Well, they’ll say what they will about the Fringe Festival (the preview was a “total disaster” - really?) but I’ll you, there was nothing wrong with Pulp Scripture, playing this week and next at the Phoenix Theatre at 414 Mason right next to the Ruby Skye.
It played to a full house that seemed quite entertained with R-rated Bible Stories. Short and punchy, but it gets a little blue, so those of you aged 15 and less can’t go.
A chat Eve and Adam have with The Big Guy opens the show:

CAST AND CREW:
Rand Courtney has spent most of his career in television and film, appearing in Dawson’s Creek and One Tree Hill. A filmmaker at heart, but an actor always and forever.
Christy Crowley is a transplant to the Bay Area. A former dancer and dance teacher, she relocated to Northern California to further her acting studies and work with Bay Area theater companies. This is her first time performing in the Fringe Festival.
Sally Dana’s* stage credits include: Julie Taymor and Elliot Goldenthal’s Juan Darien, Campo Santo’s The Language of Angels, Something in the Air at the B Street, A Common Vision at The Magic and Iphigenia and Other Daughters with Mettle Theatre. She is a company member of PlayGround.
Nancy Madden* is delighted to be making her first Fringe appearance. Her work has been seen at many Bay Area theatres including San Jose Stage, TheatreWorks, Willows, Encore, Unconditional Theatre and CCT. She is a graduate of UC Davis and Penn State and a proud member of Equity since 1979.
John Mercer is making his Fringe debut at last. He is a Shotgun Players company member. And yes, God does speak with an English accent. Though some say the devil does too!
Kimberly Richards (Director) Is excited to work with this amazingly talented cast and playwright. When not directing she is touring as “Sister” in the one woman comedy hit Late Nite Catechism.
William Bivins (Playwright) is thrilled to be working with everyone on this show. He also wants to shamelessly plug his other fall premiere: “The Afterlife of the Mind,” a comedy about brain transplantation produced by Virago Theatre Co., opens in October. (www.viragotheatre.org)
Karee Stubbs (Stage Manager) began her Bay Area theater career 20 years ago at the The Phoenix Theatre. Since then she has enjoyed working with Genisius Theatre, Fred Raker, North Beach Repertory Theatre, Chamber Theatre and Joe Goode Dance Company, among others.
