Sunset Solos

A monthly solo performance series Curated & produced by Jeremy Greco


Sunday, June 23 – 7 PM - 9 PM (Doors 6:45 PM)

Amidst the closure of many small theaters in San Francisco, Sunset Solos advocates for thinking "outside the box" when workshopping solo performance pieces, challenging the notion that theater is confined to traditional venues.

 

Join us for the sixth Sunset Solos with performances by Abbey Glover, Bennet Caffee, and Theresa Donahoe. If you'd like to learn more about this exciting series and its creator Jeremy Greco, or are interested in performing, please visit the Sunset Solos website.

Abbey Glover


Title: “A Work In Progress” 

 

Synopsis: In a society that rewards striving and achieving, an insecure perfectionist doesn’t know when to stop. When to say enough is enough. Abbey's relentless desire for more - more money, more power, more security, more prestige - becomes a suffocating trap that forces her to grapple with her insecurities and the consequences of her ambition.

 

Bio: Abbey Glover is a San Francisco-based writer, storyteller, and solo performer. Her work is anchored in a desire to say the things that she thinks and feels but has been scared to say out loud for fear of shame, embarrassment, or rejection. She premiered her debut solo show, "Abbey's Box", at the 2023 Edinburgh Fringe Festival in Scotland to critical acclaim, including earning four stars from The Scotsman and Broadway World and an OffFest nomination.
