"The Memory Be Green"

Complete Episode: January 13, 2012 »


After the 1978 assassinations of San Francisco Mayor George Moscone and Supervisor Harvey Milk, Moscone's story slipped beneath the headlines while Milk's dominated. Jonathan Moscone, George's son, tells his personal story and in a compelling way: through theater. Berkeley Rep's production of "Ghost Light," written by artistic director Tony Taccone and directed by Moscone, is a re-imagination of history, memory, fathers and sons. Combining the arc of the play's creation with reflections about Mayor Moscone and the times in which he lived, "The Memory Be Green" offers perspective on history and the role of art in bringing insight to both. "Ghost Light" plays at Berkeley Repertory Theater through February 19. "The Memory Be Green" airs on KQED-9 on Tuesday, January 17 at 7:30pm. Watch the full film online.
