San Francisco is a town full of the awkward and the estranged; a healthy percentage of our citizenry arrived on these shores due to an inability to fit in anywhere else. Theatre of Yugen presents a new collection of original monologues, "Being on the Outside," that gives the outcast a voice, with meditations on being misunderstood from local multiculti writers such as playwright Margery Kreitman (Please Wait for the Beep and Sax and the Single Dyke) and actor/director/playwright Carl Thelin, best known for his 2003 Bay One-Acts Festival piece Prawn Tales. Woven through the seven monologues are music and movement from dancer and composer Laurie Buenafe. The alienation begins at 8 p.m. at Noh Space, 2840 Mariposa (at Florida), S.F. Admission is $10-15; call 621-7978 or visit www.theatreofyugen.org.
