San Francisco Has A Cast!

by Tarja on March 14, 2016

After three days of auditions all over the Bay Area, LISTEN TO YOUR MOTHER San Francisco 2016 has a cast!


We listened to people share a piece of themselves in San Francisco, Oakland, and Mill Valley – the funny and heart-breaking and relatable. They made themselves vulnerable and in doing so, made themselves powerful. Mary, Janine and I were touched to the core by each story.

Hivery Audition

Of course, when the auditions ended, the work began. With a showtime of only 90 minutes and 11 cast spots available, the only thing that got us through the selection process was chocolate zucchini bread. A lot of it.


Our talented cast hails from all over the Bay Area. Their voices and stories are amazing and moving and you will be blown away when you hear them on May 6th! Without further ado…

A big welcome to our new cast!

Thank you, Janine, Tarja, and Mary! Looking forward to the experience! Congrats to the other cast members and to all who submitted essays! Putting your work out there for others to read/hear is brave.
