Washington Ensemble Theatre unveils 10th season

Reported by Seattle Times theater critic Misha Berson:

How time flies: Could  Washington Ensemble Theatre really be celebrating its 10th birthday soon?  The ever-eclectic and daring fringe company is planning a 2013-14 season of recent plays — most with a fantastical slant, and two of which are world premieres.  Though the company is slated to relocate to the new 12th Avenue Arts complex sometime in 2014, the upcoming season will be performed at its current Seattle space on 19th Avenue East.  Here  is the schedule (more details at  www.washingtonensemble.org):

“Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo,” by Rajiv Joseph (Sept. 13-Oct. 7, 2013.) A tiger that haunts the streets of present-day Baghdad searches for the meaning of life.

“Ed, Downloaded,” by Michael Mitnick (Jan. 31-Feb. 24, 2014).  This  half-live action play and half-feature film is a high-tech sci-fi love story.

“The Icelandic Illumination Ranger,” by Ali el-Gasseir and Jonah Von Spreecken  (Winter 2014).   World-premiere play for young people about characters who dance around magnetic poles, bend solar winds, and navigate the Reykjavik synth-pop scene.

“The Edge of Our Bodies,” by  Adam Rapp (March 28-April 14, 2014). In this one-woman play, a precocious and pregnant 16-year-old aspiring writer boards a train to New York City with only a notebook as her companion.

“The Hunchback of Seville.” by Charise Castro Smith (June 6-30, 2014).  World-premiere anti-colonialist romp set Seville, Spain in the year 1504.
