What do others say about love? Find out in the award-winning solo play, "What They Said About Love" written and directed by Bay Area resident Steve Budd, for one night only at the Rheem Theatre at 7 p.m. July 1.
"What They Said About Love" is documentary theater at its best. Budd's brainchild was created a few years ago after another failed romantic relationship. In order to improve his relationships, Budd began interviewing married couples to learn how they succeed in marriage. After over 75 hours, three dozen couples and two dozen singles, Budd recreates in his performance the best interviews, the funniest moments, the strangest, most provocative and the most touching stories. He brings 12 characters to life that will make you laugh, think, cry and walk away appreciating the one you "Love." "What They Said About Love" won Best of the Fringe 2016 at the prestigious San Francisco Fringe Festival.
Don't miss this unique award-winning play at the Rheem Theatre -- come out to support live theater in the Lamorinda community. It is recommended that you purchase your tickets ahead of time for the last several Rheem Theatre special events have been sold out.
