Charles Crowley and Jane Martin discuss their ideal situation.

Private Cocktails, currently running through the end of April at Eclectic Theater. Apart from the obvious need to support our fellow playwrights, I would encourage everyone to go because, as my father used to say, “It’s a hoot.” The acting is superb and the direction crisp.”
-Local playwright Christopher Bailey

Private Cocktails

by

John Ruoff

April 1-April 30, 2016

Thu-Sat at 8pm, Sun at 2pm.

Private Cocktails is an original comedy by Seattle playwright John Ruoff. While each attempting their own illicit affair, Lord and Lady Dropbottom become entangled with two mysterious Americans. A hidden fortune, secret pasts, and an oddly familiar troop of servants turns an evening of cocktails into loopy chaos. Private Cocktails parodies 1940s pulp fiction and classic drawing room farce with plenty of Ruoff’s off-beat and clever wit.

Directed by Jeff Woodbridge

Featuring Jared Holloway-ThomasNick MathewsJane MartinCharles Crowley, and Rebecca Herivel!

ShootingStar_11x17_R2Shooting Star

by Steven Dietz

May 5-14, Thu-Sat at 8pm

“We humans love stories. And every once in a while, if you’re lucky, you see a story that stands out from all the others. Steven Dietz’s SHOOTING STAR is one of those stories. There are plenty of laughs in Dietz’s humorous tale, but at every important moment, every emotional high, every startling revelation, the theatre grows utterly silent. Stories told this well don’t come around very often.” —Austin Chronicle. “Hilarious and very serious…Steven Dietz’s work is filled with undercurrents. You will find yourself laughing out loud. And then, two minutes later, realizing there’s something serious under the guffaws. SHOOTING STAR is a work both funny and sad; a quick and sharp play about our lives, one that gives us all the fun and all the tears of our times. This is the play Neil Simon, at his best, would have written if he had been young in the 1970s.” —WRNI (NPR) radio, Providence. “Steven Dietz sends a tender valentine to middle-age in SHOOTING STAR, a smart and sweet comedy from one of the American theater’s most-produced playwrights. Dietz’s gift as a writer is an acute attention to our modern language. He elevates ordinary conversation to a kind of music. Dietz makes reality poetic.” —Austin-American Statesman. “SHOOTING STAR is that rare romantic comedy that is funny, but also charming, endearing, and not removed from reality…the entertainment is in the telling, in the playful banter, and there’s lots of it. SHOOTING STAR starts bright and doesn’t fade. It is bittersweet, and ultimately redemptive.” —Providence (RI) Journal.

1014512_10150293701074956_1987412267_oPsycho Beach Party

Our Spring main stage show is a terrific play we’ve been dying to produce!  Psycho Beach Party, a comedic nod to the teenage beach movies of the 1960’s by queer playwright Charles Busch, will be directed by Fantastic.Z’s Kyle Baiz (Co-Artistic Director).  It’s hard enough being a teenage girl on Malibu Beach who just wants to be a surfer like one of the guys.  It’s even harder when you have a split personality.  Surf’s up for Chicklet and her friends May 26th – June 11th.

Thu-Sat at 8pm.

Advance Tickets are available at: http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/2405369
