FAKE NEWS a World Premiere One Act Play by Bill Hyatt

will be in the Anthology $WAMPLAND at the 2017 San Francisco Fringe Festival
September 10, 15, 16, and 20, 2017


San Francisco - Other Voices in Association with the Playwrights Center of San Francisco will present $WAMPLAND as part of the 16-day San Francisco Fringe Festival, September 8 through 23, 2017.

When running for president, Donald Trump said he would “Drain the Swamp.” In a game changing presidency, we now wonder it’s a swamp or America itself that’s being drained.  In $WAMPLAND, seven award-winning Bay Area playwrights, Patrick M. Brennan, Bill Hyatt, Susan Jackson, Charley Lerrigo, Lorraine Midanik, Madeline Puccioni, and L. Zephyr, present their visions of what “making America great” means.  In FAKE NEWS, a daughter presents her father with some personal news - or is it?


$WAMPLAND will play at the Exit Theatre (156 Eddy St, San Francisco, CA 94102) on September 10th at 8:30 pm, September 15th at 8:30 pm, September 16th at 4:00 pm, and September 20nd at 8:30 pm.
