TRAVEL & ENTERTAINMENT: The Marsh San Francisco Presents "A Fatal Step"
Dec 23, 2017
The Marsh San Francisco has announced a new solo show by Jill Vice, "A Fatal Step," performing January 18 through March 3, 2018 at The Marsh San Francisco (1062 Valencias Street). Flipping the tables on film noir tropes, Vice’s 60-minute dramedy tells its shadowy tale not from the typical point of view of the hardboiled detective, but from that of the femme fatale. When Sarah’s footing with her handsome podiatrist boyfriend is undermined by an archrival, she takes drastic steps to keep her man.
Returning to The Marsh after her highly acclaimed run of "Tipped & Tipsy", Vice’s "A Fatal Step" has been hailed as “a delicious turn on noir” by the Winnipeg Free Press.
Jill Vice is a San Francisco based playwright and solo performer as well as a director and acting coach to many new and unusual solo shows including Marga Gomez’s Pound, Elaine Magree’s Holding the Edge, Rebecca Fisher’s The Magnificence of the Disaster, and Lisa Rothman’s Date Night at Pet Emergency. Vice began studying performance art at the San Francisco Art Institute with Tony Labat. She trained in circus and clown with Jeff Raz at the San Francisco Circus Center and studied mime and mask with Leonard Pitt and James Donlon at the Flying Actors Studio. A graduate of A.C.T.’s Summer Training Congress, Jill’s background includes a wide array of performances in physical comedy, mime, clown, improv, and film.
