Arlene Francis Center, 99 Sixth Street
Show Runs Through January 25
This Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning play explodes in two outrageous acts set fifty years apart. Act One takes place in 1959, as nervous community leaders anxiously try to stop the sale of a home to a black family. Act Two is set in the same house in the present day, as the now predominantly African-American neighborhood battles to hold its ground in the face of gentrification.

HOLE IN THE HEAD EXHIBITION
On Display Through February 9
The exhibition Hole in the Head: The Battle for Bodega Bay and the Birth of the Environmental Movement presents the dramatic story that involved a remarkable array of people. Not only would the battle initiate the anti-nuclear movement nationally and help usher in the age of modern environmentalism; it would transform the nature of civic engagement. A remnant of the proposed power plant remains today—a large hole dug into Bodega Head that is now filled with water. However, the battle has left a much greater legacy.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!
2015 looks to be a good year for our ‘hood. Lots of new home-owners moving into former rentals. Donut Hut has been re-imagined as Brew (see more below), the museum plans to open up their new exhibit area in the former Conklin Bros. flooring store, and the St. Rose Church will begin retrofitting the original 1901 stone church so it will be available to the community once again since it was shuttered in the late 1980’s. Remember, besides our neighborhood website, you can always connect with St. Rose Neighborhood residents through Nextdoor.com.
Brew (the former Donut Hut) is now open! Brew is a craft café offering specialty coffee and eventually local craft beer. They focus on local, sustainable, and highest quality goods coupled with experience in a warm and friendly environment. They support only local coffee roasters, bakers, and brewers. The St. Rose neighborhood now has a gathering place for locals and by locals.
