Co-production with Pear Avenue Theatre



A gripping new drama, Deuce tallies the game between a young tennis pro and a 42-year-old female scholar who arrives to write his father’s biography. While uncovering the mysterious past of the famous father, they are drawn into their own unfinished match of love and revenge. In this witty script layered with betrayals and reparations, the characters struggle to break powerful patterns of the past as they search for love and freedom.

A forty-seat black box theatre in Mountain View, the Pear Avenue Theatre is a burgeoning theatre company offering challenging and innovative plays to our Peninsula community. BootStrap has been a partner in the Pear’s play development program, co-producing three world premieres by Bay Area playwrights. We’re proud that Deuce has been selected to be the new play in the Pear’s fourth season.
