The Seattle Playwrights' Collective (SPC) is launching our most ambitious project yet.
For the past three years, we have gradually been growing our Page to Stage Showcase from a staged reading event to a fully produced festival of short plays by Puget Sound region playwrights. On February 3, 2012 at the Ethnic Cultural Center, we'll unveil the latest edition of the showcase "Timepieces" nine short plays written on the theme of time.
Featuring local playwrights John C. Davenport, Steve Gins, Leonard Goodisman, Craig Kenworthy Morgan Ludlow, Keith McGregor, Elena Naskova, Catherine Cole Rogers, and Daniel Tarker, "Timepieces" offers theatregoers an evening of comedies, dramas, and experimental pieces that explore various aspects of this theme of time from scientific concepts like evolution, time travel, and the theory of parallel universes to more human angles like redemption, young love, and mortality.
"We want to create a short play festival like Seattle audiences have never seen before," says SPC artistic director Daniel Tarker. "Not only did we want a unified theme to tie the pieces together, but we also want to make this a real event complete with ambitious directors, a professional design team, and a live band to play pre-show music and underscore transitions."
Best of all, audiences will be supporting local artists nine playwrights, five directors, fourteen actors, and four musicians as we launch this audacious venture.
All directors for "Timepieces" were recruited from theatre companies operating in the Seattle region like Roy Arauz (Arouet), Danielle Villegas (ese Teatro), Morgan Ludlow (Pacific Play Company), Lindsey Byrne (Seattle Rep), and Daniel Tarker (Seattle Playwrights' Collective).
The design team includes Kim Rosin (Sets), Anastasia Armes (Costumes), Theodore Michael Dolas (Lights), (Laura Goodwin (Stage Management), and Jenna Vetach (Choreography).
"Timepieces" plays Feb 3 11 at the Ethnic Cultural Center, 3940 Brooklyn Avenue. Performances are Fridays and Saturdays at 8 pm with music beginning at 7:30 pm and Sunday at 2 pm with music beginning at 1:30 pm. Seats can be reserved through Brown Paper Tickets.
