OutCast Productions is living up to its name, bringing another piece of “theater on the edge” to South Whidbey with “Nickel and Dimed.”

The show by Joan Holden is based upon the sociological non-fiction, bestseller novel “Nickel and Dimed: On (Not) Getting by in America,” by Barbara Ehrenreich, according to a recent press release.

The release states that the book discusses the author’s “undercover odyssey,” delving into the world of life lived as a middle-aged, middle-class woman working three minimum wage jobs to pay rent.

It is a “vivid and witty, yet always deeply sobering” exploration of life as an underpaid woman in America, according to the press release.

The cast includes Eric Andersen, Sean Brennan, Jim Carroll, Judith Dankanics, Patricia Duff, Peggy Gilmer, Doug Kolb, Hannah Mack, Mona Newbauer and Julia Tewksbury.

The show will open at 7:30 p.m. Friday, March 6, at the Black Box Theater at the Whidbey Island Fairgrounds in Langley. It will run through Saturday, March 21. Performances are 7:30 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays March 6-21; 7:30 p.m. Thursday, March 19; and at 2 p.m. Sunday, March 15. Doors open one half hour prior to show time. Tickets cost $18 for adults and $14 for students and can be purchased at the door, or by emailing ocp@whidbey.com or visiting brownpapertickets.com.
