“A thought-provoking premise, a social conscience, and a lot of funny lines" - Boston Globe

BAINBRIDGE ISLAND, WA – Island Theatre presents a dramatic reading of Augusta by Richard Dresser at

the Bainbridge Public Library on December 3rd and 4th . Show times are 7:30 p.m. both nights. Admission

is by donation with a suggested $5 minimum donation.

Augusta is a comedy with a dark edge. Molly and Claire clean houses for wealthy summer people on the

coast of Maine but their world is rocked by the appearance of Jimmy, their new boss who is alternately

abusive and seductive. The three find themselves in a relationship filled with twists, turns, betrayals, power

grabs, moral dilemmas, and, ultimately, a startling crime which provides an unexpected ray of hope.

Richard Dresser’s seventeen published plays have been produced in New York, regional theater, and Europe.

Augusta is the first of a trilogy of plays about happiness and class in America.

Augusta is directed by Steve Stolee and features Islanders Sabrina Fiander, Cathy Richards-Ingram and

Dustin Ingram. It is recommended for high school age and up.

Island Theatre is excited to finally be bringing "Island Theatre at the Library" back to the Library after a long

Covid hiatus. Audience members will appreciate the new, higher stage, which provides better visibility and

was purchased with a grant from Bainbridge Community Foundation, and the improved lighting, which was

made possible by the Rotary Club of Bainbridge Island.
