Half of BAT’s 2015-16 season comes from the big script houses: The Addams Family and In the Next Room, the Vibrator Play. Nothing wrong with that, but at least once a season BAT likes to include a show it gets directly from the writer’s agent. This season BAT has two such shows: A Christmas Twist and The Letters. These two shows are not shows you have likely seen before. They are both Puget Sound premiers.
Both A Christmas Twist and The Letters are great scripts and will make great shows.
When selecting scripts for the season BAT likes to have a few people read them before BAT decides that a show will be part of the season. Recently, one of BAT’s Trustees, read The Letters. Like everyone who has read the script so far, the Trustee was amazed by this two person show. It’s almost a shame you’ll have to wait until April to see it on stage.
The Letters is a wonderful game of cat and mouse, with twists that you cannot predict.
But wait, you don’t have to wait to read this wonderful script. BAT just got permission from the author to put a copy of The Letters in BALL (Burien Acts Lending Library). BALL is BAT’s lending library located at Bumbershoot Books in Burien. It will be in the library by the end of the month. If you want to see just how good this show is, check out the script for The Letters at BALL.
Often authors with whom BAT deals with to get scripts before the script is picked up by a big publishing company will not let the scripts to be placed in a library. Luckily for you that is not the case here. A very special hat tip to the author John W. Lowell.
