Imaginary Comforts, or The Story of the Ghost of the Dead Rabbit at the Berkeley Rep

October 5 - November 19
Berkeley Repertory Theatre, 2025 Addison Street
Berkeley, CA 94704 United States
Imaginary Comforts

October 5–November 19, 2017 By Daniel Handler Directed by Tony Taccone Get Tickets The genius behind Lemony Snicket brings his relentlessly mischievous style to a new play for adults. Sarah’s father is dead, her mother is in hysterics, and the new rabbi totally bungled the funeral. To further the absurdity, the ghost of a rabbit hops into her life, pushing her to confront her deepest issues. Fantastical and wise, hilarious and sobering, Imaginary Comforts celebrates ordinary people trying to make sense out of life in the midst of endless, comedic chaos. More Info Berkeley Rep Main Season · Peet’s Theatre 2025 Addison St, Berkeley, CA 94704

The Fall 2017 exhibit of the Berkeley Historical Society will focus on these venues and the unique contribution of Berkeley musicians to 1960s music. The exhibit draws upon the extensive archives of Country Joe McDonald, as well as little known photographs from the Historical Society and several private collections. From small folk singer gatherings in private homes to public stages, Berkeley provided a rich milieu of opportunity for cross genre inspiration and creativity. Country Joe and the Fish, the Joy of Cooking and Creedence Clearwater Revival all had their start in Berkeley. A timeline of major national and international events will provide context for local musical developments. Other parts of the exhibit will focus on local recording studios, the Berkeley Folk Festival, the rock scene, rhythm and blues, the role of music in the protest movement and the career of Country Joe McDonald. Clothing and other artifacts of the period will also be on....
