In its eighth iteration, Island Theatre brings to the stage ten of the best short plays penned by Kitsap County playwrights for a three day festival of live performances. Selected from over sixty submissions by a blind judging panel of theatre professionals, the plays will be helmed by ten local directors and cast with over two dozen local actors. In works that range from serious drama to light-heated comedy, these ten local playwrights offer us surprising reflections on modern life.From relationships to immigration, sexual identity to television culture, they capture the quirks and challenges of a world in transition.The ten plays and playwrights are: “Alexa” by Jeff Fraga; “Best Defense” by Jennifer Pippin-Montanez; “Dancing with Orion” by Diane Walker;“Devolution” by Connie J. Bennett; “Hijab” by Catherine Rush; “The Lady from Out of the Past” by Maria Viera Beatty; “Let Me Finish (One LastChance)” by Dan Rosenberg; “The Raven in the Woods” by Tamarah Rockwood; “The Rose Bowl” by Robert Craighead; and “Trans-Matters” by Eve Palay.
