Sound Theatre 2018 Season

The Human Family: Toward a Radical Inclusion

Sound Theatre presents a ground-breaking season unlike anything seen on Seattle stages.

In 2018, Sound Theatre is proud to mount a season of plays and events to consider the nature of THE HUMAN FAMILY. These offerings include unique productions of classic comedies, a Seattle premiere, Disability Theatre Project play-reading series of plays by disabled playwrights, art exhibitions, accessible performances and other experimental works as part of our Making Waves program.

“There are great innovations happening around the country in these creative, evolving dramatic forms of cultural inclusion; I believe we in Seattle are behind in embracing this exciting theatrical movement,” said producing artistic director  Teresa Thuman in a statement. “These days particularly, everybody needs to be invited to laugh, to love, to celebrate family and to dream of a better world. We also look forward to a long overdue conversation about the importance of people with disabilities in our art, our theatre, our storytelling and every aspect of our modern lives.”

RULES OF CHARITY

August 4 – 25, 2018

By John Belluso

Center Theatre at the Seattle Center Armory

Seattle Premiere of this provocative and subversive play by the late John Belluso, a playwright who championed honest portrayals of people with disabilities. The older generation clashes with the younger in this “lacerating critique of altruism” (SF Weekly). Monty, a brilliant father who has Cerebral Palsy and uses a wheelchair, spars with his care-taker daughter in the haunting relationship at the heart of this play that examines what it means to be disabled and marginalized in modern American society.

Contains Mature Content.
