Next up at BAT - BAT takes it to the parks!

For the Summer of 2022, The Play's the Thing is coming to a South King County park near you!

Directed by Rachel Rene.Plays Thing WebArt

The story revolves around Albert, a young composer of a new show, and the playwright, Sandor. When Albert unexpectedly arrives to see his fiancée, Ilona, he heartbreakingly overhears her sharing her affection with another man, Almady.

Sandor begins to rewrite reality to save Albert from heartbreak and thus save his new show. Through clever misdirection, Sandor tries to make it seem this incident was just dialogue in a play and begins to prep his 'actors' to take the stage - but will Albert fall for it?

This 'play-within-a-play' technique will leave you laughing out loud as the lines between reality and mere 'acting' blur. The clever use of this technique leads you down twists and turns that set up the hilarious finale.

A GOOD FARMER A MOVING DRAMA WITH HUMOR written by Sharyn RothsteinGoodFarmer 1stArt

Sometime in 2021? Friday and Saturday at 8 pm, Sunday at 2 pm

Laced with humor and heartache, A Good Farmer is the story of two women—a farm owner and her unlikely best friend, an illegal Mexican immigrant—fighting to survive in a small town divided by America’s immigration battle. Rothstein brings us the very human story behind some of today’s contentious political issues in a play about love, friendship, and finding the power to face what divides us.

To reach a wider audience, BAT has also translated the English dialogue into Spanish supertitles. So you hear the show in English and read along in Spanish.
