“Seeds” Deserving of a Standing Ovation

I was among the 50 lucky ones to witness the premier of “Seeds” that had all aspects of a great play.

Masterful acting came from an ensemble of nine, which was set in the United States, France, and England during 1944, 1945, 1946, and 1947.

“Seeds” (of French flowers) was symbolic of growing and repairing intimate relationships despite seemingly insurmountable obstacles, tragedy, and wartime crimes against the decency of humanity. This gift was presented to Masha (played by Melissa Ortiz) as she revealed a dark secret.

There were over 20 scenes in the 90-minute play without intermission, each scene proceeded with well-chosen jazz, dance, blues, and popular period tunes. At first one may find it challenging to follow but Director and Playwright Anne Yumi Kobori crafted an ingenious way of telling the story and building the plot. The audience immediately was drawn into “Seeds” as it began simultaneously on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean with two opening scenes on the single stage.

San Francisco’s PianoFight Theatre (144 Taylor Street) plays host to the Utopia Theatre Project.com’s “Seeds” during the remaining Friday and Saturday nights until March 24th.
