iDiOM Theater presents the first in this season’s Playwright Reading Series!



Nan has decided to teach her abusive husband Kyle a lesson. With the help of her friend Simon (acting as her emotional — and actual — cheerleader), a stripper named Sweetheart, and the words of William Shakespeare, she tapes Kyle to a chair and forces him to watch as they reenacts scenes from their painful past. In the piece de resistance, they plan to cover the room in meat and honey so Kyle will be mauled by a bear. Through this night of emotional trials and ridiculous theatrics, Nan and Kyle are both freed from their past in this smart, wonderfully dark yet hopeful revenge comedy.

iDiOM Theater’s Playwright Reading Series shines a spotlight on a new writer each year. The series, directed by WWU professor Rich Brown, features two stage readings of plays by the featured playwright, followed by a full Main Stage Production of another of their plays in the spring. This year our subject is contemporary American playwright Lauren Gunderson, and our full production in Spring 2020 will be her play I and You.
