Dec. 13-16: FINAL WEEKEND: Island Stage Left's "Slowgirl" at county Fairgrounds (runs through Dec.16)

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).
