For our 31st Meetup event, Works by Women San Francisco the second show in Shotgun Player’s six-show, all-female playwrights 2015 season: Heart Shaped Nebula by San Francisco playwright Marisela Trevino Orta. Previously, we saw Orta’s The River Bride for our January 2014 meetup (see the discussion here.)
This production is directed by Desdemona Chiang, whose work we’ve seen on Rapture Blister Burn at Aurora and 410 [Gone] at Crowded Fire. Additional women artists on the project include: Marilet Martinez and Gisela Feied (actors), Stephanie Buchner (Lighting Design), Nakissa Etemad (Dramaturg), Antonia Gunnarson (Costume Design), Nikita Kadam (Stage Manager), Maya Linke (Set Design), Kirsten Royston (Properties Design), Leigh Rondon-Davis (Production Assistant), and Andrea Schwartz (Master Electrician).
You can read more about Orta’s inspirations for the play here.
