Description

January 18, 2012 – February 12, 2012: All Through the Night

by Shirley Lauro

Seattle Premiere

A highly theatrical depiction of four German, gentile, women fighting to manage their lives through the rise and fall of Adolph Hitler. This Jefferson-nominated Best New Chicago Play of 2006, is based on actual interviews with women who navigated the landscape of fascism from the inside. “A significant and intensely moving new work by a proven Broadway playwright, with enough daring to look at the polarities of war, with a strong sense of the complexity of human limitations.” —Chris Jones, Chicago Tribune (Recommended for ages 13 and older)

March 7, 2012 – March 31, 2012: The Rise and Fall of Little Voice

by Jim Cartwright

In a working class town in Northern England, Mari Hoff is desperate for the elixir that will make her feel alive. And she’s not the only one. Her teenage daughter, LV is a shut in who lives by the light of the records left by her father. Turns out she’s a prodigy who can perfectly imitate the great vocalists she loves. Enter a seedy talent agent with big plans for Little Voice’s future, and a quiet young phone man with his own electric dreams, and you have a delirious burst of light to lift us all. (Recommended for ages 16 and older)

April 18 – May 13, 2012:__ Exit, Pursued by a Bear__

by Lauren Guderson

World Premiere

From the author of last season’s provocative and sensual, Emilie, comes a new, razor-sharp comedy. “I Love Lucy” meets Jacobean revenge tragedy. Nan Carter is a woman at the end of her rope. She’s married to underemployed, deer-huntin, Jack-guzzlin’ Kyle, who’s turned into nothing but a constant source of pain—in more ways than she cares to count. Inspired by her friends and a compelling stage direction from Shakespeare, Nan sets out to teach Kyle the ultimate lesson. (Recommended for ages 16 and older)
