The God of Hell by Sam Shepard

February 20 – March 15

Sam Shepard takes us on a farcical, brilliantly provocative ride that both entertainsGOH-Postcard1 and provokes questions about forced patriotic conformity and the fragility of democracy: Frank and Emma are Wisconsin dairy farmers who live a quiet respectable life until they agree to put up Frank’s old friend, a scientist on the run from a secret government project involving plutonium. What ensues is a thrilling theatrical ride as hilarious as it is sobering.


Director, Joanna Goff Sunde, leads a brilliant cast, including Maureen Miko (Stone Soup’s Artistic Director), Gianni Truzzi, Keith Dahlgren, and Edwin Scheibner.


The performance runs Thursday – Saturday evenings at 8pm and from February 20 – March 14, with two Sunday matinees, 3/1 and 3/8 at 4pm, $12.50 previews on February 18 and 19. General admission prices are $15-$25, $20 for seniors.

All Thursdays after preview are Pay-What-You-Will.


Tickets are available for purchase at www.stonesouptheatre.org, by phone at the Stone Soup Box Office at (206) 633-1883 or at www.brownpapertickets.com, 800-838-3006.


Alice in Wonderland created by the Manhattan Project under the direction of Andre Gregory

April 10 – May 3

Everyone is familiar with Alice’s antic adventures, and they are all here – but with an interesting difference. From the presumed innocence of the original is drawn a caustic and giddy revelation of the human psyche and the dark, unsettling shadows which can linger there. Freud and Jung, Kafka and Dali, all make their presences felt, in a piece of pure theatre that is full of truth, fun, terror, and uncanny pertinence to our own topsy-turvey times.

Alice is an exemplary instance of how a classic can be make ‘new’, and one of the extremely rare instances of a book’s being turned into a wholly satisfactory theatrical experience…an exciting, absorbing, vertiginous descent into a laughing hell” Time Magazine
