Tragedy: A Tragedy

Live Theatre is BACK at Orcas Center with a hilariously timely production: Tragedy: A Tragedy.

Reporting live on an unfolding crisis, Frank in the Studio is aided by his team of field reporters: John in the Field, Constance at the Home, and Michael, the Legal Advisor. As the impending event approaches and chaos builds, the broadcasters reveal themselves to be all too human. In an era during which many have come to question the veracity of the news media, Will Eno’s Tragedy: A Tragedy hilariously transcends fact-in-fiction in search of universal truths about the world–and times–we live in.

Will Eno is an American playwright based in Brooklyn, New York. His play, Thom Pain (based on nothing) was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize in Drama in 2005. His play The Realistic Joneses appeared on Broadway in 2014, where it received a Drama Desk Special Award and was named Best Play on Broadway by USA Today, and best American play of 2014 by The Guardian. His play The Open House was presented Off-Broadway at the Signature Theatre in 2014 and won the Obie Award for Playwriting as well as other awards, and was on both TIME Magazine and Time Out New York ’s Top Ten Plays of 2014.

Welcome back live theatre with incredible local actors Jon Spinogatti, Colleen Smith, Caleb Summers, Christopher Evans, and Liz Kistler. Directed and designed by Jake Perrine.
