Edmonds Driftwood Players hosts 11th annual Festival of Shorts


Last updated 6/23/2022 at 10:03am

After being postponed last year due to the pandemic, the Edmonds Driftwood Players hosts its 11th annual Festival of Shorts June 24-July 3.

These shows have been selected from submissions from around the globe, and have never before been produced for an audience. Past winners have later been developed into full-length award-winning plays.

Each performance includes eight short plays that include multiple directors and casts. During the festival, audience members vote for a favorite at each performance from among the eight finalists.

The playwrights submitted scripts with the theme, "What Would You Do?" This theme explores ethical dilemmas and decision-making in everyday life, with both the comedic and dramatic consequences of people's decisions.

The eight shorts that will be performed are "Windfall" by James Pfrehm (directed by Jonathan C. Olson); "Whole New World" by Karla M. Sorenson (directed by Martin Mackenzie); "The Price to Pay" by Elena Naskova (directed by Dawn Cornell); "Seeing the Light by Jeff Dunne (directed by Thomas A. Glass); "Losing Tucker by Paul Lewis" (directed by David F. White); "Like Jason" by Maripat Allen (directed by Eric Bischoff),;"Why" by Chris Widney (directed by Mark Velednitsky), and "The Good War" by Brent Stainer (directed by Laura Crouch).

The design team includes Nancy Johnson (properties designer), Brent Stainer and Cami Taliaferro-Barber (lighting designers), Daniel Hanlon (sound designer), and Melina Boivin and Faye Mattingley (costume designers).

Katie Soulé and Brian Fletcher are production managers, and Diane Jamieson and Sean Morrone are stage managers.

Shows are Thursdays through Saturdays at 8 p.m., Sundays at 2 p.m.

Tickets are $18-$20.
