    Senior year (and falling in love) is hard enough, but when the discovery of her mother’s old trophy throws open the locked doors of the past, a young girl must reckon with a world turned upside down – and the arrival of strange new abilities that seem to hint at a destiny beyond her wildest imaginations.

    815 Seattle Blvd S, Seattle, WA 98134, USA

    (Thru 7/7)

    by Jordan Pulliam

    What if Shakespeare had conceived the melancholy Dane as a costumed crime fighter? Bat-Hamlet tells the tale of a Dark Knight that emerges from betwixt the pages of Shakespeare to exact revenge on his murderous uncle, King Jester. 

    Once resolved to avenge beloved King Police Commissioner Gordrick's death, Hamlet dons the persona of Bat-Hamlet, a flashier and much cooler version of his brooding youth.   

    The world of comic books and the Bard of Avon come together in this hilarious mash-up. It’s a tale of murder, revenge, poetry and BAM! SOCK! POW!  Fans of Shakespeare and Batman, alike, will love being immersed in the maddening spiral of these iconic characters. After all, madness in great ones must not unwatched go.

    Trinity Parish Hall
    609 8th Ave, Seattle, WA 98104, USA

    Thru 7/28 

    by Ariel Dorfman 
    Directed by Paul O'Connell 

    Death and the Maiden is a heart-racing thriller about a woman suddenly confronted with the abuser of her past. Ripped apart by two loyalties, her husband struggles to resolve his wifes and his guests testimony. Through their dynamic confrontations, playwright Ariel Dorfman challenges audience members with insights into the machinations of humanity in politics, questions of memory vs. madness, the uncertainty of truth, and the conflict of how to serve justice when revenge and restitution invade passions.

    Dorfman imagined his award-winning play, Death and the Maiden, set in any country that has given itself a democratic government just after a long period of dictatorship. Theatre 9/12 stages it in the present crisis of an illusory but recognizably familiar country.

    Measure for Measure @ various parks (Primrose Players) ($)

    Saturday Jul 6
    6 pm - 8 pm

    Various parks

    (Thru 7/27)

    by William Shakespeare 
    Directed by Sofia Rybin 

    The tempter or the tempted, who sins most?   

    The price tag on morality is steep at times.   

    Primrose Players presents William Shakespeares Measure for Measure, a modern take on Shakespeares problem play.

    The Duke, finding himself unable to exercise the law to its capacity and suffering a crisis of faith, leaves Vienna in the hands of his dogmatic, ruthless deputy. In his quest to clean up the city and reinstitute a moral code, he arrests a young man for a common crime; the man's sister, about to enter the convent, goes before the deputy to plead for his life. Morality is tempted, challenged and subverted. 

    What is the cost of justice? Does an eye for an eye make the whole world blind? At what cost do we seek forgiveness? Reconciliation? This year's production is a timely play that points the finger at the powerful and reflects on the corrupting nature of power itself.

    Free; donations accepted.

    NOTE: Various locations, mostly outdoor. Reservations & info here:

    609 8th Ave, Seattle, WA 98104, USA

    Thru 7/28 

    by Ariel Dorfman 
    Directed by Paul O'Connell 

    Death and the Maiden is a heart-racing thriller about a woman suddenly confronted with the abuser of her past. Ripped apart by two loyalties, her husband struggles to resolve his wifes and his guests testimony. Through their dynamic confrontations, playwright Ariel Dorfman challenges audience members with insights into the machinations of humanity in politics, questions of memory vs. madness, the uncertainty of truth, and the conflict of how to serve justice when revenge and restitution invade passions.

    Dorfman imagined his award-winning play, Death and the Maiden, set in any country that has given itself a democratic government just after a long period of dictatorship. Theatre 9/12 stages it in the present crisis of an illusory but recognizably familiar country.

    (Thru 7/27)

    by William Shakespeare 
    Directed by Sofia Rybin 

    The tempter or the tempted, who sins most?   

    The price tag on morality is steep at times.   

    Primrose Players presents William Shakespeares Measure for Measure, a modern take on Shakespeares problem play.

    The Duke, finding himself unable to exercise the law to its capacity and suffering a crisis of faith, leaves Vienna in the hands of his dogmatic, ruthless deputy. In his quest to clean up the city and reinstitute a moral code, he arrests a young man for a common crime; the man's sister, about to enter the convent, goes before the deputy to plead for his life. Morality is tempted, challenged and subverted. 

    What is the cost of justice? Does an eye for an eye make the whole world blind? At what cost do we seek forgiveness? Reconciliation? This year's production is a timely play that points the finger at the powerful and reflects on the corrupting nature of power itself.

    Free; donations accepted.

    Despite bearing the statistical brunt of the country’s HIV/AIDS epidemic, Black LGBTQ people and stories have yet to secure the rightful seat at the collective HIV/AIDS narrative table. They are left with only two options: wait for an invitation that is never coming, or answer the call of ancestor Marlon Riggs, who said, “When nobody speaks your name or even knows it, you, knowing it, must be the first to speak it.” Hear these accounts from Black voices in LGBTQ communities July 11-13.

    By Claudia Rankine
    Adapted by Stephen Sachs
    Directed by Jay O'Leary

    A co-production of Sound Theatre Company & The Hansberry Project

    Claudia Rankine's Citizen is a searing, multi-media poetic riff on race in America. The stage adaptation fuses prose, poetry, movement, music, video, news, and the visual image, to present snapshots, vignettes, on the acts of everyday racism. Some of these encounters are slights, seeming slips of the tongue, and some are intentional offensives in the classroom, at the supermarket, at home, on the tennis court with Serena Williams, online, on TV-everywhere, all the time. Those did-that-really-just-happen-did-they-really-just-say-that slurs that happen every day and enrage in the moment and later steep poisonously in the mind. And, of course, those larger incidents that become national or international firestorms. As Rankine writes, 'This is how you are a citizen.'

How El Dorado found themselves out running the law, robbing corner stores at gunpoint, and seducing their unsuspecting victims while in high heels, fishnets, and nail polish are things legends are made of.

    (Thru 7/27)

    by William Shakespeare 
    Directed by Sofia Rybin 

    The tempter or the tempted, who sins most?   

    The price tag on morality is steep at times.   

    Primrose Players presents William Shakespeares Measure for Measure, a modern take on Shakespeares problem play.

    The Duke, finding himself unable to exercise the law to its capacity and suffering a crisis of faith, leaves Vienna in the hands of his dogmatic, ruthless deputy. In his quest to clean up the city and reinstitute a moral code, he arrests a young man for a common crime; the man's sister, about to enter the convent, goes before the deputy to plead for his life. Morality is tempted, challenged and subverted. 

    What is the cost of justice? Does an eye for an eye make the whole world blind? At what cost do we seek forgiveness? Reconciliation? This year's production is a timely play that points the finger at the powerful and reflects on the corrupting nature of power itself.

    Free; donations accepted.

    by Ariel Dorfman 
    Directed by Paul O'Connell 

    Death and the Maiden is a heart-racing thriller about a woman suddenly confronted with the abuser of her past. Ripped apart by two loyalties, her husband struggles to resolve his wifes and his guests testimony. Through their dynamic confrontations, playwright Ariel Dorfman challenges audience members with insights into the machinations of humanity in politics, questions of memory vs. madness, the uncertainty of truth, and the conflict of how to serve justice when revenge and restitution invade passions.

    Dorfman imagined his award-winning play, Death and the Maiden, set in any country that has given itself a democratic government just after a long period of dictatorship. Theatre 9/12 stages it in the present crisis of an illusory but recognizably familiar country.

    Measure for Measure @ various parks (Primrose Players) ($)

    Saturday Jul 13
    7 pm - 9 pm

    Various parks

    (Thru 7/27)

    by William Shakespeare 
    Directed by Sofia Rybin 

    The tempter or the tempted, who sins most?   

    The price tag on morality is steep at times.   

    Primrose Players presents William Shakespeares Measure for Measure, a modern take on Shakespeares problem play.

    The Duke, finding himself unable to exercise the law to its capacity and suffering a crisis of faith, leaves Vienna in the hands of his dogmatic, ruthless deputy. In his quest to clean up the city and reinstitute a moral code, he arrests a young man for a common crime; the man's sister, about to enter the convent, goes before the deputy to plead for his life. Morality is tempted, challenged and subverted. 

    What is the cost of justice? Does an eye for an eye make the whole world blind? At what cost do we seek forgiveness? Reconciliation? This year's production is a timely play that points the finger at the powerful and reflects on the corrupting nature of power itself.

    Free; donations accepted.

    by Ariel Dorfman 
    Directed by Paul O'Connell 

    Death and the Maiden is a heart-racing thriller about a woman suddenly confronted with the abuser of her past. Ripped apart by two loyalties, her husband struggles to resolve his wifes and his guests testimony. Through their dynamic confrontations, playwright Ariel Dorfman challenges audience members with insights into the machinations of humanity in politics, questions of memory vs. madness, the uncertainty of truth, and the conflict of how to serve justice when revenge and restitution invade passions.

    Dorfman imagined his award-winning play, Death and the Maiden, set in any country that has given itself a democratic government just after a long period of dictatorship. Theatre 9/12 stages it in the present crisis of an illusory but recognizably familiar country.

    By Claudia Rankine
    Adapted by Stephen Sachs
    Directed by Jay O'Leary

    A co-production of Sound Theatre Company & The Hansberry Project

    Claudia Rankine's Citizen is a searing, multi-media poetic riff on race in America. The stage adaptation fuses prose, poetry, movement, music, video, news, and the visual image, to present snapshots, vignettes, on the acts of everyday racism. Some of these encounters are slights, seeming slips of the tongue, and some are intentional offensives in the classroom, at the supermarket, at home, on the tennis court with Serena Williams, online, on TV-everywhere, all the time. Those did-that-really-just-happen-did-they-really-just-say-that slurs that happen every day and enrage in the moment and later steep poisonously in the mind. And, of course, those larger incidents that become national or international firestorms. As Rankine writes, 'This is how you are a citizen.'

    609 8th Ave, Seattle, WA 98104, USA

    Thru 7/28 

    by Ariel Dorfman 
    Directed by Paul O'Connell 

    Death and the Maiden is a heart-racing thriller about a woman suddenly confronted with the abuser of her past. Ripped apart by two loyalties, her husband struggles to resolve his wifes and his guests testimony. Through their dynamic confrontations, playwright Ariel Dorfman challenges audience members with insights into the machinations of humanity in politics, questions of memory vs. madness, the uncertainty of truth, and the conflict of how to serve justice when revenge and restitution invade passions.

    Dorfman imagined his award-winning play, Death and the Maiden, set in any country that has given itself a democratic government just after a long period of dictatorship. Theatre 9/12 stages it in the present crisis of an illusory but recognizably familiar country.

    Center Theatre (Seattle Center Armory)
    305 Harrison St, Seattle, WA 98109, USA

    (Thru 7/28)

    By Claudia Rankine
    Adapted by Stephen Sachs
    Directed by Jay O'Leary

    A co-production of Sound Theatre Company & The Hansberry Project

    Claudia Rankine's Citizen is a searing, multi-media poetic riff on race in America. The stage adaptation fuses prose, poetry, movement, music, video, news, and the visual image, to present snapshots, vignettes, on the acts of everyday racism. Some of these encounters are slights, seeming slips of the tongue, and some are intentional offensives in the classroom, at the supermarket, at home, on the tennis court with Serena Williams, online, on TV-everywhere, all the time. Those did-that-really-just-happen-did-they-really-just-say-that slurs that happen every day and enrage in the moment and later steep poisonously in the mind. And, of course, those larger incidents that become national or international firestorms. As Rankine writes, 'This is how you are a citizen.'

    It’s a SH*T GOLD marathon!

    Every summer, Sh*t Gold opens up the floor for long-form performance events up to 15 minutes in length. Like at any Sh*t Gold, your performance may be in any live medium and in any stage of development. We encourage raw works-in-progress, presented in the spirit of experimentation and risk. Dive into The Deep End as a resource for your creative process. 

    You might take the time to: Show a 5-minute work. Show a 10-minute work. Show an 11-minute work. Present that epic 15-minute thing you’ve been working on. Build an installation for 10 minutes, lead the audience through it for 2 minutes, and tear it down and load it out in the remaining time. Stage a 10-minute scene and follow it with an 5-minute Q&A or work-shopping session. Start a community discussion about performance. Slip 15 one-minute performances throughout the night’s other performances. You also don’t have to take anywhere near 15 minutes – your use of time is your prerogative and limited only by your imagination.

    We only ask that you do no lasting harm to yourself, others, or the space. Please note that while you may bring in any number of technical components, this is a low-tech to no-tech showcase with Velocity providing one standard lighting set-up and access to a sound system. If you have technical aspects you would like to incorporate, please contact gold@velocitydancecenter.org to work out the details.

    Theatre Off Jackson
    409 7th Ave S, Seattle, WA 98104, USA

    (Thru 7/21)

    by Susan Lieu 
    Directed by Sara Porkalob 

    Two hours into surgery, Susan’s mother loses oxygen to her brain and the plastic surgeon deliberately does not call 9-1-1 for fourteen minutes. Five days later, while in a coma, she flatlines. The surgeon is charged with medical negligence and her family falls apart; no one talks about what happened. Nineteen years later on her wedding day, Susan’s mother’s seat sits empty and Susan realizes she can no longer ignore what she’s always wanted: to know who her mother was. Sifting through thousands of deposition pages and reaching out to the killer’s family, Susan uncovers the painful truth of her mother, herself, and the impossible ideal of Vietnamese feminine beauty.

The musical has been revived four times on Broadway, becoming one of the most enduring works of musical theatre.

    305 Harrison St, Seattle, WA 98109, USA

    (Thru 7/28)

    By Claudia Rankine
    Adapted by Stephen Sachs
    Directed by Jay O'Leary

    A co-production of Sound Theatre Company & The Hansberry Project

    Claudia Rankine's Citizen is a searing, multi-media poetic riff on race in America. The stage adaptation fuses prose, poetry, movement, music, video, news, and the visual image, to present snapshots, vignettes, on the acts of everyday racism. Some of these encounters are slights, seeming slips of the tongue, and some are intentional offensives in the classroom, at the supermarket, at home, on the tennis court with Serena Williams, online, on TV-everywhere, all the time. Those did-that-really-just-happen-did-they-really-just-say-that slurs that happen every day and enrage in the moment and later steep poisonously in the mind. And, of course, those larger incidents that become national or international firestorms. As Rankine writes, 'This is how you are a citizen.'

    Measure for Measure @ various parks (Primrose Players) ($)

    Various parks

    (Thru 7/27)

    by William Shakespeare 
    Directed by Sofia Rybin 

    The tempter or the tempted, who sins most?   

    The price tag on morality is steep at times.   

    Primrose Players presents William Shakespeares Measure for Measure, a modern take on Shakespeares problem play.

    The Duke, finding himself unable to exercise the law to its capacity and suffering a crisis of faith, leaves Vienna in the hands of his dogmatic, ruthless deputy. In his quest to clean up the city and reinstitute a moral code, he arrests a young man for a common crime; the man's sister, about to enter the convent, goes before the deputy to plead for his life. Morality is tempted, challenged and subverted. 

    What is the cost of justice? Does an eye for an eye make the whole world blind? At what cost do we seek forgiveness? Reconciliation? This year's production is a timely play that points the finger at the powerful and reflects on the corrupting nature of power itself.

    Free; donations accepted.

And the men -- including her promised fiancé, Prince Hilarion -- are not taking it well. What follows is a hilarious adventure as The Prince and his friends try to win back their betrothed before war breaks out between the antiquated men of the kingdom and the warrior maidens of Castle Adamant. Surprises, twists, and turns abound as disguises are revealed, hearts are laid bare, and magic is unleashed at Castle Adamant!

    by Ariel Dorfman 
    Directed by Paul O'Connell 

    Death and the Maiden is a heart-racing thriller about a woman suddenly confronted with the abuser of her past. Ripped apart by two loyalties, her husband struggles to resolve his wifes and his guests testimony. Through their dynamic confrontations, playwright Ariel Dorfman challenges audience members with insights into the machinations of humanity in politics, questions of memory vs. madness, the uncertainty of truth, and the conflict of how to serve justice when revenge and restitution invade passions.

    Dorfman imagined his award-winning play, Death and the Maiden, set in any country that has given itself a democratic government just after a long period of dictatorship. Theatre 9/12 stages it in the present crisis of an illusory but recognizably familiar country.

    Seattle Repertory Theatre (Bagley)
    155 Mercer St, Seattle, WA 98109, USA

    (Thru 7/28) 

    Directed by Crystal Dawn Munkers

    An updated take on the battle of the sexes, complete with operatic warrior maidens, a cross-dressing trio of dandies, and a bit of magic.   

    The brilliant, assertive Princess Ida has sequestered herself and her court in the Castle Adamant, dedicating themselves to the study of the higher arts and absolutely, utterly forswearing the company of men. And the men -- including her promised fiancé, Prince Hilarion -- are not taking it well. What follows is a hilarious adventure as The Prince and his friends try to win back their betrothed before war breaks out between the antiquated men of the kingdom and the warrior maidens of Castle Adamant. Surprises, twists, and turns abound as disguises are revealed, hearts are laid bare, and magic is unleashed at Castle Adamant!

    Citizen: An American Lyric @ Center Theatre (Sound Theatre) ($$)

    2 pm - 4 pm

    Center Theatre (Seattle Center Armory)
    305 Harrison St, Seattle, WA 98109, USA

    (Thru 7/28)

    By Claudia Rankine
    Adapted by Stephen Sachs
    Directed by Jay O'Leary

    A co-production of Sound Theatre Company & The Hansberry Project

    Claudia Rankine's Citizen is a searing, multi-media poetic riff on race in America. The stage adaptation fuses prose, poetry, movement, music, video, news, and the visual image, to present snapshots, vignettes, on the acts of everyday racism. Some of these encounters are slights, seeming slips of the tongue, and some are intentional offensives in the classroom, at the supermarket, at home, on the tennis court with Serena Williams, online, on TV-everywhere, all the time. Those did-that-really-just-happen-did-they-really-just-say-that slurs that happen every day and enrage in the moment and later steep poisonously in the mind. And, of course, those larger incidents that become national or international firestorms. As Rankine writes, 'This is how you are a citizen.'

    Measure for Measure @ various parks (Primrose Players) ($)

    Saturday Jul 20
    6 pm - 8 pm

    Various parks

    (Thru 7/27)

    by William Shakespeare 
    Directed by Sofia Rybin 

    The tempter or the tempted, who sins most?   

    The price tag on morality is steep at times.   

    Primrose Players presents William Shakespeares Measure for Measure, a modern take on Shakespeares problem play.

    The Duke, finding himself unable to exercise the law to its capacity and suffering a crisis of faith, leaves Vienna in the hands of his dogmatic, ruthless deputy. In his quest to clean up the city and reinstitute a moral code, he arrests a young man for a common crime; the man's sister, about to enter the convent, goes before the deputy to plead for his life. Morality is tempted, challenged and subverted. 

    What is the cost of justice? Does an eye for an eye make the whole world blind? At what cost do we seek forgiveness? Reconciliation? This year's production is a timely play that points the finger at the powerful and reflects on the corrupting nature of power itself.

    Free; donations accepted.

    Directed by Sara Porkalob 

    Two hours into surgery, Susan’s mother loses oxygen to her brain and the plastic surgeon deliberately does not call 9-1-1 for fourteen minutes. Five days later, while in a coma, she flatlines. The surgeon is charged with medical negligence and her family falls apart; no one talks about what happened. Nineteen years later on her wedding day, Susan’s mother’s seat sits empty and Susan realizes she can no longer ignore what she’s always wanted: to know who her mother was. Sifting through thousands of deposition pages and reaching out to the killer’s family, Susan uncovers the painful truth of her mother, herself, and the impossible ideal of Vietnamese feminine beauty.

    by Ariel Dorfman 
    Directed by Paul O'Connell 

    Death and the Maiden is a heart-racing thriller about a woman suddenly confronted with the abuser of her past. Ripped apart by two loyalties, her husband struggles to resolve his wifes and his guests testimony. Through their dynamic confrontations, playwright Ariel Dorfman challenges audience members with insights into the machinations of humanity in politics, questions of memory vs. madness, the uncertainty of truth, and the conflict of how to serve justice when revenge and restitution invade passions.

    Dorfman imagined his award-winning play, Death and the Maiden, set in any country that has given itself a democratic government just after a long period of dictatorship. Theatre 9/12 stages it in the present crisis of an illusory but recognizably familiar country.

Through their dynamic confrontations, playwright Ariel Dorfman challenges audience members with insights into the machinations of humanity in politics, questions of memory vs. madness, the uncertainty of truth, and the conflict of how to serve justice when revenge and restitution invade passions.

    Dorfman imagined his award-winning play, Death and the Maiden, set in any country that has given itself a democratic government just after a long period of dictatorship. Theatre 9/12 stages it in the present crisis of an illusory but recognizably familiar country.

    By Claudia Rankine
    Adapted by Stephen Sachs
    Directed by Jay O'Leary

    A co-production of Sound Theatre Company & The Hansberry Project

    Claudia Rankine's Citizen is a searing, multi-media poetic riff on race in America. The stage adaptation fuses prose, poetry, movement, music, video, news, and the visual image, to present snapshots, vignettes, on the acts of everyday racism. Some of these encounters are slights, seeming slips of the tongue, and some are intentional offensives in the classroom, at the supermarket, at home, on the tennis court with Serena Williams, online, on TV-everywhere, all the time. Those did-that-really-just-happen-did-they-really-just-say-that slurs that happen every day and enrage in the moment and later steep poisonously in the mind. And, of course, those larger incidents that become national or international firestorms. As Rankine writes, 'This is how you are a citizen.'

    By Claudia Rankine
    Adapted by Stephen Sachs
    Directed by Jay O'Leary

    A co-production of Sound Theatre Company & The Hansberry Project

    Claudia Rankine's Citizen is a searing, multi-media poetic riff on race in America. The stage adaptation fuses prose, poetry, movement, music, video, news, and the visual image, to present snapshots, vignettes, on the acts of everyday racism. Some of these encounters are slights, seeming slips of the tongue, and some are intentional offensives in the classroom, at the supermarket, at home, on the tennis court with Serena Williams, online, on TV-everywhere, all the time. Those did-that-really-just-happen-did-they-really-just-say-that slurs that happen every day and enrage in the moment and later steep poisonously in the mind. And, of course, those larger incidents that become national or international firestorms. As Rankine writes, 'This is how you are a citizen.'

Experience the excitement as 8 directors and 12 actors take those same writer's words and bring them to life! Funny, heartfelt, dramatic, scary, goofy...who knows? 

    All of the 8 pieces will be presented every performance, and audience members vote for their favorite. At the end of the final performance on Sunday, the winner of the Audience Favorite Award will be announced.

    *The Kenmore Mural Project (KMP) was created by Gaul Culley and Staci Adman in association with St. Vincent de Paul. It can be found at 7304 Bothell Way NE on the side of their building. Each playwright will be randomly assigned a portion of the mural as their specific prompt. So go check it out!

    by Ariel Dorfman 
    Directed by Paul O'Connell 

    Death and the Maiden is a heart-racing thriller about a woman suddenly confronted with the abuser of her past. Ripped apart by two loyalties, her husband struggles to resolve his wifes and his guests testimony. Through their dynamic confrontations, playwright Ariel Dorfman challenges audience members with insights into the machinations of humanity in politics, questions of memory vs. madness, the uncertainty of truth, and the conflict of how to serve justice when revenge and restitution invade passions.

    Dorfman imagined his award-winning play, Death and the Maiden, set in any country that has given itself a democratic government just after a long period of dictatorship. Theatre 9/12 stages it in the present crisis of an illusory but recognizably familiar country.

    Various parks

    (Thru 7/27)

    by William Shakespeare 
    Directed by Sofia Rybin 

    The tempter or the tempted, who sins most?   

    The price tag on morality is steep at times.   

    Primrose Players presents William Shakespeares Measure for Measure, a modern take on Shakespeares problem play.

    The Duke, finding himself unable to exercise the law to its capacity and suffering a crisis of faith, leaves Vienna in the hands of his dogmatic, ruthless deputy. In his quest to clean up the city and reinstitute a moral code, he arrests a young man for a common crime; the man's sister, about to enter the convent, goes before the deputy to plead for his life. Morality is tempted, challenged and subverted. 

    What is the cost of justice? Does an eye for an eye make the whole world blind? At what cost do we seek forgiveness? Reconciliation? This year's production is a timely play that points the finger at the powerful and reflects on the corrupting nature of power itself.

    Free; donations accepted.

    Death and the Maiden is a heart-racing thriller about a woman suddenly confronted with the abuser of her past. Ripped apart by two loyalties, her husband struggles to resolve his wifes and his guests testimony. Through their dynamic confrontations, playwright Ariel Dorfman challenges audience members with insights into the machinations of humanity in politics, questions of memory vs. madness, the uncertainty of truth, and the conflict of how to serve justice when revenge and restitution invade passions.

    Dorfman imagined his award-winning play, Death and the Maiden, set in any country that has given itself a democratic government just after a long period of dictatorship. Theatre 9/12 stages it in the present crisis of an illusory but recognizably familiar country.

    By Claudia Rankine
    Adapted by Stephen Sachs
    Directed by Jay O'Leary

    A co-production of Sound Theatre Company & The Hansberry Project

    Claudia Rankine's Citizen is a searing, multi-media poetic riff on race in America. The stage adaptation fuses prose, poetry, movement, music, video, news, and the visual image, to present snapshots, vignettes, on the acts of everyday racism. Some of these encounters are slights, seeming slips of the tongue, and some are intentional offensives in the classroom, at the supermarket, at home, on the tennis court with Serena Williams, online, on TV-everywhere, all the time. Those did-that-really-just-happen-did-they-really-just-say-that slurs that happen every day and enrage in the moment and later steep poisonously in the mind. And, of course, those larger incidents that become national or international firestorms. As Rankine writes, 'This is how you are a citizen.'

    Prepare yourself for a sumptuous evening of Decadent Delights! A new owner arrives at the spiegeltent hoping his unique brand of culinary magic will add a new twist to the dining experience. Joining him is a world-renowned chef who literally brings a new spin to the way guests experience the cuisine, while the larger-than-life service staff presents more of a challenge than the owner is prepared for. With the help of Madame ZinZanni, the Maestro will need to find the perfect combination of ingredients that will lead to a recipe for success. Returning to the tent is ZinZanni's own comedic chameleon, Kevin Kent, and who will be joined by vocal powerhouse Maiya Sykes of Postmodern Jukebox and The Voice fame.
