This years festival is a true adventure in

improv, staged readings, new work, excerpts

and defies concise description.

There will be 30 hours of performance throughout the day being performed

simultaneously on 14 stages, indoors and outdoors, which are located

within a short walk of each other.

Many of the performances are family friendly including 20 shows for

children. An estimated 10,000 people attended the festival last year.

The downtown San Francisco festival takes place at Yerba Buena Gardens,

the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, Zeum, and the Metreon. Yerba Buena

Gardens is located between Mission & Folsom, Third & Fourth Streets, in

downtown San Francisco. Easy to reach by MUNI and BART. All admissions

are FREE.

This is the chance to discover some

wonderful performers, shows, and theater groups that are under the

radar, as well as others that are more well known. Short performances,

30 minutes and less, allow you to sample so much in one place on one

day. Its casual, fun, and festive,

said producer Bill Schwartz. Theater in

earlier days was a peoples art form that now

has become exclusive. This festival brings theater back to its roots. Its

truly accessible.

The festival is presented in partnership with the Yerba Buena Gardens
