Cultivating the Queen – live theatre September 7, 2019 @ 7:00 pm $15 – $20

The Northwest Theater Project presents the live theatrical premiere of Cultivating the Queen on Saturday, September 7 at 7:00 p.m. at Gesa Power House Theatre.

Cultivating the Queen is an irreverent and comical examination of the female bawdy politic, in which a secret society investigates how Queen Elizabeth I was able to maintain power in a man’s world. Drawing on text from Shakespeare’s canon, this new play looks at the complications faced by women in power.

Cultivating the Queen is a new play in development, devised and directed by the Northwest Theater Project’s founding member, Whitman College Professor of Theater Christopher Petit. The production is made possible by the Louis B Perry Summer Research Endowment and the Parents Fund for Student-Faculty Research at Whitman College and through a residency at Gesa Power House Theatre.

The Northwest Theater Project is a collective of theater artists working in the Northwest, committed to creating innovative and original theater, generating and promoting new dramatic material, and exploring individual and collective theatrical visions. The collective provides a network of artistic collaborators and functions as a producing organization for original work.

Reserved seating tickets ($20 Adults; $15 Students) are available online or by calling the box office at 509-529-6500. Invite your friends and let them know you are going on Facebook.
