Ryan Alpers’ “Union Meeting” Comes to Life

Ryan Alpers, Ronald Feichtmeir, Melinda Marks and Julia Halprin Jackson perform “Union Meeting.”

On October 19, Play On Words was thrilled to return to San Francisco’s LitCrawl to participate in a raucous evening of storytelling, good food and friendship. Thank you to our friends, new and old, for making the show possible and for coming out to support our work. Thanks, also, to the more than 40 donors who contributed to our fall t-shirt drive—it is thanks to you that we will be able to start incentivizing artists to do their thing in the coming months.

What kind of rad art are you supporting by buying our shirts, you ask? Look no further than “Union Meeting,” a hilarious short play written by #powsj digital asset manager Ryan Alpers and created by him and #powsj alumnus Andrew Christian. We kicked off our Play On Words: Live in San Francisco show with this great piece, performed by Ronald Feichtmeir, Julia Halprin Jackson, Melinda Marks and Ryan Alpers:

Big thanks to Cleveland Motley for filming and Branden Frederick for acting as our resident photographer, as well as to the wonderful folks at Stage Werx in San Francisco.

Support our Sixth Season with a Rad T-Shirt!

Our mission is to elevate the voices of our community by performing their work onstage. We want to incentivize writers and artists to take artistic risks, which is why we want to pay honorariums to writers, performers, and photographers. By buying a Play On Words t-shirt, you are not only helping us pay artists and recognize their contributions to the community, but you’re effectively joining the #powsj movement.

Plus it’s a rad shirt.

Two Week Fundraiser

Men’s and women’s t-shirts are available for purchase on our fundraising site until November 2. For $25 you can contribute directly to the artists who make our show possible.
