Fall 2018 - Island Stage Left Presents SLOWGIRL, by Greg Pierce

A story, told with humor and sensitivity, about the friendship between a reclusive uncle and his teenage niece as they navigate the delicate regions of guilt, innocence and truth. 

 

Becky, a seventeen year old, has fled to her hermitic uncle’s retreat in the Costa Rican jungle to escape the aftermath of a terrible accident. The week they spend together forces them both to confront who they are and what they are running from.

 

We see the many ways tragedy can unmoor a life and the power of family to both wound and heal. It is an engaging and compassionate story, and, as it reveals itself, the play touchingly charts the loving

complexities of families.

PLEASE NOTE:

Since Island Stage Left offers all its performances free of charge, we do not sell tickets or take reservations (unless you are a member of the Star Circle), although donations are always appreciated and are essential to the longevity of the company.

 

Seating is on a first come, first served basis and arriving at least 15 minutes early is always a good idea especially for the indoor shows.

 

In the summer, our outdoor performances have chairs set up, and also space for you to bring your own chairs if you prefer, plus space for blankets and sleeping bags close to the stage.

 

The request to bring warm clothes and blankets is to keep you warm, as the temperature can drop 20 degrees on some summer nights.
We look forward to seeing you!
