Director Opportunities for the TIPs Series with Edmonds Driftwood Players
Theatre of Intriguing Possibilities is looking for directors for its two shows in the 2018/19 Season.

The first show, in the fall, is Yankee Tavern written by Steven Dietz. Just when you thought you'd heard every crazy 9/11 conspiracy theory, a stranger walks into the Yankee Tavern. There, inside the walls of this crumbling New York tavern, a young couple finds themselves caught up in what might be the biggest conspiracy of all. Steven Dietz's acclaimed and already widely produced dramatic thriller—a selection of the National New Play Network's Continued Life Project—is a fierce, funny and ultimately mind-bending work of theatrical power that grips you until the final word. What you don't know can hurt you. This show will run October 18 – 28, 2018. Performances will be held Thursday, Friday, Saturday at 8pm and Sundays at 2pm.

The second show is scheduled for January 10 – 13, 2019. This Spotlight on New Works features a local playwright, James Lyle, whose original work, Red Planet Blue, will shine! Red Planet Blue is a full-length sci-fi comedy/drama that explores the consequences when our technological ambitions disrupt the complex web of systems—personal, social, and cultural—that govern our lives. As the commander and crew of a remote terraforming station nervously prepare for the moment they will press “the big red button”, remaking a desert planet into an earthly paradise, their work is complicated by the arrival of a sleazy reality-TV producer determined to capture the historic moment, and a government inspector with her own doubts about the project and a troubled history with the station’s commander. When a crewmember is mysteriously killed, this isolated group must determine the cause--a simple technological failure? Or has their attempt to reshape a world awakened something with a power beyond our understanding?

Interested directors should email the TIPs Executive Producer, Diane Jamieson for an appointment at: Please plan to submit a resume and a letter explaining your vision for the show. Interviews will be scheduled for July 17 or 18.
