Icicle Creek Theatre Festival and ACT Theatre have announced the selection of You For Me for You by Mia Chung and The Whale by Sam Hunter for workshops at this year's Festival. These new works will be presented at Icicle Creek Music Center in Leavenworth, WA, on Saturday, August 20, and at ACT Theatre in Seattle on Tuesday, August 23 and Wednesday, August 24.

You for Me for You explores the lives of two sisters from North Korea who escape one harsh and unforgiving reality only to enter another very foreign world, a world where a smuggler and a paper balloon can shape a woman's fate. Sheila Daniels will direct.

The Whale is a journey through the life of a small-town shut-in named Charlie, whose self-imposed exile is the result of a brutal and disturbing form of internalized homophobia. Andrew K. Russell will direct.
