Troubled-yet-talented art director Kyle struggles to find himself amid the inner turmoil of his creative department with the help of an unlikely ally… his new copywriter Dodo, a living relic of the ‘Mad Men’ era. Set within the halls of a storied ad agency and inspired and based on real people and events, The Fierce Urgency of Now exposes the precarious nature of power and the limitations that come with the stereotypes we place both on ourselves and others using a delicate balance of wit, verve, and humor.

Featuring: Laura Crouch, Kelly Johnson, Evan Louis Thomas, Lisa Viertel, and Mark Waldstein.

Assistant directed by Renee Cyr, stage management by Zach Sanders, costume design by Nicholas Giacalone and Max Holley, lighting design by Zach Brink, sound design by John Epperson, set design by Kim Rosin, and properties by Katt Carlson.

Seattle Theatre Works seeks applicants for the following positions for our upcoming production of Six Characters in Search of an Author slated to run at The Erickson Theatre on Capitol Hill July 10 – 24.

Stage Manager
Assistant Stage Manager
Scenic Designer
Costume Designer
Sound Designer

Originally premiering in Italy in 1921 before coming to Broadway for a one year run in 1922, Six Characters in Search of an Author thrust Luigi Pirandello onto the world stage as one of the most important dramatists of the 20th century. This new adaptation reframes this groundbreaking work in contemporary Seattle where a small, fringe theatre troupe is rehearsing yet another short play festival on Capitol Hill. Suddenly, an odd family – and we mean odd by Capitol Hill standards – bursts into their rehearsal claiming to be orphaned characters whose story their author for some reason was unable to tell, so they entreat this acting company to tell their story for them. The result is a complex meta-play that explores the nature of truth and reality as well as the limits of theatrical expression.   

Stipends available.

Designers interested in applying should submit a resume and portfolio to

Applications Available for

The Directing Workshop:
Process and Practice for Stage/Film
with John Jacobsen and Robin Lynn Smith at Freehold Theatre

This hands-on directing workshop, designed for directors at all levels, is a unique opportunity to work with two master teachers from two different worlds.

John Jacobsen, Emmy Award winning director and host of the PBS series The Artist Toolbox; co-founder and former Executive Director of TheFilmSchool, has written, directed, and produced feature films and commercials in Los Angeles, worked on and off Broadway in New York, and recognized as one of the experts on STORY. Robin Lynn Smith, Founding Partner and Artistic Director at Freehold, has worked for the past thirty years acting, directing, and teaching in Chicago, Boston, Seattle, and New York and is acknowledged as one of the best directors in Seattle.

This course is designed for directors seeking practical and high standard setting experience working with actors, camera and editing. Because of the intense and focused nature of the course, we limit class size to 8 directors in order to give each participant hands-on experience and lots of one-on-one work with the instructors and actors. We interview actors and directors to join the class, and students will work on a variety of different projects, focusing on what it takes to write a good scene; how to get honest and specific performances, where to put the camera and how to edit. Working with theatre text will give directors and actors an opportunity to work with actors in layered, proven material in which a rich subtextual life is necessary; then directors will move onto filming a short film (your choice is to shoot some scenes you have written, to shoot scenes we provide, or even shoot a narrative short limited to five minutes) with either a cast we help provide or your own cast. The proven beauty of this course is that you will rewrite, shoot and edit that short three times, thus giving the instructors and you the ability to improve it again and again, until we celebrate the work with the public in a gala screening at the end. This is one of the few courses in Seattle where directors get to work hands on with actors, text, camera and master teachers. This class is an excellent follow-up for students who have taken Directing and Acting for the Camera at Freehold.
