University of Washington School of Drama says
As part of the School of Drama’s 75th Anniversary, we are celebrating the Seattle theatre community by hosting a series of FREE public readings of representative plays from seminal Seattle theatres of the past.

The final evening in the series features the Empty Space Theatre with a reading of Wallace Shawn's 'Aunt Dan & Lemon,' directed by M. Burke Walker. A reception will follow the reading.

Empty Space Theatre
The Empty Space Theatre was founded in 1970 by a group of University of Washington School of Drama graduates. The company quickly established a reputation for producing bold and provocative theatre with a dedication to new works and young artists. Some of Seattle’s most revered actors, designers, and directors cut their creative teeth with Empty Space. The theatre's first home was at the Pike Place Market, then moving on to Capitol Hill, Pioneer Square, and Fremont, before finally affiliating with Seattle University as its theater-in-residence just months before its closure. The Empty Space closed its doors in October 2006 at its location in the Jeanne Marie and Rhoady Lee Center for the Performing Arts at Seattle University due to a shortage of funds.


This series was created in partnership with UW World Series and One Coast Collaboration.
