A world premiere play by a young, local playwright Nikita Schoen, Left-Handed Darling is a Foul Play production (the folks who brought you The Killer B-Movies in recent years: http://foulplaysf.com/ )
LEFT-HANDED DARLING is set in the rural 1930's American "Dust Bowl era" and centers on Calliope Darling, a young girl with a very unusual upbringing and a unique sense of beauty. Have her very unlikely parents prepared her well for the world?
Calliope and the audience are transported from the macabre environment of her family's home to the surreality of a carnival sideshow, an equally bizarre court room, and more strange sights and sounds than the many many books she has read in her young life could prepare her for.
With creative staging, a versatile cast, theatrical puppetry, original music, and a lot of mason jars, LEFT-HANDED DARLING will thrill you, surprise you, make you laugh and transport you back to a colorful era when Vaudeville ruled and a nickel was really worth something.
