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.
