In his acclaimed solo show, The Golden Hammer, Mark McGoldrick weaves together tales of adolescent judgement in 1970s Arizona, friendship in the wilds of the Yukon, and caprice in the criminal courts of Oakland. The characters we meet are vulnerable or reprehensible — McGoldrick keeps us from pretending we can always know which. It is a story of delinquency in the deserts of the Southwest, revelation on northern rivers, and life in the courts of the East Bay. With compassion and humor, he explores the elusive nature of truth, where we do not know how often we botch the job, or how badly.
