Drama
"Every Brilliant Thing" starring Kevin Loomer
Gesa Power House Theatre presents “Every Brilliant Thing” starring Kevin Loomer and directed by Nancy Simon. “Every Brilliant Thing” is a one-actor play, adapted by playwright Duncan McMillan from his own short story “Sleeve Notes”. British comedian Jonny Donahue, who originated the role, shares in the writing credit. The play’s title refers to a list – of everything wonderful in the world – that the narrator writes in response to his mother attempting suicide. He starts the list at age seven with items like “ice cream” and “staying up past your bedtime”, and as the narrator grows older, the list grows longer. The play’s story spans nearly three decades and several life-changing events, evoking laughter and tears in equal measure. The play has received critical acclaim in London, Edinburgh, and Off-Broadway in New York City. “Every Brilliant Thing” invites some audience participation, primarily through asking people to read a few words aloud during the performance from slips of paper they are given as they enter the theater. A few audience members are incorporated into scenes, with the actor doing most of the heavy lifting. The play will be performed “in the round” with on-stage seating. Kevin Loomer is a familiar face on Walla Walla’s many stages – under the spotlight and behind the scenes. He last performed on the Gesa Power House Theatre stage in “Such Sweet Thunder” in 2015, and as the title character in “The Merchant of Venice” in 2013. Kevin is the Director of Theatre Arts at Walla Walla Community College. Director Nancy Simon is Professor Emerita at Whitman College where she taught theater classes and directed at Harper Joy Theatre for nearly 50 years. Following her retirement, she remains active in the local theater scene. She directed a staged reading of Pat Henry’s play “Auschwitz and After” at Gesa Power House Theatre in 2016. Reserved seating tickets are available online (www.phtww.com) or by calling the box office at 509-529-6500.

Drama, Play
A Few Good Men
The first show of the 2017-2018 season at The Little Theatre of Walla Walla is "A Few Good Men" by Aaron Sorkin (creator of "The West Wing"). This drama is directed by George Smith and Kay Fenimore-Smith, with performances November 3, 4, 10, 11, 12*, 17, 18, and 19*. Friday and Saturday performances begin at 7:30 p.m. Sunday matinee performances begin at 2:00 p.m.. "A Few Good Men" is a Broadway hit play about the trial of two Marines for complicity in the death of a fellow Marine at Guantanamo Bay sizzles on stage. The Navy lawyer, a callow young man more interested in softball games than the case, expects a plea bargain and a cover up of what really happened. Prodded by a female member of his defense team, the lawyer eventually makes a valiant effort to defend his clients and, in so doing, puts the military mentality and the Marine code of honor on trial. Note: This performance includes adult content and strong language. Reserved seating tickets ($15) go on sale October 30. For more information visit www.ltww.org.
