LIVE! From the Last Night of My Life
by Wayne Rawley
Dear Theatre22 Community,
We are thinking about you during this incredible time. It’s been a swift and continual escalation for all of us and the ripple effects of our current crisis are hitting everyone in significant ways.
We sincerely hope that you and your loved ones are safe, sane, and healthy.
As we continue to live isolated from our community, we would like to offer a special, one-time, Live-Streaming Event to bring our friends and patrons together this Saturday April 11th at 7pm: Live! from the Last Night of My Life by Wayne Rawley staged in 2015 (2nd Season).
Our streaming will be a professionally edited, 3-camera, archival video.
This event is FREE but requires pre-registration for security purposes. We have included a donation link should you feel able or inclined; these funds will help keep our staff and artists financially afloat during this uncertain time. Please find the Registration and Donation links below.
Please do not hesitate to reach out to me with any questions you may have. We hope you can join us this weekend!
Looking forward to seeing you again in person when the crisis subsides!
Corey McDaniel ~ Producing Artistic Director
Doug Sample is a man who has decided his experiment with life has, for all intents and purposes, failed. He has achieved nothing, accomplished nothing, and has nothing except his graveyard shift at a local gas station and Mini-Mart. He has decided that the best thing for everyone would be if he shot himself in the head, and he is planning to do it right in front of the Mini-Mart’s security cameras at the end of this, his last shift. But before the night is over, Doug will be visited by his past, his present, his possible futures and some particularly annoying customers as he struggles with some of life’s most challenging questions like, “Why should I go on?”, “What does it all mean?”, and perhaps most importantly, “Did I remember to change the cherry syrup in the Slushie Machine?”
Originally staged by Theater Schmeater during its West Coast premiere in 2011, the original cast and crew come together again to bring this award-winning production back to the Seattle stage in 2015.
