Revival/August 31 – October 2
WHY WE HAVE A BODY
The comedy that rocked San Francisco
by Claire Chafee
directed by Katie Pearl

Lili is a lesbian P.I. who stalks men cheating on their wives. When she’s not channeling Joan of Arc, Lili’s little sister Mary holds up a 7-11 and directs traffice. Their mother Eleanor, an archeologist, specializes in – what else? – the female brain. Claire Chafee’s comedy returns to Magic as sparkling as the day it premiered to packed houses in 1993.

A New Play/November 3 – December 4
ANNAPURNA
A breathtaking story about the longevity of love
by Sharr White
directed by Loretta Greco

After twenty years apart, Emma tracks Ulysses to a trailer park in the middle of nowhere for a final reckoning. What unfolds is a visceral and profound meditation on love and loss with the simplest of theatrical elements: two people in one room.

Playwright Sharr White’s wit is razor sharp, his insight deep, and his poetry spare. Nothing could be more epic.

World Premiere/January 26 – February 26
JESUS IN INDIA
A biblical prequel about the world’s most famous rebel – before he found his cause
by Lloyd Suh
directed by Daniella Topol

Two years after his hit play, American Hwangap, Lloyd Suh is back with a contemporary parable imagining a wild stretch in the lost years of
Jesus Christ. Teenaged and wayward, Jesus of Nazareth journeys to the east with his friend, Abigail of Galilee towards a spiritual haven full of Maharajas, music and some really good weed.

“The Magic Theatre unveiled a truly original new voice with the world premiere of Lloyd Suh’s quirky and affecting American Hwangap…Missed connections stalked the stage with beguiling ingenuity in a tale of long distance family reunion.”
Top 10 Best of Bay Area Theatre in 2009 – Rob Hurwitt, Chronicle Theatre Critic

American Premiere/March 29 – April 29
ANY GIVEN DAY
Two back-to-back plays
by Linda McLean

It’s 2pm in the East Side of Glasgow: Bill and Sadie are preparing for the arrival of their favorite person. It’s all going like clockwork until they discover they’ve forgotten the bread. Buying bread means going outside. Oh oh.

It’s 2pm in the West Side of Glasgow: two people are closing up the bar for the afternoon. A chance call opens up the opportunity for a future which they have stopped imagining.

Leading Scottish playwright Linda McLean explores the fleeting nature of love and happiness set against a backdrop of violence and disappointment.

World Premiere/May 24 – June 24
BRUJA
a reimagining of Euripedes’ Medea
by Luis Alfaro

From the critically acclaimed writer of Oedipus el Rey comes a contemporary story so haunting and sensual, it explodes one of the ancient myths most firmly embedded in our culture. A sizzling look at a sorceress scorned.

“Gritty, fierce, tersely poetic…Luis Alfaro’s riveting modern barrio retelling of Sophocles’ Oedipus burned up the stage at the Magic Theatre.”
