    San Francisco: Rare Angel. Printed by The Bindweed Press, 1965. One sheet, 11 x 8.5 inches, printed in red and blue ink. Play starred Richard Bright & Billie Dixon (the original cast). The play premiered at the Actor's Workshop in San Francisco December 18, 1965, with a second performance at Bill Graham's Fillmore Auditorium on July 24. 1966. The following month the play opened at the Committee, a theater nightclub in North Beach. At the end of the play the San Francisco Police Depatment arrested Dixon and Bright. The American Civil Liberties Union took the case and represented the actors. Twelve days after the arrests, the play was performed at The Florence Schwimley Little Theatre, in Berkeley. The audience included more than a hundred ACLU-invited expert witnesses, including political activists, academics, writers and even members of the clergy. Seven members of the Berkeley Police Department and the District Attorney's office were also present. Five days later, the city of Berkeley brought its own charges of "lewd or dissolute conduct" against the play. It became a theatrical cause célèbre, until finally, after months of legal deliberation, Judge Joseph Karesh of the San Francisco Superior Court ruled that while the play did contain material of a troublesome nature, it was not appropriate to prosecute such work under the law. All the charges were dropped and the subsequent appeal lost. ISBN: 281AIB1048726.
