Memories and Dreams of the Twentieth Century, an evening of stories (and a couple of songs) written and performed by Michael D. Brown and directed by Andrea Gordon.

A quote from one of these true stories might best describe the evening: "The personal life, deeply lived, expands into truths beyond itself." Characters such as an uncle who may or may not be a Mafia guy, the night-shift guard in a Wyoming jail, a champion race horse, Antonin Artaud, and a mysterious woman in a tale of passion and coincidence create an emotional landscape that is both dramatic and humorous.

Michael D. Brown has been creating and performing original plays for more than 25 years. His best known work was with the highly acclaimed Moving Men Theater Co. of Berkeley from 1972 to 1983. Most recently his work has received staged readings at The Magic Theatre. This is his first solo performance.

Andrea Gordon is a multi-award winning director, including 19 Bay Area Theater Critic Circle Awards, whose work has been produced at One-Act Theatre Co., Eureka Theatre and Marin Theater Co. to name just a few. She has directed plays in Chicago, Santa Barbara and Los Angeles as well as in the Bay Area.
