Three women who dreamed of seeing their own plays performed on stage one day will see that dream come true as actors bring their stories to life during the third annual One-Act Fest Northwest at Whidbey Island Center for the Arts, which takes place June 9-24.
The work of playwrights Aleah Stacey, Dianna MacLeod, and Teresa McElhinny embrace the festival’s theme, which is “Off-Kilter.”
Aleah Stacey wrote and directs “The Oyster,” a love story between two women. “It is interesting to me how people begin sexually to connect,” she says.
Dianna MacLeod wrote “Krump’s Cat,” which she describes this way: “When a narcissistic orange cat meets a determined cleaning lady who refuses to sweep dirt under the rug, the claws come out, and the fur flies.”
Teresa McElhinny adapted and directs “Schools of Thought,” which ponders our purpose in life and how it evolves over a lifetime.
