September 17th -21st: Seattle Fringe Festival 2014

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.

Every show runs an hour or less. Tickets are priced affordably at only $10. And, all performances are centrally located, within walking distance of each other.

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.

“Sexual Healing” gives a new perspective and twist on the challenges of dating in order to find the one that makes our life complete. While Jill isn’t your average woman, her plight is in many ways universal. You will meet a cast of characters who while vastly different than people you have known, are ultimately human and aren’t afraid to live life on their terms and aren’t afraid to be who they truly are and we’re born to be.
