CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL
THE PLAYWRIGHTS, DIRECTORS AND PERFORMERS
OF OUR FOURTH ANNUAL TEN MINUTE PLAY FESTIVAL!
... with special congratulations to Paul Lewis, whose play, My Beautiful Voyage, was declared the winner of this year's Festival. Directed by Matt Longmire and performed as shown here by actors Shannon Dowling and Bronsyn Foster, My Beautiful Voyage tells the story of a night-time bus journey that brings unexpected results.
Congratulations, in fact, to ALL the playwrights whose marvelous plays were chosen for performance at this year's festival: we had a record turnout, and some extraordinarily rich moments provoking both raucous laughter and occasional tears. Many thanks to all the actors and directors who gave so generously of their time to bring these plays to life on stage, and to Bainbridge Performing Arts, especially Alex King, Dierdre Hadlock, and Siobhan Maguire for all their assistance.
Island Theatre is particularly grateful to our 20th season sponsors: Althea Paulson and Dan Mallove, Linda Lemon for 2015 Royalties support, and One Call for All, and to our festival sponsors: the Bainbridge Community Foundation, The Maggi Rogers Fund (a BCF donor-advised fund) and The Michael Milligan & Jeanne E. Fund (a BCF donor-advised fund). Special thanks also go to the BI Police Department, Eclectic Home Furnishings, Winslow Arms, Peggy Brunton, The Bainbridge Review, and Mary Parker at Sound Reprographics.
