This Week At Eclectic Theater: Other Desert Cities!

ODC

Set in Palm Springs over Christmas weekend, “Other Desert Cities” centers on the powerful Wyeth family. Lyman, an actor-turned-ambassador during the Reagan administration, and his wife Polly, a former screenwriter, are set to celebrate the holidays with their adult children Brooke & Trip. Without informing her parents, daughter Brooke, has written a memoir exposing painful family secrets. Trip tries to stay out of the crossfire as their alcoholic aunt, Polly’s sister Silda, eggs Brooke on. In a series of confrontations, the Wyeths sift through conflicting memories of the past and face serious choices about how to go forward.

The Seattle Fringe Festival returns to Capitol Hill this fall with 22 new productions.

Featuring an eclectic mix of artists, the Seattle Fringe Festival’s 5-day schedule offers a range of live art—from raw and untested to perfectly executed—in a variety of genres and styles.

This year you’ll be able to catch a fringe fest show at Annex Theater, Eclectic Theater, the NW Film Forum, and the newly-opened Calamus Auditorium at Gay City Arts, all located in Seattle’s Capitol Hill neighborhood.

All artists performing in the Seattle Fringe Festival 2014 are chosen by a non-adjudicated lottery.

The Seattle Fringe Festival 2014 is a program of Theatre Puget Sound (TPS). All donations directly support the Seattle Fringe Festival, but tax-deductible receipts for donations will be issued by TPS.

The Seattle Fringe Festival is produced in association with Seattle Contemporary.

Poetry & Play

by Samuel Beckett

In three urns side by side are encased two women and a man. The style is brilliantly abstract, ranging from choruses of existential oblivion to ruminations and reiterations of a common experience that ended unhappily for a man, his wife and his mistress.…
