WORLD PREMIERE: Time’s Arrow (October 2016)

Time’s Arrow

People Pass Through. Spaces Remain.

teaserSeattle, Wa— Seattle Experimental Theater is proud to present its original improvised play, Time’s Arrow.

The old jail that might be haunted. The house that has housed three generations of a family. The local restaurant that was the site of a bank robbery in the 1940s. What ghosts are you walking through? The spaces around us are rich with history defined by wonderful, terrible, forgettable, sublime individual and collective experiences, yet we exist in them for only one moment at a time.

Time’s Arrow invites you to take a walk through the spaces of the past. Every performance, Time’s Arrow uses stories from the audience to explore the layers of life piled in a single location. Every performance will be completely improvised and unique, based on that evening’s stories from the audience.

Time’s Arrow is created and directed by Elizabeth Brammer.

Performances

Performances are October 13, 14, 15, 20, 21 and 22 at 8pm
at the Ballard Underground.
(2220 NW Market Street, Lower Level; Seattle, WA 98107)

Tickets are $20 at the door or $18 online. Advance tickets available at brownpapertickets.com

SEATTLE, WA – Join us for a SETember to remember.

Seattle Experimental Theater is proud to announce SETember 2015: a mini theater festival that showcases SET’s most popular productions at Theater Off Jackson in Seattle’s International District. SETember begins on Labor Day Weekend and runs through September 21st, 2015.

Since 2011, Seattle Experimental Theater has been bringing groundbreaking improvised theater to the Seattle area. Thousands of audience members over the years have smiled with us, laughed with us, and even cried with us. In addition to these numerous Seattle-area productions over the last 4 years, SET shows have been featured at events including Emerald City Comiccon, the Seattle Festival of Improv Theater, and the Hawaii Improv Festival. Now, for the first time, audiences can see multiple SET productions in the span of a single month at a fantastic venue.

In the evenings, SET will showcase their flagship, smash hit improvised sci-fi shows, Where No Man Has Gone Before and The Doctor. On Saturday afternoons, SET brings back last year’s original The Wolf and the Witch, a series of improvised fairy tales for kids and kids at heart of all ages. See your old favorite or discover a new favorite during SETember.

SETember is produced in association with Theatre Off Jackson.
