We took this trio of plays to the Hotel Utah, the Albion, the Ivy Room and Merchant's Saloon in Oakland. I had an altrusitic notion of taking theatre to the dive bar masses who would never think of coming to see a play. It was fun but we all drank too much and I got my car towed on the night of the last performance.
