John Swayze Theatre

Matthew R. Wilson, Founding Artistic Director of Faction of Fools Theatre Company will helm the season-closer, Act A Lady by Jordan Harrison. The Seattle Times says, “When you think of men performing in female drag, you probably don’t conjure up someone like Miles in Jordan Harrison’s droll, ingratiating comedy “Act a Lady.” Miles is a burly small-towner, with a God-fearing, accordion-playing wife named Dorothy, a broad Midwestern accent and an aw-shucks manner. But get him into a flouncy wig and a voluminous satin dress, plunk him in a silly play about romantic rivalries in Revolutionary France, and a star is born.”

The men of a small Prohibition-era town decide to stage a play. As the play within this play comes together, gender lines blur, eyebrows raise, identities explode, and life and art are forever entangled. Act A Lady is a thoughtful and exuberant Midwestern fable about the woman in every man, the man in every woman, and the power of theater to uncover both.
