6/29-7/22: Terry Baum in “BAUM FOR PEACE or How I Learned to Stop  
Worrying & Love Democracy”

June 29-7/22, 2006

The Marsh
1062 Valencia Street
San Francisco, CA 94110

Tel. 415 826 5750

The Marsh presents slightly world-renowned lesbian playwright Terry  
Baum in “BAUM FOR PEACE or How I Learned to Stop Worrying & Love  
Democracy.” This new comedy describes Baum’s adventures as the Green  
candidate for U.S. Congress in San Francisco in 2004 during which she  
received the highest percentage of the vote of any small-party write- 
in candidate for Congress in history: 2.9%! Inspired to run because  
she believed that San Franciscans deserved a peace candidate, Baum  
faced impossible odds, beginning with a fight to get her name on the  
ballot. Accompanied by Scrumbly Koldewyn on the piano, she uses  
farce, song and self-mockery to take the audience on a wild journey  
through electoral politics that is up-close and personal, hilarious,  
infuriating and always surprising. “BAUM FOR PEACE” is directed by  
Bobbi Ausubel, with songs by David Hyman and Scrumbly Koldewyn.

Lauded as “the lesbian Woody Allen” by the San Francisco Chronicle,  
Terry Baum has had her plays produced in 11 countries and five  
languages. When “BAUM FOR PEACE” played in Ashland, Oregon, reviews  
described it as “Just the ticket for laughs” and “A compelling story  
told with warm-hearted wit.” Critics have compared Baum to Norman  
Mailer, Lily Tomlin, Spalding Gray, Eve Arden, Hunter Thompson, and  
Godzilla – although never in the same review.

Earn A Living Making San Francisco A More Green and Progressive City!

Two years ago, former organizers for the Matt Gonzalez for Mayor
campaign decided it was time to stop getting 'close but not close
enough' to progressive victories like public power and Matt as Mayor,
and to begin a city wide, year round, grassroots campaign that would  
start helping us win such victories!

So in January 2004, the organization Our City was born. Since then we
have helped to:

- Pass the ban on old polluting diesel buses
- Pass Matt Gonzalez's anti chain store law
- Get the downtown hotel workers back on the job, and
- Get the Police and Planning Commissions put back on SF Government TV
after the City tried to pull them off.

Now we are campaigning to get rid of PG&E's monopoly on our electricity
service, and start running the City on renewable energy like solar and
wind power instead!

We have just begun hiring and training new grassroots campaigners to
help us win this fight.
No experience necessary.
Earn $280 to $400 each four day work week learning to be a strong
progressive organizer.
To apply, call Eric at 415-756-8844 from noon to 2pm any weekday, or
