Crowded Fire At Magic Theatre: Shipping & Handling

Presented By

Crowded Fire Theater At Magic Theatre

Aug 8th Through Sep 7th

Crowded Fire Theater presents Shipping & Handling by Star Finch at Magic Theatre, Building D, at Fort Mason Center For Arts & Culture. Shipping & Handling is a theatrical experience constructed as a night out at the theater told in reverse.

The playwright shuffles chronology in order to scramble historical expectations around Black plays, and unmap limited visions of a future AI world. Are creations always a reflection of their creator? Can an AI bear witness to divine prophecy? Shipping & Handling seeks to transmit a signal for locating the tone of what it means to be human in this specific moment, and collectively reimagine humanity’s future design.

Shipping & Handling explores how humanity will be measured within the soon-to-be-robotic  reality. Audiences start at a moment in time and move back; from an after party with actors, to a playwright’s experimental talk back, to the performance of the play everyone’s been hearing all about, a surreal and beautiful future vision from a Black feminine gaze.

Shipping & Handling is directed by Lisa Marie Rollins and Leigh Rondon-Davis. Visit for more information about Shipping & Handling‘s cast and crew.
