Savage Six finds no stone unturned and very little left on the field. A primal howl at the moon at high tide from La Jolla Shores to the Smokey hills of Silver Lake and their beloved NorCal. There is complicated love\hate for British pop of the 198O's and distant tortured memory of our catholic school youth and uniforms. CC shouts out all who took bravely to the streets in this season of pandemic and social justice and a deep bow of respect to the 1OO year anniversary of a Woman's Right to Vote and direct our plays!
