Spokane stages promise to be crowded through March

After a brief respite during the Christmas season, activity on area stages is starting to pick up again. A few shows are currently running – the heartwarming drama “Tuesdays With Morrie” at Ignite Community Theatre and the provocative satire “Disgraced” at Stage Left Theater – but here’s what you can expect to see on Spokane stages in the coming months.

Pulitzer winner ‘Disgraced,’ opening at Spokane’s Stage Left, offers a complex look at modern life

It sounds like the setup for a cheap joke. A white woman, a black woman, a lapsed Muslim man and a Jewish man, all wealthy and opinionated, go to a dinner party. The booze starts to flow, the conversation veers into religion and politics and a pleasant evening becomes an ideological minefield. But this isn’t some dumb gag: It’s the plot of Ayad Akhtar’s Pulitzer Prize-winning play “Disgraced,” opening Friday at Stage Left Theater.

In “Sunset Limited,” Cormac McCarthy play a drama of the mind

“The Sunset Limited” is one of two plays written by Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist Cormac McCarthy, and it opens at Stage Left Theater on Friday. The show centers on two men, a suicidal college professor and a reformed ex-con, at ideological odds with one another.

Short plays come ‘Fast and Furious’ at Stage Left

On Saturday and Sunday at Stage Left Theater, the audience is advised not to blink during the theater’s third annual staged readings of 1- to 3-minute-long plays. “Fast and Furious” includes more than 35 plays written by local and national playwrights.
