The Headlands (Regional, American Conservatory Theatre (ACT) - Geary Theatre, 2023) | Playbill

The Headlands



The Headlands is a complicated love letter to San Francisco. Obie Award–winning playwright Christopher Chen dives deep into his San Francisco roots to tell the story of true crime fan Henry Wong. For Henry, his father’s unexplained death is the ultimate cold case. But as he digs into the SFPD evidence, he’s haunted by the myths and misdirections of his own family history. How did his parents really meet? What’s behind the detective’s warnings about the case? And what is hidden in the Marin Headlands?

Directed by Pam McKinnon
