everything from Culture Clash’s America
to The Exonerated,“interview-based the-
ater” is seemingly everywhere these
days. At The Z Space Studio in San
Francisco, where artists are at work cre-
ating new interview-based plays about
everything from the US Tax Code to the
Jonestown tragedy, we have an insider’s
view of the surprising range and the
particular challenges and rewards of
the form. Northern California audi-
ences will have many opportunities to
experience this work firsthand in the
coming months.

The Z Space Studio is a theater incuba-
tor in San Francisco now celebrating its
tenth anniversary. Familiar to Central
Coast audiences through the annual Z
Festival of New Performances that
arrives each fall in Santa Cruz and from
the popular literature-based produc-
tions of Word for Word, the Studio is a
leading center for the development of
new works and new voices for the
American theater.

In 2002 the Z Space, in collaboration
with Magic Theatre in San Francisco,
                                            Magic, with the
