The San Francisco Playhouse (Bill English, Artistic Director; Susi Damilano, Producing Director) launches its twelfth season with the world premiere of Ideation, winner of the 2014 prestigious Glickman playwriting award.
Ideation, written by Aaron Loeb (First Person Shooter, Abraham Lincoln’s Big, Gay Dance Party) and directed by Josh Costello, broke box office records and received critical acclaim during its development process as part of the 2014 San Francisco Playhouse 2014 Sandbox Series.
Aaron Loeb brings a dark comic edge to this psychological suspense thriller, in which group of corporate consultants work together on a mysterious and ethically ambiguous project. As the lines between right and wrong are blurred, these characters must navigate the cognitive dissonances and moral dilemmas to decide for themselves if everything is as it really seems.
The cast includes Ben Euphrat, Jason Kapoor, Mark Phillips, Carrie Paff and Michael Ray Wisely.

Since founding the Mill Valley Film Festival in 1977, Mark Fishkin has shepherded this once small, three-day showcase into an eleven-day, internationally acclaimed cinema event presenting a wide variety of new films from around the world in an engaged, community setting.
The festival has an impressive track record of launching new films and new filmmakers, and has earned a reputation as a filmmakers’ festival by celebrating the best in American independent and foreign films, along side high-profile and prestigious award contenders.
Five of the last six films that have gone on to win the Academy Award for Best Picture (Slumdog Millionaire, The King’s Speech, The Artist, Argo, 12 Years a Slave), were screened at MVFF with filmmakers and cast members in attendance.
Each year the festival welcomes more than 200 filmmakers, representing more than 50 countries. Screening sections include World Cinema; US Cinema; Valley of the Docs; Children’s FilmFest; a daily shorts program; and Active Cinema, MVFF’s activist films initiative. Festival guests also enjoy Tributes, Spotlights and Galas throughout.
The relaxed and non-competitive atmosphere surrounding MVFF, gives filmmakers and audiences alike the opportunity to share their work and experiences in a collaborative and convivial setting.
