Tomorrow

Two One-Act Plays

by Horton Foote
Directed by Craig Slaight

April 18–22

From one of America’s greatest theatrical storytellers, these two short plays by Horton Foote see the world through youthful eyes. Blind Date imagines a meeting of two fragile teens manipulated by adults with personal agendas. Hilarious and unflinchingly honest, Blind Date offers a world where teenagers are wiser and more grounded than adults.

The Actor, commissioned by the A.C.T. Young Conservatory, is an autobiographical play that tells the story of Foote’s own reckoning as a teenager. Growing up in Depression-era Texas with the dream of becoming an actor, Horace must stick to his convictions amidst ridicule from his peers and fear of failure from his parents. 

Performances take place in The Rueff at A.C.T.’s Strand Theater, 1127 Market Street, San Francisco
