We’re pleased to report that we’re closing out our ‘Season of Revolution’ with a bang! Critics are enthralled by Christopher Chen’s The Hundred Flowers Project: 

” ‘Flowers’ revels in a mixed-media meta-theatricality that unfolds its unexpected twists with sharp clarity. As the live and onscreen action spins out of control, Chen and director Desdemona Chiang keep the themes and possible plots fully accessible….”Flowers” marks local playwright Chen as a talent to keep an eye on.” – Rob Hurwitt, SF Chronicle

“There’s something utterly primal about the premise of this Crowded Fire/Playwrights Foundation co-production: members of a San Francisco theater collective gather to create, in the most organic, zeitgeist-melding way, a dazzling piece of theater about the life and rule of Mao Tse Tung that has deep metaphorical connection to our own times.” – Chad Jones, Theater Dogs

“Chen’s vision — linking the power of Mao’s reign with Facebook’s dominance — is at once hilariously satirical and ominous…Again, Crowded Fire Theater (co-presenting with Playwrights Foundation, where the script was developed) has made its mark as an experimental company.” – Jean Schiffman, The SF Examiner

“It’s a technically dazzling play, even an important one, that’s all the more impressive because it doesn’t take itself too seriously—Chen fascinates us with its tangled metatheatrical narrative and then wins us over entirely by poking fun at it. Anyone who doesn’t rush out to join this revolution is automatically suspect.” – Sam Hurwitt, The Idiolect

For those of you who have seen it, be sure to let us know what you think! For those of you that haven’t, please refer to the Sam Hurwitt quote above and then get your tickets now! We’ve added Saturday matinee performances for the remainder of the run which MUST close on November 17th.

See you at the theater!
