In this special "b-side" edition of Driven, we continue our exploration of the work of Adam Ansell and the Gray Area Theater Ensemble. As the debut performance of "Rat Creek" nears, the actors are abuzz with joy and anxiety. When the actors finally enter the stage, Adam's work is done, and the play takes on a life of its own.

Running Time:

Theater director Adam Ansell has developed a unique way of working during the 20 years that he's been running the Gray Area Ensemble in San Francisco. The doors are open to anyone who wants to participate, from experienced performers to those who have no experience in the arts. This uncommon group of ever-changing collaborators creates spellbinding, gorgeously dystopic theatrical spectacles which are both fantastical and very real. In this show, we enjoy a peek into the joyful and chaotic creation process of the "Rat Creek", The Gray Area Ensemble's latest work, which will be presented to the public at the Exit Theatre in San Francisco January 11-15th 2012.
