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.

If you have seen Tom Stoppard plays before then you know to expect to be confounded, confused and delighted in about equal measures. Though billed as two one act plays, they are actually related. "Cahoots's Macbeth" will make no sense without having first seen "Dogg's Hamlet" ... which is not to say that either will make any sense anyway! The cast did a wonderful job. Some jokes were perhaps carried a bit too far, but, well, this is Tom Stoppard, so that is to be expected.
This production is recommended for those ages six and older.
