Professional actors will perform works written by graduate students at a theatre in San Francisco's Mission district. The fourth annual GreenHouse program, presented by the Theatre Arts Department, returns for another season after performing to sold-out houses for three years running. GreenHouse, a collaboration between students and professional actors and directors hailing from the Bay Area's theatre community, features three original full-length works and an evening of short plays beginning March 8 and running through April 28.

The featured plays, written by grad students from the Creative Writing Department, include "Popping the Cherry," a play about two sisters coming to peace with their dark past by Karen Macklin; "County Lines" by David Perry, which follows a shadowy driver heading north to strike a deal with the fates; and the black comedy "Heartmeat" by Mary Sullivan Roark.

Tickets for all shows are $5 to $8 (sliding scale). Tickets sell out quickly and should be reserved one week in advance by calling the El Teatro box office at (415) 255-2320. El Teatro de la Esperanza is located in San Francisco at 2940 16th Street (at Mission) on the second floor.

A different show plays each weekend. For details and a complete schedule, see the press release.
