From Seattle Times theater critic Misha Berson:
Sound Theatre company will present three Seattle premieres of works by well-known American playwrights in the company’s 2014 summer-fall season.
The season opens May 29 with “A Small Fire,” a play by Adam Bock about a woman who loses her five senses due to a mysterious illness. It will be performed at New City Theatre.
In August, Sound Theatre will present “The School for Lies,” an updated adaptation of Moliere’s satirical classic, “The Misanthrope,” by David Ives (“Venus in Furs”). It will be staged at Center House Theatre in the Seattle Center.
Ending the season in September: “Blood Relations” by Sharon Pollock. A thriller inspired by the true-crime story of Lizzie Borden, who stirred up a media storm after being charged with the ax murders of her parents in 1892. The production venue is Cornish Playhouse Studio in the Seattle Center.
Tickets for all plays are $25, with discounts for students and select pay-what-you-can performances.
