By Korde A. Tuttle; Directed by Melissa Crespo. When Janelle relocates to Texas for the opportunity of a lifetime, she and her partner, Kane, are reminded that the consequences of being in the wrong place at the wrong time can be horrific. For three county police officers, how might those same consequences manifest themselves along racialized and gendered lines? graveyard shift is a love story about collision, opposing ideologies, interests, truth, and how the characters in this play make sense of them. Or don't.
San Francisco Playhouse’s Sandbox Series, now in its 10th season of presenting new works, stages Korde Arrington Tuttle’s four-actor play, which artistic director Bill English says is ripped from the headlines. It’s about truth, opposing ideologies and other major issues of the day—and it’s a love story, too.
