'Candlestick' is about a changing Bay Area, not just football

Jan 31, 2019

“Candlestick” is the latest production from San Francisco theatre company Campo Santo. The drama follows a group of longtime Bayview residents and 49ers fans tailgating during the team’s final season at Candlestick Park, and explores the changing face of the Bay Area before the niners move to Santa Clara.

Some people it's their religion, football is religion.

Lead actor Donald Lacy talks about the show and his life in East Oakland. By the way, he happens to be a lifelong Raiders fan, so, as he puts it, "this is the greatest acting challenge of my career!"

You can catch Donald in "Candlestick" playing at ACT’s Costume Shop Theater through the weekend.
