Gesa Power House Theatre presents a screening of the independent film Halfway to Zen on Friday, April 30 at 7:00PM with an encore screening on Wednesday, May 5 at 7:00PM.
Halfway to Zen is a drama about a fractured family coming together to raise their collective middle fingers at the odds they’ve each been dealt.
After release from prison, Nick is trying to walk a straight line by taking care of his father, Pop, who’s forgotten what a lousy dad he once was. When Nick is reunited with his 11 year-old daughter Edie (who insists she’s now Eddie) and his ex-wife, Vick (who’s engaged to a woman), this ragtag team of bulletproof misfits has to relearn everything they know about what makes a family.
Halfway to Zen was produced by Wonder Wheel Productions a family-driven independent film company consisting of Toby Poser, John Adams, and daughters Lulu and Zelda Adams. The small family creative team does it all: casting writing, videography, acting, directing, editing, and film crew. The family have been making films since 2010, each successful in its own right on the film festival circuit. Halfway to Zen, their fourth film, is unrated, but contains strong language.
General admission seating ($15 Adults, $10 Students) are available online or by calling the box office at 509-529-6500. Seating for each screening is capped at 100 patrons, as allowed under Phase 2 of Washington’s Safe Start Plan.
