Both are despondent when they learn that Viola’s father has promised her to the stuffy Lord Wessex in order to gain a title for their family. Under the veil of secrecy, Will and Viola’s passionate love affair becomes the basis of the very play he is writing – Romeo and Juliet.

In a post-apocalyptic world, environmental damage has turned air and light into poison. To appease the gods in keeping with ancestral traditions, regular “sacrifices” are made in the form of young villagers being thrown into a deep crater called the Sunless Scar, from which there is no escape. But instead of certain death, the Scar turns out to contain safety, community, and light in a way that the harsh surface never could. Should the denizens of the pit try to climb out and escape? And what exactly will they be escaping to? Join us for a thrilling speculative fiction adventure that explores how we honor ourselves and our past, and what we’re willing to risk for an uncertain future.

An ACT Young Core Company production. Written by Maggie Lee. Directed by Shana Bestock.

84 Charing Cross Road @ Olympia Little Theatre (Olympia)
Mar 8 @ 7:25 pm

The play takes place over a twenty year period, beginning in 1949 when Helene Hanff first writes Marks & Co. and ends in 1969 with the death of Frank Doel, the delightfully dusty supplier of so many old volumes to Helen who has shown her gratitude through the years by sending “care packages” to the staff of Marks & Co.

This wonderful show is a dramatization of business letters between a young struggling writer in New York and an antiquarian book store in London. In a sense, these are also love letters. They are about the love of good literature. By Helene Hanff, adapted for the stage by James Roose-Evans.

Tickets ($14-$18, depending on day) here.

 

Anyone Can Whistle – Reboot Theatre Co. @ Theatre Off Jackson (Seattle – Int. Dist.)
Mar 8 @ 7:30 pm

This wacky, intelligent, highly unconventional musical points ahead to Stephen Sondheim’s groundbreaking work in the 1970s, even as it keeps a foot firmly rooted in musical theatre’s “golden age.” Anyone Can Whistle tells the story of a corrupt mayoress who fakes a miracle to revitalize her bankrupt town, and the ill-fated romance between the rational nurse, out to expose the fraud, and the easygoing doctor who is determined to enjoy the chaos that it brings. An unconventional satire of small-town life.

Music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, book by Arthur Laurents. Directed by Jasmine Joshua, music directed by Kaelee Bolme, choreographed by Harry Turpin. Co-presented by Reboot Theatre Company and Theatre Off Jackson.

Tickets $6-$106 (sliding scale available for all) here.

The Sunless Scar @ ACT (Downtown Seattle)
Mar 9 @ 7:00 pm

In a post-apocalyptic world, environmental damage has turned air and light into poison. To appease the gods in keeping with ancestral traditions, regular “sacrifices” are made in the form of young villagers being thrown into a deep crater called the Sunless Scar, from which there is no escape. But instead of certain death, the Scar turns out to contain safety, community, and light in a way that the harsh surface never could. Should the denizens of the pit try to climb out and escape? And what exactly will they be escaping to? Join us for a thrilling speculative fiction adventure that explores how we honor ourselves and our past, and what we’re willing to risk for an uncertain future.

An ACT Young Core Company production. Written by Maggie Lee. Directed by Shana Bestock.

Mar 9 @ 7:25 pm

The play takes place over a twenty year period, beginning in 1949 when Helene Hanff first writes Marks & Co. and ends in 1969 with the death of Frank Doel, the delightfully dusty supplier of so many old volumes to Helen who has shown her gratitude through the years by sending “care packages” to the staff of Marks & Co.

This wonderful show is a dramatization of business letters between a young struggling writer in New York and an antiquarian book store in London. In a sense, these are also love letters. They are about the love of good literature. By Helene Hanff, adapted for the stage by James Roose-Evans.

Anyone Can Whistle – Reboot Theatre Co. @ Theatre Off Jackson (Seattle – Int. Dist.)
Mar 9 @ 7:30 pm

This wacky, intelligent, highly unconventional musical points ahead to Stephen Sondheim’s groundbreaking work in the 1970s, even as it keeps a foot firmly rooted in musical theatre’s “golden age.” Anyone Can Whistle tells the story of a corrupt mayoress who fakes a miracle to revitalize her bankrupt town, and the ill-fated romance between the rational nurse, out to expose the fraud, and the easygoing doctor who is determined to enjoy the chaos that it brings. An unconventional satire of small-town life.

Music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, book by Arthur Laurents. Directed by Jasmine Joshua, music directed by Kaelee Bolme, choreographed by Harry Turpin. Co-presented by Reboot Theatre Company and Theatre Off Jackson.

Tickets $6-$106 (sliding scale available for all) here.
