Enjoy unexpected new plays in Seattle Playwrights Studio Showcase

For about the price of a matinee movie theater ticket, you can see two brand-new plays from the creative minds of local playwrights during the Seattle Playwrights Studio Showcase in August at Burien Actors Theatre.

The Showcase offers performances from Aug. 19 through 21 of four new shows written by playwrights from the greater Seattle area.

Tickets are just $10, and each ticket includes admission to a performance of two plays.

THE PLAYS
In the hush-hush world of the undocumented, a brush with police spins out of control in Undocumented, written by Margaret O'Donnell. Performed on Aug. 19 and 21.

A mother fiercely fights the painful heritage of racism to ensure a better life for her daughter, and finds how much it can divide - or unit - in Andrea, written by Mari Salinas and directed by Roi Martin-Brown. Performed on Aug. 19.

What's a woman to do when her date picks an ex-brothel for their first meeting? Anywhere but Auschwitz, written by Bruce Firestone and directed by Geoff Little, is an often-wry look at the serious side of a building's history. Performed on Aug. 19 and 20.

Not Around Gordie, written by George Savage, Jr. and directed by Bruce McLean, is a comedy about progress, generational differences and young gas station employees exploring their identities in 1961 Santa Monica. Performed on Aug. 20 and 21.

Some of the shows are suitable for ages 13-plus due to some adult language or content.

The plays are products of the Seattle Playwrights Studio workshop, which is affiliated with BAT and meets at BAT twice monthly.

Performances are Friday, Aug. 19 and Saturday, Aug. 20 at 7:30 p.m., plus a matinee on Sunday, Aug. 21 at 2 p.m. at Burien Actors Theatre. The Sunday matinee will be followed by a free reception. Tickets are $10 and the reception on Sunday is free. For information or tickets, go to www.burienactorstheatre.org or call 206-242-5180. Burien Actors Theatre is located at 14501 4th Ave. S.W. in Burien.
