Outcast Productions announces lineup for its ninth season

Outcast Productions has announced plays it will perform during its ninth season.

Founder and producer Ned Farley said this year’s season of plays will be presented at the Black Box Theater at the fairgrounds in Langley.

“We continue to sell close to 90 percent of the seats and are drawing many theater goers who are coming from off-island,” said Farley, who founded Outcast with K. Sandy O’Brien.

Outcast Productions is a nonprofit theater company with “an edge.”

“Our goal is to provoke a dialogue about some of the critical social issues of our time such as oppression, human rights, politics and the psychological and emotional worlds of human beings,” Farley said in a news release.

The 2019 Outcast Productions season includes:

HANDY DANDY, by William Dickson, directed by Ned Farley. March 15 – 30. Staring Gayle Flemming and Jim Scullin. Molly Egan, a feisty, salty-tongued activist nun in her early 70s and District Court Judge Henry Pulaski, a conservative jurist in his 60s, develop a grudging respect for each other. Eventually, the two begin to hear each other out on a personal as well as professional level.

SHTICK, by Henry Meyerson, directed by Jim Carroll. May 17 – June 1. Helen is left on the horns of dilemma: How can she be a nurturing caretaker for a man who has deceived her (with her own sister, yet) while knowing he is a snake with no visible conscience?

SHIRLEY VALENTINE by Willy Russell, directed by Gail Liston, Sept. 13-28. Staring Suzanne Kelman. An ordinary English, middle-class housewife receives an invitation from a girlfriend to join her for a holiday in Greece where she has an adventure with a local fisherman and decides to stay.

OVER MY DEAD BODY (A World Premiere) by Suzanne Kelman, directed by Gabe Harshman, Nov. 1-16. An out-of-work actor who can only get a part as a dead body thinks he has hit rock bottom….until he meets his understudy who would do anything to play the corpse, even if that means murdering any “body” who stands in his way.
