This Week At Eclectic Theater: Checkoff In The Sun and SketchFest Thunderdome!


Checkoff In The Sun

Thu-Sat at 8pm and Sun at 2pm. March 20-April 19!

In Goodisman’s literate script, nearly every line of dialogue pings off the previous one, as characters talk past one another and twist words to achieve their own meaning in a flurry of heady, digressive retorts and wordplay.
Dusty Somers, Seattle Times

Victoria is terminally ill. She arranges for a villa in the southwest and has her closest friends and family join her for what is assumed to be a final meeting among them. Two generations attend. It is a farewell but none can figure out how to say farewell. Each comes with a personal history, each with a personal need to assert what she or he meant to Victoria, the part played in Victoria’s life, and expectations for what Victoria should feel about them. Least of all can they figure out what she might want of them or how to handle the impending death.
