Award-winning New York City playwright, Tod Rainey, brings his new play, Ghost Light, to Seattle’s Annex Theater September 13 – 23, 2018.
GHOST LIGHT is an existential journey into the horrors of real life. The play follows Catherine Wraith–the matriarch of a white trash Irish traveler family–as she struggles to keep her family together, to stop the bank from foreclosing on their home, and to resist the Clown who is making unwanted advances. Set in theater rock bottom, Ghost Light explores the fine line between human consciousness and the ever-encroaching abyss.
The season will be newly in Libra and the moon will be in Gemini. With that much beauty in the air, why not enjoy a night with some incredible Seattle artists?
Passiflora Market will be a night of art and early autumn magic. Named for the passion flower, it is an opportunity for artists to present their work to new sets of eyes and to sell their wares. Come have a drink, peruse, and socialize!More Info

African storytelling has many forms. Ancient wisdoms were passed down through song, dance and (often comical) metaphorical re-tellings. Anansi and the Halfling strives to bring those storytelling mediums to light in a modern way through the experiences of a young, black millennial. As the story snakes through a college classroom, a mystical story realm, and the home of the gods themselves, puppetry, drumming, and movement are as crucial to the storytelling as the words themselves are. Our heroine strives to learn that in order to know where you’re going, you have to know where you came from… even when the past is painful.More Info
