Conrad Bishop and Elizabeth Fuller of Sebastopol will celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary and their five decades of partnership in theater this weekend.

They’ll launch their new memoir, “Co-Creation: Fifty Years in the Making,” with a free reading and performance party at the Sebastopol Masonic Center, 373 N. Main St., on Sunday, Aug. 14.

The reception starts at 3 p.m., followed by the reading at 4 p.m.

Bishop and Fuller transplanted their theater ensemble, The Independent Eye, from Philadelphia to Sebastopol in 1999.

Since then, they have produced a series of new plays, including collaborations with Cinnabar Theatre, Sonoma County Rep, Shotgun Players and others.

For four years, they hosted the radio series “Hitchhiking Off the Map” on KPFA and KRCB.

The book traces their 50 years of marriage, and their collaboration as performers, playwrights, radio producers and puppeteers.
