The year is 1982. Reagan is President, E.T. is released, and Jeremy takes a road trip with his week-end father to Orange County. Forced to repeatedly tickle his father’s feet, sleep in his grandmother’s bed and go to an unknown relative’s wedding, he’ll do and say anything that will secure a visit to the most magical place on Earth: Disneyland. Directed by Mark Kenward, and produced by John Hamilton.
Jeremy Julian Greco (Actor, Writer) is a San Francisco-based actor, director and writer. He wrote The Thrilling Adventures of Elvis in Space and Elvis in Space II: Elvis Rex, both premiered at SF Fringe Festival. Excerpts of his solo show, With Held were performed at Ever Gold Gallery (as part of an art show featuring the artist, John Held Jr) and at the Marin Fringe Festival, where Greco won a Critics Circle Best Actor award for his portrayal of John Held Jr. With Held was performed in its entirety at the SF Fringe Festival and as part of the Marsh Rising Series. The Huffington Post said of With Held, “With Held is a quietly transformative work, insightful, compelling, humorous, and ripe with the stage should always possess – pathos.” Greco also directed John Hamilton’s play, The Stetson Manifesto, for the 2007 SF Fringe.
John Philip Hamilton (Producer) is a playwright and a producer. His original works have played to many San Francisco bar-rooms and Tenderloin stages, including Motel Cowboy (New Langton Arts, 2005) and Stetson Manifesto (SF Fringe 2007). He has produced several shows with playwright Jeremy Greco, including Elvis in Space 2 (SF Fringe 2006) and With Held (Marin Fringe/SF Fringe 2013). He most recently co-produced the off-off Broadway revival of The Water Children by Wendy MacLeod.
Mark Kenward (Director) a Bay Area Theatre Critics Circle Nominee and two-time selection for the Best of San Francisco Solo Series, has performed his work in over 40 cities throughout the US and Canada, including a reception for The House of Representatives and several runs at The Marsh. He is the creator and performer of eight solo shows, receiving kudos as “a commanding storyteller” and “a master of the craft”. Kenward is the director of over 30 full-length solo shows, including Wayne Harris’s Tyrone ‘Short Leg’ Johnson and Some White Boys and David Caggiano’s Jurassic Ark, both of which won ‘Best of SF Fringe’ honors.
