After a hugely successful run in the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Los Angeles and New York, "Tilda Swinton Answers an Ad on Craigslist" returns to the Bay Area for an encore after premiering in SF Sketchfest last year.

And actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt tweeted: "Hilarious, clever, uplifting... highly recommend."
