Accessibility Notes

Liberating Ourselves Locally (LOL) is wheelchair-accessible, including a brand-new accessible restroom, except for no push-buttons on the front door. The restroom will have been painted with zero-VOC paint about 1 week before the show. Air purifier will be running.

Eastside Arts Alliance is fully wheelchair-accessible.

Oakland SOL's entrance does not have a push-button opening and the restroom has been a tight fit in the doorway and has a smaller turnaround radius, but has been workable for friends using wheelchairs.

* Please show up fragrance free in order to avoid getting our staff, friends, loves, and community sick. Get info here:

* Deadline to request ASL interpretation and childcare (email 10/30
