Creating New Plays

Jeff has created many plays, sketches and clown routines in many settings. He specializes in developing work that grapples with the most difficult issues facing his cast and society, using stories, research and physical theater to create a play.

Jeff has been commissioned to write plays for:

  • Shotgun Players
  • Worlds Arts West (People Like Me)
  • Bay Area Children's Theatre
  • Dell'Arte International
  • The Exporatorium
  • San Francisco Jewish Community Center
  • Handful Players
  • Make*A*Circus
  • The Gallup Area Arts Council
  • Kaiser Permenante
  • Arts Are Basic
  • University of Nebraska, Lincoln

"Out of the ashes of a cross-burning incident involving a University of Nebraska fraternity comes a play looking at racially charged issues, symbols and vocabulary. "All Tangled Up", a play directed by artist-in-residence Jeff Raz… generates discussion on issues of diversity; people leave (the play) talking and telling each other stories."
