This Sunday at 7 p.m., the Edmonds-based Driftwood Players will present First Draft, where the audience gets to take part in the creative process that goes into completing an original dramatic work.
Actors dramatize the work “readers-theatre” style as an audience reacts and the author sees what works and what doesn’t. After the reading is done, there is a Q&A session with the dramatist.
This Sunday’s free event features “Rock and River” by Nick Stokes. Reminiscent of Beckett, this stylized work explores solitude and friendship, fathers and sons, love and loss, purpose and progress. A young man on a long walk finds an old man trying to move a rock into a river. From this humble beginning, a unique bond is formed between the two which will lead them into examining what it means to live – and die.
“Rock and River” is directed by David Alan Morrison and features Jon Loina and Michael Oaks.
The Wade James Theater is located at 950 Main St. For more information, call 425-774-9600 or visit online at www.driftwoodplayers.com.
The Driftwood Players are currently performing “The Miracle Worker” through Feb. 20 and will perform “A Strange Disappearance of Bees” Feb. 25-27.
