Z Space presents:

The Making of A Great Moment

July 26 - August 26 (Weds, 7PM; Thurs 7PM; Fri 8PM; Sat 8PM; Sun 3PM), San Francisco


Z Space is pleased to present the rolling world premiere of The Making of a Great Moment, Playwright in Residence Peter Sinn Nachtrieb's follow up to 2016's enormously successful House Tour. The 90-minute exuberant comedy is directed by Sean Daniels, and stars noted comedic actors Danny Scheie and Aysan Celik.

Written specifically for their particular (and peculiar) talents, Danny and Aysan play Terry Dean and Mona Barnes, two Canadian actors on an extensive tour of their play, "Great Moments in Human Achievement," across the United States ... by bicycle. As they pedal themselves (and all of their gear) across the nation, reenacting humanity's high points for small, semi-engaged audiences, the two face an ever-growing series of challenges ranging from breaking stage lights to blowing tires.

As adversity mounts, Mona and Terry are forced to grapple with whether it was worth undertaking such a challenge in the first place. When the day is done, can our heroes manage a great moment of their own? The Making of a Great Moment is a comedy about all the potholes on the road to sheer brilliance and what we're willing to sacrifice to do what we love.

July 26 - August 26 (Weds, 7PM; Thurs 7PM; Fri 8PM; Sat 8PM; Sun 3PM)
