The Marsh Berkeley is delighted to extend Lynne Kaufman’s critically acclaimed new play, ACID TEST: The Many Incarnations Of Ram Dass, through January 5, 2013. Performed by Warren David Keith and directed by Joel Mullennix, this is the true story of Richard Alpert, aka Ram Dass, the famous Harvard psychology professor and spiritual seeker, who, along with Timothy Leary, started the psychedelic revolution and then, in the third of three life transformations, went on to become an international teacher on enlightenment. The production will travel to Hawaii in December to perform the play for Ram Dass who has taken a keen interest in the play but is too frail to travel.
Lynne Kaufman’s twenty full-length plays have been produced all over the country, including Actors Theatre of Louisville, Magic Theatre, Theatreworks, The Fountain Theatre and The Abingodon. Warren David Keith has appeared at theatres throughout the Bay Area, including the Aurora, Marin Theatre Company, Word For Word and the California Shakespeare Theater. Joel Mullennix most recently directed the highly successful productions of Olive Kitteridge, More Stories by Tobias Wolff and Which is More Than I Can Say About Some People for Word For Word.
