This Week At Eclectic Theater: Final Week for Across A Little Red Marker and Coming Soon!

Thursday-Saturday at 8pm and Sunday at 2pm are the last performances of Across A Little Red Marker. 

“…this taut little thriller by Jim Moran has a cinematic quality…” by Brendan Kiley, The Stranger

The year is 1988, when George H.W. Bush will be elected President, the Edmonton Oilers will trade Wayne Gretzky to the Los Angeles Kings and the enacting of a new trade agreement waits, which will change things for the U.S.-Canada border. Nadine works as a U.S. Border Inspector, serving and protecting her Port of Entry with an authoritative, no-nonsense style. However, a health scare causes the single mother and Vietnam widow to pursue a life insurance policy. When she meets Mr. Hayden, a duplicitous
insurance agent with a dark and hidden agenda, Nadine soon finds her life and the world around her spiraling out of control.

Mr Dewsberry

The Tale Of An American Hero 

A Comedy by David Kulcsar.

Inspired by the Bill Murray classic Groundhog Day and the comedies of Will Ferrell, Mr. Dewsberry: The Tale of an American Hero follows a day in the life of Montgomery Dewsberry , the CEO of LemonCo.

Once America’s #1 supplier of lemonade, LemonCo faces an uncertain future after struggling through the economic downturn. Crass, immature, and selfish, Mr. Dewsberry’s life takes an unexpected turn when he speaks to what he believes to be the spirit of Ronald Reagan, and he begins to relive the same moment of a day over and over again.

Written and Actor Managed by David Kulcsar, Mr. Dewsberry: The Tale of an American Hero pokes fun at and examines today’s world of American politics and big business, all awhile dragging the rest of pop culture with it.

The show previews on Thursday, April 11th at 7:30 PM, and runs through April 21st, Fridays – Sundays. Tickets are available here at Brown Paper Tickets .

It is the true story of a mission for the perfect prescription.

HEART NEED GLASSES11x17 seattle copy


William Shakespeare‘s tragedy of jealousy and revenge. Thu-Sat at 8pm and Sun at 2pm. April 25-May 26.

Othello, a celebrated general, yet an outsider, defies social convention and marries Desdemona, a Venetian aristocrat. Enter Othello’s most trusted lieutenant, the honest Iago, who nurses a vengeful hate for his commander. As Iago draws Othello and the audience into a spider web of half-truths, scandal is fueled families and friendships destroyed until a trifle light as air tragically unravels them all.

With poetry rivaling King Lear and with the psychological depth of Hamlet, Shakespeare constructs a highly charged tale of prejudice, revenge, and the destruction of innocence.

Content Advisory: Suitable for teens and adults, Othello contains onstage violence and sexual innuendo. Concerned parents and theater-goers may want to contact the Box Office for more information.

“This production is being presented under the auspices of the Actors’ Equity Association Members’ Project Code.”

Directed by Kim Deskin.

Starring Michael Blum, Ann-Mari Bryant, Rik Deskin*, Eleanor Moseley*, Eric Newman*, Scott Maddock, Corey Lynn Atencio, Alexa Oo, Jeff Allen Pierce*, Brandon Marino, and Mary Murfin Bayley!

Sound Design by David Torres.

Costume Design by Holly Forbis.

Two Rooms

Two Rooms is one of acclaimed playwright Lee Blessing’s most recognized plays. A woman, Lainie, sits in an empty room and waits for news of her husband, a hostage in Lebanon. She imagines conversing with her husband, and deals with a representative of the State Department and a member of the press as she tries to find her way.

This play explores the personal cost of large-scale political conflict, and measures the power, or lack of power, that governments have over individuals. The US State Department wants Lainie to stay quiet, to not get in the way of their ongoing negotiations. The press wants to share her story with the world. Lainie just wants her husband back. And her husband just wants to come home.

After an acclaimed production of Proof in 2012 as well as an original show for Veteran’s Day, Confrontational Theater Project is proud to show the first of two plays that represent their 2013 “season”. Both shows deal with hostages and hostage-takers. Look for Someone Who’ll Watch Over Me as a companion piece this fall.

Performances are all weekend at 8 p.m., with a pay what you will preview on Thursday, and an Industry Night on Monday, where theater and film folks are especially welcome.

May 31-June 4 at 8pm.

Once again, we are offering this show for one weekend only! If you heard about our previous shows by haven’t made the time, don’t miss out this time around.

The show features performances by Scott C. Brown, Brittni Thoreson, and Julia Nardin.

Two Rooms is produced by Baron Von Oldenburg and directed by Beau M. K. Prichard.

Please plan to arrive early to find parking.

Tickets are available at Brown Paper Tickets.




And finally we have  The A/V Club.

A late night comedy show featuring a group of high school students
who are forced into watching a horrible movie. It’s Mystery Science Theater 3000 meets The Breakfast Club!

This is a late night show with plenty of filthy language, so please keep the little ones at home.

Two nights only at the Eclectic Theater in Capitol Hill, Fri. May 31 & Sat. June 1 @ 10:30pm.

Tickets: $10 (+ processing fee) on
or $15 at the door.
