• 8 p.m., Friday, April 1 — “Four Women”
“Four Women” is a one-actor play by Port Angeles author and playwright Rebecca Redshaw.
In the play, Christina, preparing to situate her mother in an Alzheimer’s facility, finds three letters and a photograph that will change her life. Ferreting out the history of a mystery soldier pictured in that photograph, Christina writes to three women whose letters she has chanced upon in hope of uncovering a secret past. As her mother’s memory fades, she writes to her as well in hope of finding out the truth.
Marianne Trowbridge recreates all four women, each of whom holds a piece of the puzzle to a woman’s struggle for truth in life.
Trowbridge has had a distinguished career in community theater for almost seven decades, playing such varied roles as Blanche in “A Streetcar Named Desire,” Ethel in “On Golden Pond,” and Vera in “Mame.” She has numerous credits as a director and choreographer as well. Redshaw has written six plays and is completing her third novel. This is her third production at the Fine Arts Center.
The series continues• 7:30 p.m., Friday, April 15 — “Virtual Expression and Immersive Art: Exploring Second Life,” with Renne Emiko Brock-Richmond.
