$WAMPLAND Plays the 2017 San Francisco Fringe Festival
September 10, 15, 16, and 20

A collection of seven political one-act plays for our political time!

San Francisco - September 1, 2017 - Other Voices, in Association with the Playwrights' Center of San Francisco, will present $WAMPLAND as part of the 26th-annual San Francisco Fringe Festival, September 8 through 23, 2017.  $WAMPLAND will play at the Exit Theatre (156 Eddy St, San Francisco, CA 94102) on Sunday, September 10th, at 8:30pm, Friday September 15th at 8:30pm, Saturday September 16th at 4:00pm, and Wednesday September 20th at 8:30pm. $WAMPLAND runs approximately 90 minutes with no intermission.

Donald Trump said he would “Drain the Swamp.”  Now we live in the Age of Trump, and we ask whether it is America itself that is being drained.  In $WAMPLAND, seven award-winning Bay Area playwrights (Patrick M Brennan, Bill Hyatt, Susan Jackson, Charley Lerrigo, Lorraine Midanik, Madeline Puccioni, and L. Zephyr) present their visions of what “making America great” means.

Now celebrating its 26th season, the San Francisco Fringe Festival presents a bold line-up of eclectic theatrical offerings for adventurous and open-minded audiences of all persuasions.  Often over-the-top and under-the-radar of traditional theatre-going fare, the San Francisco Fringe champions the motto "No Risk, No Art", earning the devotion of more fans every year.  Most performances run under one hour and it all takes place under one roof, allowing audiences to move from venue to venue, seeing as many shows as possible in a single day.

The 2017 San Francisco Fringe Festival runs September 8 through 23, with performances all days except Mondays, and brings 30 unique productions to San Francisco’s EXIT Theatreplex located at 156 Eddy Street in the Tenderloin.  For complete listings of shows and curtain times, patrons can visit or call the Fringe Hotline at (415) 673-3847. Tickets are $12 (at the door, cash only) or less per show, with a ten-show Frequent Fringer pass available at $85 and a five-show pass available at $45.  Advanced ticket sales are available online at (search for "$wampland") or
