Island Stage Left presents “Slowgirl” from November 15 through December 16 in the Marie Boe Building at San Juan County Fairgrounds.
Slowgirl by Greg Pierce, is a story, told with humor and sensitivity, of a friendship between a reclusive uncle and his teenage niece as they navigate the delicate regions of guilt, fear and truth.
Becky, a 17-year-old girl, 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. It centers around the many ways tragedy can unmoor a life and the power of family to both wound and heal.
Suitable for children 12 and up. Occasional colorful language. A story for everyone who has ever made a mistake…..
Performances are at 7:30 p.m. Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays and at 4 p.m. on Sundays. Please note there are no performances on November 22 and 23 (Thanksgiving).
