Sound Theatre Company’s  2015 Season Explored

“REVOLUTION and REVELATION”

Summer Season of Seattle Premieres

Producing Artistic Director Teresa Thuman has selected two Seattle premieres, to be co-produced with African-American theatre company Brownbox Theater and South Asian cultural organization Pratidhwani. Both productions will run at the Center Theatre at the Seattle Center Armory (formerly Seattle Center House) from July 16 to August 30.

Building Relationships, Reflecting Seattle’s Rich Cultural Tapestry

This season reflects a commitment by Sound Theatre Company to apply its mission of presenting work inspired by language and music to mirror Seattle’s rich cultural tapestry of artists and audiences. In forging producing relationships with other cultural organizations, Sound Theatre also seeks to expand on its goals of showcasing professional and emerging talent in the Seattle area.

Poetic Plays of Revolution and Revelation

“Both of these exquisite, elegant and poetic plays are set in historical times of war and revolution, not unlike today,” reflects Thuman on the theme of Revolution and Revelation. “In the face of social turmoil, political upheaval and violence, these visionary playwrights remind us we can chose to respond with creativity, art, love, compassion and the unlimited boundaries of the human imagination.” She goes on to explain, “this season, and presenting these two co-productions, is the culmination of two years work to expand the inclusivity of our artistic mission.”

Seattle Premiere

…And Jesus Moonwalks the Mississippi is a poetic retelling of the myth of Demeter and Persephone set during the Civil War and narrated by the Mississippi River. Having run away from a plantation, a father searching for his daughter is murdered and resurrected in the fertile, war-torn landscape of Louisiana. This lyrical play by one of America’s most exciting young African-American playwrights combines traditional storytelling, gospel music, and a wicked sense of humor to create a rich, imaginative world that allows trees to preach, rivers to waltz, and Jesus to moonwalk.

by Tom Stoppard

August 13 – 30, 2015
Performed at the Center Theatre at the Seattle Center Armory,
305 Harrison Street

Directed by Andrew McGinn

Co-produced with Pratidhwani

Seattle Premiere

Set on two different continents and in two different eras, this passionate and fascinating drama by Tom Stoppard (Arcadia, The Real Thing) follows free-spirited English poet Flora Crewe on her travels through India in the 1930s, where her intricate relationship with an Indian artist unfurls against the backdrop of a country seeking its independence. Fifty years later, in 1980s England, her younger sister Eleanor tries to preserve the legacy of Flora’s controversial career. Little by little, Flora’s mysterious past is revealed, as is the surprising story of two people whose connection lives on through art. Indian Ink is an evocative portrait of love and loss while crossing cultural divides and a quest for divine sensuality.

Contains nudity.
