The final performances of Island Stage Left's production of Slowgirl, by Greg Pierce, take place at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, December 13-Saturday, December 15 and at 4 p.m. Sunday, December 16 in the Marie Boe Building at San Juan County Fairgrounds in Friday Harbor.
A story, told with humor and sensitivity, about the friendship between a reclusive uncle and his teenage niece as they navigate the delicate regions of guilt, innocence and truth.
Becky, a 17-year-old, has fled to her hermitic uncle’s retreat in the Costa Rican jungle to escape the aftermath of a terrible accident. The week they spend together forces them both to confront who they are and what they are running from.
We see the many ways tragedy can unmoor a life and the power of family to both wound and heal. It is an engaging and compassionate story, and, as it reveals itself, the play touchingly charts the loving complexities of families.
Daniel Mayes and Sylvie Davidson (Prospero and Ariel this last summer) play uncle and niece. Suitable for children 14 and up. Occasional colorful teenage language.
