew up in Lewisville, Texas. He earned a BA at Western Kentucky University and an MFA at Rutgers University-Newark.

There is inspiration all around us. Sergio left Nicaragua in the 1980s, arrived in Los Angeles, then moved to San Francisco when he was 14 and has been here since. A local boot-camp and cycling instructor and small business owner (healthy foods, cold press juices and green smoothies), Sergio is focused and determined on becoming a great stand up comic. A proud San Franciscan, business owner and fitness instructor by day, and stand up comic by night. Sergio is energetic and is constantly smiling. His edgy comedic style will shock you and make you laugh at the same time. No topic is too taboo for this rabble rouser. If it makes you squirm in your seat, he’s going to talk about it.

BATS players create stories in all different genres, time periods and starting from all kinds of different suggestions.

Each week we’ll have all new special guest storytellers joining us from The Moth and the Stanford Storytelling Project, standing up and sharing their own true personal narratives. We’ll take it from there, and create improvised scenes based on themes, settings and ideas in those stories. What better inspiration for improvised stories than the truth?
