BAT’s Shelter-in-Place Season – The Letters
May 3 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
One event on May 3, 2020 at 2:00 pm
In the psychological thriller The Letters, written by John W. Lowell, the Ministry Director calls Anna, a bureaucrat, into his office for a meeting. It is 1931 in the Soviet Union, and things are not what they seem. The meeting becomes a suspenseful game of cat-and-mouse in which being the last one to flinch may mean the difference between life and death. Based on Soviet efforts to edit composer Pyotr Tchaikovsky’s letters, this thriller is a vivid slice of paranoid life under Stalin.
Anna is performed by Devin Rodger and The Director by Michael Mendonsa – under the direction of Beau M.K. Prichard.
Each reading will be live on Zoom. To see the reading, audience members must donate to BAT at the link on the landing page of their website at www.burienactorstheatre.org. There are donation levels in varying amounts to fit a wide range of budgets. Following the donation, the audience member will be sent an email with a Zoom link and password to get into the “show.”
Donations help fund the cost of the readings. The donations also help BAT and Click-4-Tix, BAT’s online ticket seller, as they both face hard times.
BAT has missed their audience very much and hopes to be together soon. “Stay safe, and wash your hands!”
