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.

It was great to see a Shakespeare play I had never seen. The Seattle Shakespeare Company does an excellent job with all the productions we have seen.
Bred for the battlefield, the triumphant soldier Coriolanus discovers he is out of his depths when elected to the Roman Senate where the politics can be twice as treacherous as warfare. Behind his meteoric rise is his powerful mother who raised him to be a warrior of no equal. Shakespeare makes politics personal in this tragedy by plumbing the depths of emotions between mother and son, pride and patriotism, ego and honor.
SSC shows are suitable for audiences ages 12 years old and older.
