“Like many of Goldfinger’s plays, Slip/Shot is decidedly southern gothic, with an ethereal lyricism that evokes Faulkner, McCuller, Williams.”
~ American Theatre Magazine

The Best Christmas Pageant Ever

by Barbara Robinson
directed by Emily Purington
December 13 through 24, 2014

Now in its 14th year!

The delightfully horrible Herdman clan descends on the Bathhouse for their 14th consecutive year, turning a pedestrian pageant into sidesplitting chaos and bringing new life to an old tradition. Featuring a cast of young actors alongside adult professionals, The Best Christmas Pageant Ever is the not-to-be-missed holiday favorite for kids of all ages.

“This high-energy, heartfelt show is a melee of child actors clearly having the time of their lives.”
~ A.B. Smith, Drama in the Hood

Christmastown: A Holiday Noir

by Wayne Rawley
directed by Kelly Kitchens
Preview December 4 | Opens December 5 through 24, 2014

World Premiere!

The name is Nick. Nick Holiday. Im no saint-but if you can pay me half up front I may be able to find what it is you are looking for. Unless, of course, what you are looking for is happiness. Then youre on your own. Because me? I work in Christmastown. And this story starts just like they all do with an elf.

“Although much has been written about Seattle playwright Wayne Rawley, if were lucky, it is more than a little reasonable to expect that there will be much more to say in the years ahead.”
~Jose Amador, The Seattle Star

Humble Boy

by Charlotte Jones
directed by Marcus Goodwin
Preview January 29 | Opens January 30 through February 15, 2015

2001 Critics’ Circle Theatre Award for Best New Play

Lifting liberally from Hamlet, this nimble and offbeat comedy set in an English garden estate introduces a socially awkward scientist who deftly links the cosmology of bees to black holes, but canot fathom the mysteries of love and family.

” This delightful play constructs the theatrical equivalent of a unified field theory … united Ayckbourn and Stoppard.”
~ Charles Spencer, Daily Telegraph

Slowgirl

by Greg Pierce
directed by Kelly Kitchens
Preview March 26 | Opens March 27 through April 12, 2015

Pacific Northwest Premiere

A sassy, troubled young woman is sent to visit her reclusive uncle in the jungles of Costa Rica. As each of them confront a history of scandal and poor judgement, a path is revealed to connect human frailty to personal accountability.

“A piece that simmers rather than boils throughout, it is an engaging, compassionate and well-written character study.”
~ Chris Jones, The Chicago Tribune

Talley’s Folly

by Lanford Wilson
directed by Shana Bestock
Preview May 14 | Opens May 15 through May 31, 2015

Winner of the 1980 Drama Critics’ Circle Award and 1980 Pulitzer Prize for Drama.

Two awkward and unlikely lovers reunite in Lanford Wilson’s highly acclaimed romantic comedy. Set against the bigotry, racism and wartime disillusion of rural Missouri, can a Jewish lawyer and a Protestant spinster find a way to waltz together?

“Wilson evinces a keen sympathy for men and women relegated to fete, fortune or natural inclination to the margins of life.”
~ Charles Isherwood, The New York Times
