A Message From Mr. Geoffrey
Director of the SF Recovery Theatre
2016 - A Forward Look


2015 has proven once again to be a true test for myself and the Black Theater community as a whole. The losses of both Amiri Baraka (2014) and Maya Angelou (2014) created a hole to be felt nationwide, not failing to mention Dr William H. Grier, co-author of Black Rage (2015).

With the spirit these icons represent, we march boldly into 2016 armed with new productions and venues with which to carry on the ancient tradition.
SF Recovery Theatre is honored to present this year, the OBIE award winning Black Arts Movement classic, “The Dutchman”, penned by the god-father himself Amiri Baraka. This year will also include a few classic and original staged works representative of the SFRT mission.

We continue our work in progress, “Night at the Black Hawk” an original piece reflecting on the lives and stories of the artists, musicians and residents that lived in the shadow of the Black Hawk Jazz Club. Presented at various venues, both high and low, throughout San Francisco, our monthly themed musical productions at Martuni’s Piano Bar offer an excellent backdrop for this exciting work.

We also welcome a new partnership with, From the Garden to the Table (www.g2t.org), to form a unique mobile dinner/theater intervention model to forestall the many health maladies brought on by poor diet and unhealthy lifestyles.

Having left 2015 behind, our accomplishments of starting the first Black Theater Festival in the Tenderloin, an article in SF Chronicle, a first of its kind Tenderloin Trifecta, performing three stunning shows in two days with the support of jazz guitarist, Spencer Barefield and actor/comedian David Alan Grier

As the many spirits that go before us have taught us….the show must go on!
