The One-Eyed Man is King is 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 well known San Francisco actors, Andi Trindle (Lise) and Dan Wilson (Bendalli), starring opposite one another for the first time since Triple Shot Production’s acclaimed production, Riches, in 2008. Newcomer Allie Jones brought high energy to the character Elliot. Riches Director, Bahati Bonner, returned to lead this experienced cast.
