Though The New York Times compared it (glowingly) to Chinatown, the city beneath the web of intrigue spun by author Jim Lynch in his latest novel Truth Like the Sun is Seattle, as intriguing and mysterious as ever. Now Book-It Repertory Theatre adapts Lynch's widely-celebrated novel into an engrossing and thrilling stage play. In the early '60s, Roger Morgan was Seattle's golden boy, the man who sketched the design for the Space Needle on a napkin. Nearly 40 years later, he's still as charming as ever and now wants to be mayor. But his dreams might falter thanks to an unscrupulous young reporter, sniffing for dirt and stopping at nothing to find it. Jane Jones directs an adaptation by Kevin McKeon at the Centre Theatre.

I liked the play as much as the book! The cast was outstanding.
Quotes & Highlights
“A fascinating look at the confluence of small-town life, the global drug trade and illegal immigration, and it places Jim Lynch at the forefront of Northwest writers to watch.” —_Willamette Week _
“Brandon Vanderkool, [is] the most fascinating, memorable, and human character in American fiction since Ignatius J. Reilly of A Confederacy of Dunces … Border Songs is a masterwork, and Jim Lynch, for my money, is our best new storyteller since Larry McMurtry: deeply in touch with the natural world, the absurdities of our era, and the hearts and minds of his unforgettable and endlessly surprising characters.” —Howard Frank Mosher, author
