Pablo, a high-powered lawyer, and doctoral candidate Tania, his very pregnant wife, are realizing the American dream when they purchase a house next door to community stalwarts Virginia and Frank.

Planted in difficult issues, this hilarious play guarantees no one comes out smelling like a rose.

When Death arrives to spirit Julia Dowling to the afterlife, Julia instead wheedles him into joining her for a Christmas party with her family. Julia, who had no such party planned, scrambles to persuade her estranged family to come together on Christmas Day. Old resentments surface, new connections are made, and everyone, even Death, feels the magic of the Christmas spirit. A touching and hilarious look at the things that really make life worth living.

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

April 24-May 17, 2020, 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.

PRIOR IN BAT'S 2019-20 SEASON:

 

This Summer, BAT is taking it the streets (well the parks anyway)BAT Earnest portrait

"THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING EARNEST" by Oscar Wilde

In a beautiful adaptation of The Importance of Being Earnest, set in 1984 with all the big hair and Valley Girl charm that goes with that, BAT will make you laugh out loud.

Oscar Wilde's farce follows the story of two men who use fictitious personas to escape from the social standards of the Valley Girl era. The show is full of dramatic, romantic proposals that are only thwarted by the women's claim that they must marry a man named Ernest!

Coming to parks in South King County. Locations and schedules to follow.
