Stories High XIII: The SoMa Edition

Stories High XIII: The SoMa Edition explores life in this dynamic, ever-evolving corner of the city from four distinct perspectives: 1) a Filipino youth from the neighborhood caught shoplifting at Marshalls; 2) a starving artist pushed out by encroaching tech firms; 3) a non-profit organization fighting for SoMa’s cultural soul; and 4) a man’s (literally) scintillating experience at a porno-shop.

Ongoing gentrification has transformed South of Market, and since opening in 1989, Bindlestiff Studio has witnessed every boom, bubble, and bust. Depending on where you stand, it can feel like SoMa is either benefitting from or being besieged by the changes.

The show is a culmination of Bindlestiff’s long-running writing/directing/acting workshop series, Stories High. Now in its 13th cycle, Stories High continues to foster new talent, expand artists’ skills, and champion fresh perspectives.

Stories High XIII: The SoMa Edition features four stand-alone theatrical pieces, which were inspired by the writers’ real life experiences as residents, artists, activists, and patrons of SoMa:

"Rally Fights the Man" by Cristal Fiel
Directed by Conrad Panganiban

"Last Night of the Tarantula" by Ed Mabasa.
Directed by Judith Ferrer

"The Last Unicorns" by Paolo Salazar.
Directed by Aimee Espiritu

"Gotta Love Them Immigrants!" by Dianne Aquino Chui.
Directed by Aureen Almario
