The New Seattle by Cory Skurdal

This original play, a world premiere, by Columbus playwright, Cory Skurdal, tells the story of an elderly woman who is looking back on her life as she prepares to leave the home she has lived in, not always happily, for most of her life. She recalls her often challenging relationships with her parents, her sister, her former husband, her son, and her daughter. In examining her memories, she achieves a welcome degree of acceptance and peace. The New Seattle is a lightly fictionalized exploration of the playwright’s family history and of his mother’s life and experiences. The playwright, through the creation of this piece, has, like his main character, also achieved a welcome degree of acceptance and peace.

The New Seattle, directed by Pamela Hill and performed by Catherine Cryan, Jacob Erney, Kelsey Hopkins, and Mikayla Myers, runs approximately 90 minutes without an intermission. Talk-backs with the playwright, director, and cast will be held after the Saturday and Sunday matinee performances.
