It’s the year 2020. The President has been re-elected, the climate is heating up, and the economy is in meltdown. Now, it’s up to all of us to figure out what happens next. In this 60-minute satirical participatory performance, audience members choose from a list of possible scenarios they want staged: impeachment? a coup? a revolution? “20/20” asks what people power looks like in a time of vast uncertainty when even choosing to do nothing at all has its consequences.

“20/20”, co-written by Kari Barclay and Stardust Doherty, is scheduled for four performances only during the San Francisco Fringe Festival.

EXIT Theatre Load-In

The street entrance of the EXIT Theatre. There is a no parking zone in front of the theater, but according to the House Manager, no one ever seems to get ticketed for parking there. If no parking is available, then one can double-park and unload with someone monitoring the vehicle and its contents.

The street entrance doorway of the EXIT Theatre. All sets, props, etc., will have to fit through this doorway.
