Do It Live! Productions is unleashing the Bay Area Premier of Carlos Murillo’s charismatic romantic thriller Dark Play or Stories for Boys, directed by Logan Ellis. The second show of their second season, and their first Bay Area Premier, Dark Play is coming to the Exit Theatre, opening June 22nd.
Who would you like to be today? Nick Suttcliffe has landed his first girlfriend, but after the two seal the deal, he finds that he’d better explain the bevy of stab wounds that adorn his abdomen. Dark Play tells the story of Nick’s very first lover, the power a teenager can take from the internet, and the false selves Nick creates to be free of his own body.
Following last Fall's Phaedra's Love, Do It Live is coming back with a story of identity crisis, throbbing young love and violent manipulation. Dark Play exposes San Franciscan audiences to a story of unreconciled identity and the ugly side of sexual fixation.
SF’s ambitious new theater company, Do It Live, is carving their way through their second season. Last fall, Do It Live’s Phaedra’s Love scandalized audiences and critics alike, with the Examiner saying “this reviewer was shaken seriously enough to consider walking out early in the performance. But the decision to stick around was well rewarded.” SF Weekly called Phaedra “Ghastly fun to watch” and the Examiner named it among their “Ten Best Plays of 2012.” With Dark Play be sure to expect These scrappy insurrectionists are delivering another darkly comic pile-driver in the wrestling arena of underground theatre.

PRAISE FOR PAST PRODUCTIONS:
Last June, dark play or stories for boys set San Francisco’s theater community on fire. Bay Area actor Warren David Keith said of it " [dark play] is the best work by a new company that I've seen in the Bay Area in a very long time...and the play and its author, Carlos Murillo deserve our attention. "Dark Play" has been beautifully designed, smoothly directed and passionately performed by a company of excellent and regrettably new-to -me artists. Their work should be seen and discussed.”
