Peace, Pies & Prophets
Oakland, CA

This is a joint fundraiser with our friends Christian Peacemaker Team.  The production, by Ted & Company, is a performance piece entitled “I’d Like to Buy an Enemy,” a satire whose target is the use of fear in our society to control us, the use of The Other to make us afraid, how the selling of war is such a big business, and even bananas as a conflict commodity.  CLICK HERE to learn more about the play and reserve tickets.  We are also looking for volunteers and for people to bake pies for us for the Pie Auction, which will be part of the performance.  Please send an email to emailkazu[at]gmail[dot]com if you can help out!
