Mountain View-based Pear Theatre’s season finale, Christopher Chen’s “The Late Wedding,” is scheduled to open Friday and run through July 18 in person and online.
The production may be viewed live – indoors or outdoors – or via streaming video. Seating for live, indoor shows is capped at 30 people.
Directed by Sinohui Hinojosa, the play is a tapestry of interwoven and shifting storylines that explore human relationships. Chen’s script includes an anthropological study, an action thriller, a space epic and a play-within-a-play.
The cast comprises Moshe Goodman, Carissa Ratanaphanyarat, Gaz Jemeel, Stephen Kanaski, Tyler Jeffreys and John S. Boles.
Annamarie MacLeod serves as the narrator.
Director Hinojosa is the co-founder and creative director of Emerging Artist Productions, as well as the founder of the San Jose Pop-Up Choir and both the San Jose International and Walnut Creek Short film festivals. Last season he worked with Pear Theatre as a director for its Fresh Baked Pears initiative, in which 14 Bay Area authors from historically or presently marginalized populations wrote short plays in 24 hours that were then presented online. As a filmmaker, he produced and directed several short films.
Shows are slated 8 p.m. Fridays, 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. Saturdays, and 2 p.m. Sundays at 1110 La Avenida St.
Tickets are $30-$34.
