Stone Soup Theatre Proudly Presents The Double (XX) Fest 2.0
Stone Soup celebrates the XX chromosome with a resounding bang for the second year in a row with work written and directed exclusively by women from the Seattle area and beyond! Performances will mainly take place at Stone Soup's DownStage theatre on Stone Way, with a few pre-festival readings in some well-known Fremont and Wallingford neighborhood establishments.
The first weekend will kick off the festival with a bang as we open with a Night of Solo Performance On Saturday (Apr 21) followed by our popular, late-night 24-Hour All-Female Play Festival within a Festival!
The following two weekends will showcase fully-staged, one-act plays selected from a long and arduous submission and reading process. Themes range from suicide and post-traumatic stress to cats and their unique world view:
