American Conservatory Theater (A.C.T.) is stretching the theatrical landscape with the world premiere production of Obie Award–winning Bay Area playwright Christopher Chen’s virtual play, CommunionIt’s a thrilling interactive theatrical event on Zoom which is performed live May 28–June 27, 2021 for a limited number of attendees at each performance. It will feature Bay Area favorite Stacy Ross in her return to A.C.T. For tickets ($41–$55), call 415-749-2228 or visit A.C.T.

Playwright Christopher Chen is a master of psychological intrigue. His plays invite an audience to experience a world of unknown. Ms. Ross has been on stages throughout the Bay Area, appearing as everyone from Hedda Gabler to Leni Riefenstahl. You’ve most likely spent many hours watching Stacy, experiencing her emotions, and reveling in her talent; you may think you know her—but do you? A.C.T. invites you to connect through Zoom with a celebrated actor looking to commune with a private audience. Christopher, Stacy, and A.C.T. Artistic Director Pam MacKinnon have come together to create a live, world-premiere experience written just for A.C.T. that is part docudrama, part mystery, part confessional, and totally theatrical. By performance’s end you may still be unsure who Stacy Ross really is—but through the process of communing, she’ll most definitely know more about you.
