Artistic Director, Andi C. Trindle, has been producing and performing in SanFrancisco theater for more than 13 years, but Triple Shot Productions’ history began in June of 2007 with a mission and a vision, followed by extensive planning for its inaugural production in 2008.
It's been said that 'Love Is a Game.' If this is true, then Kent and Marjorie are experienced—if somewhat jaded-- players. From their first date, they find that they are geeks of a feather. Raised in the Atari Age, they’ve pursued careers on opposite sides industry: video game developer and critic. But with heart meters running from full to almost empty, will the game end in defeat, or will they put it all on the line for Just One More Game?
Triple Shot Productions performed the world premiere of local San Francisco playwright Dan Wilson's play Harvesting the Lost in September, 2010. Harvesting the Lost tells the tale of Ruth and Amanda, a young couple working their way through the seemingly typical struggles of the modern era: ailing parents, emotionally and physically distant families, dissatisfaction and the fear of losing it, and the omnipresent spectre of homelessness. When Ruth suddenly vanishes for three days, and returns with impossible tales of alien abduction and conspiracy, Amanda must decide who she loves more: her partner or herself.
The One-Eyed Man is King, a charming and witty modern fable that challenges our view of a “normal” life — and “normal” love. Lise, trying to cope with the impending loss of a terminally ill husband — and the recriminations of an angry stepdaughter — is confronted in her home one night by the charismatic thief Bendalli, a blind man who struggles to "see" his way into the lives of others. The pair form an unlikely bond, and when lines of sight and vision begin to blur, both find their approach to the world dramatically altered.
The production featured actors, Andi Trindle (Lise) and Dan Wilson (Bendalli), starring opposite one another along with newcomer Allie Jones, who brought high energy to the character Elliot. Riches Director, Bahati Bonner, returned to lead this experienced cast.
Trindle chose Riches, by the award-winning playwright Lee Blessing, as Triple Shot Productions first production. Riches reunited collaborators from Nora (A Dollhouse) (2004), to portray an "everything is right" marriage in which everything goes horribly wrong. Riches starred Ms. Trindle and Mr. Wilson, each critically acclaimed in their most recent projects, as the troubled couple Mr. and Mrs. Rich. Bahati Bonner led the production as director for this successful project.
