The Auditorium at University Heights Center
Pay What You Choose Admission
All the world’s a stage, but in Elizabethan England, all the roles are given to men. Enter Imogen, who seizes a wordless walk-on in Shakespeare’s new comedy and recasts herself in a ferocious real-life leading role. Imogen Says Nothing is the wildly theatrical and subversively funny tale of an unforgettable creature refusing to let history erase her part.
The Auditorium at UHeights (University Heights Center): 5031 University Way NE, Seattle, WA 98105. A wheelchair lift is available at the SW entrance (off Brooklyn Ave) with a max capacity of 350 lbs. Please call UHeights staff for assistance at 206.235.8567.
Albatross Theatre Lab is a member of the UHeights Theatre Alliance.
Pay What You Choose Admission; first come, first served seating. No tickets or RSVPs required.
Imogen Says Nothing is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals on behalf of Samuel French, Inc. www.concordtheatricals.com
Director Interview: Beverly Poole
"I always want to know about the women who have been erased from history. There is an absurd element to this play that just delights me, and creates a lot of room for having fun. But more than that, there is an anger expressed in Imogen Says Nothing that feels incredibly powerful right now. A lot of us are angry right now, and we have every right to be when we look at the world around us."
—Beverly Poole, director
