New Comedy…A real stitch!

 

“There’s a part of him that doesn’t necessarily know what he’s searching for in life,” local actor Robert Geller commented.  Geller is playing the pompous suitor Bertram in Edmonds playwright Jeff Stilwell’s new dramatic comedy, A Dropped Stitch, opening September 30 at New Space Theatre in Shoreline.
“It feels very exciting playing this role,” Geller said, “Something I’ve always wanted to have – a terrific character that I feel very connected to: a conservative gentleman in a modern world with a loving nature.”  Bertram is the largest role Geller has ever played on the stage.  He has been studying acting in earnest for four years.  “I am approaching him just the way I’ve studied: being authentic to his back story, his conflicts, his trigger points, and responding truthfully to what the play brings out in him.”
“Robert’s a lot of fun to work alongside,” A Dropped Stitch leading lady Manya Vee said.  “He’s a real hoot, when he starts braying on and on about brushing one’s teeth as the ultimate act of civic responsibility.  I really have to fight to keep a straight face.”
In the play, a very conservative and traditional Bertram falls in love with independent and artistic Bobbie, played by Manya Vee.  “Opposites attract?” Manya Vee smiled.  Geller sees it a bit differently: “That independence that he starts to see in the woman he formerly saw as subservient; it opens up the world for him.  It’s a big risk for him to start going in that direction.”
“Yes, both lovers have a rather large narrative arc to cross in ninety minutes of stagetime,” playwright Jeff Stilwell noted.  “That’s what makes it fun.  Enthralling, really.  Once they get started down that path, we can’t really let them go.  Luckily for us, both actors are really tearing into their parts with great abandon.”
A Dropped Stitch is the sixteenth play of Stilwell’s produced so far, a career that has earned the playwright a long pedigree of critical salutes, such as Dale Burrows’ judgments of Teacup Tipsy: “a trip and a half in a little more than a hour and a half through an Alice-like wonderland and a half; ground-breaking in ways more than one…” and One Tile Short: “an intense dramatic comedy you don’t want to miss. It is an uninterrupted 90-minute power pack with something to say and a super-charged cast of four saying it…”
A Dropped Stitch runs for nine performances, Thursdays through Saturdays, 8 pm, September 30 to October 16.  Tickets ($20) are available at 425.776.3778.  For more information about the play, read the script and meet the cast, see New Classics Theatre.

All year long, organizations and individuals across the globe take part in Ocean Conservancy’s International Coastal Cleanup to remove trash and debris from the world’s beaches and waterways, identify the sources of that debris, and change the behaviors that allow it to reach the ocean in the first place.
During each September, hundreds of thousands of volunteers from countries all over the world spend a day picking up everything from cigarette butts and food wrappers to lost fishing nets and major appliances. Because trash travels to the ocean by way of storm drains and waterways, they don’t just work along ocean beaches; these dedicated folks slog through mud and sand along lakes, streams, and rivers, too, often working far inland.

The Edmonds Station is a passenger train station in Edmonds, Washington. It is a stop for Amtrak’s Empire Builder and Cascades trains, as well as for Sound Transit‘s Sounder Commuter Rail on the north line.The station, platform, and parking are owned by BNSF Railway. 

 Sound Transit formerly planned to relocate Edmonds station as part of the larger Edmonds Crossing Multi-modal project being led by the Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT). That plan was shelved in favor of renovating the station in place, a project expected to cost $12.9 million and be completed in early 2011. 

The Swamp Creek & Western Railroad Association (a model railroaders’ group) operates from the Edmonds Amtrak Station.
