A formerly homeless photographer. The bartender from Aunt Charlie's Lounge, a local drag bar. A retired Tenderloin police captain. A Cambodian refugee and juvenile delinquent-turned-youth counselor. These are just some of the many characters inhabiting the new play "Tenderloin," at Cutting Ball Theater. The piece uses documentary-style techniques to take the pulse of the complex and gritty neighborhood. We meet the director and some of the cast.

Host: Dave Iverson

Guests:

  • Annie Elias, director of "Tenderloin" and chair of the Performing Arts Department at Marin Academy
  • David Sinaiko, actor appearing in "Tenderloin"
  • Mark Ellinger, local historian, essayist, photographer and Tenderloin resident played by actor David Sinaiko in "Tenderloin"
  • Tristan Cunningham, actor appearing in "Tenderloin"
