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 Royale By Marco Ramirez Directed by Darryl V. Jones Bay Area Premiere Starts November 3 The Aurora Theatre in Downtown Berkeley presents The Royale, from Marco Ramirez, the award-winning writer of the hit TV series Orange Is the New Black and Sons of Anarchy, comes a tightly constructed, viscerally theatrical tale that has seen acclaimed productions in New York, London, Chicago, and Los Angeles. It’s 1905, and Jay “the Sport” Jackson is ready to take on both the current heavyweight champion and the entrenched discrimination of the Jim Crow era -- but is America ready for him? The Royale is inspired by the real-life experiences of Jack Johnson, the first African-American heavyweight world champion. With rhythmic and ingenious staging, Ramirez's contenders never physically engage in the ring; instead it's The Sport's internal struggle that delivers a sharp and surprising impact.
