Straight White Men

"In January 2018, Washington Ensemble Theatre will stage the Northwest premiere of Straight White Men. In her critically acclaimed family drama, Young Jean Lee tackles the demographic you love to hate. When three brothers gather at their father's home for Christmas, it becomes clear that they have more on their minds than the holidays. With hypocrisy, humor, and enlightened progressivism, this story explores what to do with privilege and who is to blame for it. The New York Times called Straight White Men "a compassionate and stimulating exploration of one man's existential crisis. Sara Porkalob, the 2017 Intiman Theatre Festival co-curator, will direct."

String

  • Village Theatre

On a mountaintop high over ancient Greece, three sisters – goddesses known as the Greek Fates – are responsible for spinning, measuring, and snipping the String of Life. After falling out of favor with Zeus, they find themselves stuck in a drab modern skyscraper, left to live and work among world-weary office workers and the security guards who watch over the building. But when the eldest sister falls in love with a mortal, her destiny gets all tangled up in this musical fable about fate, and the fragile fabric of the universe.

Originally part of the Village Theatre's 2016 summer festival of new works, STRING will be produced as part of Village Theatre's developmental Beta Series.
