The perfect fit for Seattle's only one-act company, 2010's festival brings 17 short, original scripts to the DownStage, including Crazy Eddy by Bob Canning, 1st-place winner of Le Petit Theatre's Playwriting Contest in Louisiana, Perspectives by former Seattle Weekly critic John Longenbaugh and the chuckle-inducing Clothing Optional by James Lyle, raising questions about gender double-standards where nudity is concerned. From epic absurdity to the comically criminal and just about everything in between, audiences will experience themes ranging from destruction and plagiarism to birthday suits and second chances.
Set in the DownStage in mid-May, audiences will enjoy a selection of 10 scripts per show selected from over 300 submissions, both local and national, featuring the playwriting talents of Bob Canning, Dustin Engstrom, Barbara M. Harkness, Andrew R. Heinze, Vincent Kovar, John Longenbaugh, James Lyle, Joe W. Marciniak, James E. Marlow, Scotto Moore, Tom Moran, Lavinia Roberts, Rich Rubin, Peter Snoad and Carolynne Wilcox. Please be aware that due to adult content and both male and female nudity, parental discretion is advised.
