Soft Click of a Switch
West of Lenin
Seattle, WA
Share this event:

MAP Theatre presents a darkly comic platonic love story about two strangers, Ed and Earl. Young and unpredictable, Ed wants to Do Something Big And Important by leaving a permanent mark on the world, while the middle-aged Earl wants nothing more than to forget everything. With instructions from a library book, Ed and Earl start building bombs out of air conditioner parts. Before long, unattended drive-through fotomats start exploding in the night and the two become notorious in the tabloids.

Published in 1998, Soft Click of a Switch is a story ahead of its time, written in the days before the term Domestic Terrorist became common vernacular. Soft Click of a Switch is an exploration of the disaffected and disenfranchised, presenting its characters in three dimensions rather than as societal ogres shaped by media-framed sound bites, bullet point factoids or the typical neighborhood buzz, "He seemed nice, and mostly kept to himself."

All tickets are Pay-What-You-Can. There are no service fees for advanced online ticket purchases.

Soft Click of a Switch is directed by Peggy Gannon (Theater Schmeater's A Behanding in Spokane), and features the acting talents of Brandon Ryan (MAP Theatre's 3 Screams and SecondStory Repertory's Amadeus) and Mark Fullerton (Seattle Public Theater's Arms and the Man and Mauritius).

Soft Click of a Switch is stage managed by Sarah Bixler and features the design talents of Suzi Tucker (Scenic Design), Terra Morgan Mullis (Lighting Design),Shane Regan (Sound Design and Marketing Graphics), Julia Evanovich (Costume Design), Jodi Saurebier (Props), and Rachel Delmar (Social Media and Photo Installation).
