"Acid Test" is the true story of Ram Dass, renowned spiritual teacher and LSD pioneer. Presented by The Marsh San Francisco, the show explores Ram Dass' many incarnations from being Richard Alpert, the scion of a wealthy Jewish family and a psychology professor at Harvard, to launching the psychedelic revolution along with Timothy Leary.
The journey of Ram Dass, aka Richard Alpert, the “acid” guru who, with Timothy Leary, pioneered the concept of awareness and spirituality through LSD, is gracefully recaptured in this returning solo show. Written by local playwright Lynne Kaufman and directed by Nancy Carlin, it’s performed by the impressive Warren David Keith. Whether or not you were there then, you can be here now.
