Lilith Theater, the Bay Area’s internationally renowned women’s theater of the 1970s and 1980s, was founded in Berkeley, California in 1974, by Terry Baum, Charlotte Colavin, and Shelley Fields and Carolyn Meyers.

Moving to San Francisco in 1976 and continuing through 1985, Lilith Theater produced many collectively created original plays: Good Food, Moonlighting, Sacrifices and Exit the Maids.

They also produced plays by women playwrights: Pizza, by Michele Linfante, Manifesto by Dacia Marani, The Daughters of Erin, by Carolyn Myers and Elizabeth Roden

A touring company at European and American Theater Festivals, Lilith Theater also gave an impromptu performance during a ferry strike, and was caught in the Mt. St. Helens eruption!

Now, after a hiatus of a few decades, Terry Baum and Carolyn Meyers have created Lilith Theater San Francisco and return to the Bay Area theater scene with its production of Terry Baum’s solo play:  Hick: A Love Story.  Written by Terry Baum & Pat Bond
