‘Mr. Green’ kicks off OutCast’s season

OutCast Productions presents its first show of the 2013 theater season “Visiting Mr. Green” by Jeff Baron at the Black Box Theater at the Whidbey Island Fairgrounds in Langley.

The play opens at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Feb. 1 and runs for three weekends through Saturday, Feb. 16.

“Visiting Mr. Green” follows the story of Mr. Green, an 86-year-old widower, who is almost hit by a car driven by young corporate executive Ross Gardiner. Found guilty of reckless driving, Ross is ordered to spend the following six months making weekly visits to Mr. Green. What begins as a comedic situation of two guys who resent being in the same room together, gracefully develops into an interesting and poignant drama, as the young man and elderly gent each reveal intimate family secrets and painful memories to each other and become friends, offering each other a bond that heals what ails them.

“Visiting Mr. Green” features Ed Cornachio and David Mayer and is directed by K. Sandy O’Brien.

Friday and Saturday performances are at 7:30 p.m. and two Sunday matinees are at 2 p.m.

Tickets cost $12 for students/seniors and $16 for adults and can be reserved through email at and paid for at the door by cash or check; or buy tickets online at
