A Poker Game in San Francisco 1888. Written and Directed by Ruth Stotter.
Come to Henderson's Saloon in San Francisco, 1888, and join Mark Twain (Sam Clemens), Sam Hall (proprietor of the Occidental Hotel), Sam Hill (Railroad baron) and Sam Brannan (first self-made millionaire in California) as they banter about the ladies and life in general the city by the Bay. You will hear the strange stories about how Modesto and Calistoga got their names. Even if you've never played poker you will see how the techniques of a good player - the bluff and the gamble - make for an amusing life!
You will leave the theater pondering the role of money on ones happiness, your attitude about how posterity will view your life, and with a smile on your face!
Who: Phil Sheridan and Toby Bingham, John Boe, George Duryea and Chuck Auerbach.
