When frenemy nail techs Cha-Cha and Katie are privileged to hear a favorite customer’s bizarre dying wish, they set off to make it come true — and learn that success is relative but friendship doesn’t have to be. Written by Donna Hoke, directed by Castor Rosencrantz Kent.
Location: West of Lenin (203 N 36th St)
The Macha Distillery series is a celebration of emerging theater and an opportunity for playwrights to gain valuable feedback on new work. Each play in the series receives a live reading by a cast of professional actors, allowing it to live and breathe off the page. The readings conclude with a discussion of the play with the playwright, giving writers the chance to receive feedback from Seattle audiences and providing a platform for audiences to help shape new works in process.
This year Macha’s Distillery readings are held in festival form: 7 plays, 3 days, 1 New Works Reading Festival. Full schedule:
