About This Show

Island Shakespeare Festival (ISF) and Whidbey Island Center for the Arts (WICA) present the first ever Whidbey Repertory Festival (WRP) which will take place over the course of two weekends in March (March 16-26) and will feature three solo shows by theater artists from around the world.

The Book of Sirens was created by the Art Shelter/ProEnglish Theatre company who transformed their theater space into a bomb shelter in March 2022 when Russian forces began the attack on Ukraine one year ago. (A screening)

I Am Playing Me by Hannah Fontes is a cabaret with musical theater songs and stories from Fontes’ life as a young woman in 2023: including love, loss, boyfriends, best friends, mammas, tears, and laughter.

The third offering of the WRF is Thoreau at Home written by poet and novelist David Wagoner, directed by Richard E.T. White and performed by Todd Jefferson Moore. This play imagines a time two years before Thoreau’s early death from tuberculosis.
