TRAVEL & ENTERTAINMENT: The Marsh Berkeley Presents "What They Said About Love"

Feb 09, 2018
The Marsh welcomes a new solo show to the Berkeley stage, "What They Said About Love" by Steve Budd, which was awarded the “Best of Fringe” at the 2016 San Francisco Fringe Festival. In this absorbing solo show, Steve wonders why other people can — and why he can’t — tie the knot. Budd sheds light on how people meet and make it to the altar, the push and pull of relationships, singles who can’t seem to settle down, and more.

The Oakland based actor captures the physical and vocal nuances of more than a dozen Bay Area characters, using their own words taken from hours of interviews, and weaves in his relentless search for 'the one.' "What They Said About Love," directed by Mark Kenward and developed with David Ford, is currently playing Fridays and Saturdays through March 3, 2018 at The Marsh Berkeley (2120 Allston Way), Berkeley, CA.



In "What They Said About Love," audiences meet a cast of characters including a New Age couple who could swear they met before they met, an Oakland artist who can’t resist homeless guys, and a pair of metal heads who thought it would be a hoot to get married on 6-6-6 (June 6, 2006), as well as others. Previous versions of this funny and touching documentary theater piece appeared in the September 2016 San Francisco Fringe Festival, as a Marsh Rising in November 2016, and in the June 2017 Hollywood Fringe Festival.

Steve Budd is an actor, writer, storyteller, standup comic, and solo performer living in Oakland. He has acted with many local theater companies, including San Francisco Playhouse, Custom Made Theatre Co., New Conservatory Theatre Center, Impact Theatre, and Marin Shakespeare Company.

For tickets please visit www.themarsh.org or call The Marsh box office at 415-282-3055 (open 1pm-4pm, Monday through Friday).
