Testmatch

Strand Theater
1127 Market St. San Francisco

How can we understand the present, if we won't acknowledge the past? Tony Award winner and A.C.T.'s Artistic Director Pam MacKinnon (in her Strand Theater debut) directs this scorching world premiere by playwright Kate Attwell - a contrast of two time-traveling stories focusing on cricket, a game of strict rules and hidden violence. It's 2019 and tensions in the locker room rise during a world-class match between rival women's cricket players from India and England, as secrets spill about relationships, influencers, and the integrity of the sport. Then in 1800 (or so), Abhi, the Number One Sepoy of the East India Co., struggles to force two bungling, cheating British administrators - absorbed in setting down the rules of cricket - to focus on the famine they have created outside the compound walls. Asking hard-hitting questions about colonialism, gender, and power, Testmatch launches Kate Attwell, an exciting new voice in American theater.
