Location: Seattle Repertory Theater

Time: 12-5pm

Dates and Shows: 

October 19th for the show Servant of Two Masters, a comedy about trickster named Truffaldino who signs on to serve two masters in the hope of double wages and double dinners, chaos and hilarity ensue. This witty new adaptation is brought to life by an ensemble production full of music, magic, and every trick in the theatrical rucksack – from Goldoni to Groucho Marx.

November 16th for the show Bo-Nita, a complex drama about a 13-year-old, who winds up with a dead, semi-ex-stepfather on her bedroom floor. With humor, pathos, and a dash of Midwest magic realism, Bo-Nita follows the resourceful exploits of a working class mother-daughter duo determined to stay together—and out of jail. Elizabeth Heffron is a local playwright and alumna of the Rep’s Writers Group. Under her skillful hand, Bo-Nita, is a theatrical coming-of-age tale that is both hilarious and heartbreaking.
