It is with great joy and delight that Drama in the Hood announces 18th and Union’s Portable Performance Festival, a two-and-half-week festival of Storytelling. For many years, 18th has sponsored traditional storytelling to delight audiences (and reviewers!) With sliding scale tickets this proves to be a unique experience in Seattle:

“A festival of solo storytelling and minimalist performance! As we reemerge from the pandemic, we recommit to 18th & U’s original spirit and vision, inviting a new batch of creators to share their fresh “portable” work with new and returning audiences.

This Flat Earth

Highly Topical but Highly Disappointing

Harlequin Production, in Olympia, known for excellent theatre productions addressing topical social justice issues just opened This Flat Earth, a disappointing play by Lindsey Ferrentino, directed by the Artistic Director Aaron Lamb. Although the publicity stated that the play was about the aftermath of a mass shooting in a middle school, the play verged off into so many unfocused unresolved different subplots, it was difficult to say what it was ABOUT.


Cowboys with Questions-Thoughts on a Workshop production

How the Emperor Lost his Clothes

For three more nights, Parley Productions is inviting the public to participate first in the immersive dramaturgical experience The Bacchic Rites inspired by ritual elements explored in the play, or just sit out and watch, as I did. Then watch a workshop production of Cowboys with Questions, a modern take on a Greek Tragedy by Rebecca Tourino Collinsworth. It could be subtitled: How the Emperor Lost his Clothes.
