When Shotgun Players was looking for a playwright from the Bay Area to write a play about South Berkeley, it was Marcus Gardley who got the gig. The result being "Love is a Dream House in Lorin," which was community theater in the truest of senses -- the cast of 30 people ranged in age from 9 to 69, consisted of professional actors and residents of the neighborhood. Although Gardley lives in New York, he continues to work on projects about the Bay Area community. Spark catches up with the poet and playwright as he works on "Love Song for the Night in Gail."
