The wonderful Rose Woods returns to direct this poignant teen drama, opening on Friday, March 21 and running through Sunday, March 30.

This intimate stage version of the 1962 film, “David & Lisa,” details the challenges and triumphs of two young adults struggling with psychological issues at the school where they are being treated—and their ability to find some of themselves in each other. Dr. Swinford, the psychiatrist, her staff, and other students at the school round out an engaging ensemble cast that delves into the heart of who we are, despite whatever difficulties we are facing.

“There’s something heady and profoundly meaningful to have the honor of directing this talented group of high school students,” said Woods, of her cast. “They astound me daily. It’s humbling. They just bring it to every rehearsal with fearless performances and a thrilling and evocative ability to dive deeply into the script. I honestly cannot wait to get to the next rehearsal.”

This play will be presented in black-box style theater in the main classroom at WCT; just follow the signs once you get inside. We are located at 723 Camano Ave, next to Langley Middle School. Parking is in the bus parking lot at the corner of Cascade and Camano Streets.
