The mission of SF BATCO unites artists and audiences through live theatre that is reflective of the authentic perspectives and history of the San Francisco Bay Area. As a non-profit organization, they support artists through creative development, full productions, and theater supporters. We are not the first people in the San Francisco Bay Area to want a thriving theater scene to exist and hopefully we won’t be the last. In fact, we know that there is an entire community in San Francisco that wants to see the once flourishing Market Street come back to life with lit up marquees, refurbished trolleys, and the unmistakable sound of young talent pouring out of stage doors.
Our theatre company delivers a creatively charged youthful energy that encompasses all that makes San Francisco great. We are a theatrical generation to be reckoned with. We will not accept “a lack of resources” as an excuse. We will create great art and give back to our community and tell our stories using a multiplicity of minds, bodies, and voices. This upcoming Friday a new play by Josh Wilder. SALT PEPPER KETCHUP is bitter comedy centering on John and Linda Wu, two newly minted American citizens who’ve hewn their piece of the American Dream out of plexi-glass and chicken wings, smack dab in the middle of the hood. Enter a new supermarket Co-op and its vanguard–the pioneers for the “new generation” to come. Salt Pepper Ketchup is a contemporary dissection of what happens to people when you threaten where they belong. Salt Pepper Ketchup will be premiering from September 29-October 8 at the Buriel Clay Theatre located in the African American Art and Culture Complex, 762 Fulton St San Francisco CA 92102. Mature content and language will be used throughout the play.
