The Marsh develops new performance. It encourages and supports all stages of this development by providing artists with an intimate performance venue and an environment that encourages experimentation by giving audiences a place in which to see work on the cutting edge of creativity.
The Marsh provides a community where both artists and audiences can branch out into new territory. At each stage of development audiences serve as an integral part of the creative process, witnessing the magic of the artist at work. And those of us who experience the unfolding of an exceptional new piece, will never forget it.

Zappo Diddio's Hippie Kid
Zappo’s solo performance covers a spectrum of his extraordinary life experiences. From growing up as a kid in a hippie commune to his work with children in schools, hospitals, and orphanages, he peels into the rich fruits of joy and pain. The show ebbs and flows through joys and hilarity of his unique childhood, the unanswered questions relating to abandonment by his father and the profound grief he continues to navigate since his mother’s passing many years ago. Performance at The Marsh, Berkeley September 6 to October 12, 2019. For tickets, Click Here.
Who Killed Sylvia Plath
Poet Sylvia Plath returns to her burial place in West Yorkshire, England to view the fourth replacement of her tombstone. The previous ones have been defaced by feminists who chiseled off her married name, claiming it was Ted Hughes who caused Sylvia’s death. Did he? Was her suicide at 30 a good career move? Would she do it again? And what does it say to us today? Playing at The Marsh, Berkeley September 14 – October 20, 2019. For tickets, Click Here.
