MEET THE WRITER, 2017 ISLAND TREASURE AWARD WINNER PAUL LEWIS, AFTER THE APRIL 1 PERFORMANCE*

A special thank you to JJ's Fish House, our featured host for the Opening Night Party on March 17.

Winner of a Seattle Times 2016 Footlight Award for Promising New Work.

When in 1932, Amelia Earhart asks for his help preparing for a dangerous trans-Atlantic solo flight attempt, Ray Spencer, an aviation meteorologist haunted by a past tragedy, is on the threshold of an elusive scientific breakthrough which he hopes will make long-distance flight safer. But before he can help the young aviator he must first take on the ghosts of the past.

An interesting backstory of Amelia Earhart’s crossing of the Atlantic through the eyes of a reporter that documented the event. The focus is not only on Amelia in flight, but also on her support team on the ground, including husband George Putnam, her mechanic, and a very stressed meteorologist.

By Paul Lewis & Carissa Meisner Smit; Music by Paul Lewis; Directed by Sharon Greany

*MEET THE WRITER:

On April 1, Paul Lewis, local playwright, will stay after the show to talk with the audience and answer questions they may have about the play. Lewis lives on Bainbridge Island and is a 2017 Island Treasure Award winner. This is a wonderful opportunity for our patrons to learn how the play came to be and why the subject interests the writer.
