“Slowgirl,” a play about a teenager who flees to the Costa Rican jungle to escape criminal charges in the U.S., will be playing in the OutCast Theater in Langley.

“In Los Angeles, Costa Rica, teenage Becky has just arrived at her Uncle Sterling’s house in the jungle, hoping to escape indictment on criminal charges in the USA. Years earlier her uncle narrowly escaped indictment, himself, and retreated to Costa Rica to elude his demons,” the press relase states.

“Both Becky and Sterling are about to discover that it’s impossible to hide in a town of just 85, and even harder to hide from yourself.”

The play is written by Greg Pierce. The OutCast production is directed by Edward Jordon and stars Sommer Harris and Kevin Lynch, with Patricia Duff and Mark Thrall.

Evening performances are at 7:30 p.m. on May 25, 26, June 1, 2, 7, 8 and 9; and there will be a 4 p.m. matinee on June 3.

Ticket prices are $18 for adults and $14 for seniors and students; the June 7 performance is $12 for all. Purchase tickets by email ocp@whidbey.com or by visiting Brown Paper Tickets.
