Premiering on Friday, Bay Area theater troupe We Players will perform French playwright Jean Giraudoux’s “Ondine” outdoors, amidst the ruins of San Francisco’s historic Sutro Baths. The play weaves together the magical romance between an errant knight and a water nymph. Artistic director Ava Roy joins us to talk about what drew her to this lesser-known play and We Players’ mission to bring theater to the Bay Area’s magnificent open spaces.
