If you haven’t been to a show at Stage Left, one of the local theater scene’s newer additions, the 8th annual Hit & Run short play fest is an ideal sampler. The festival features 11 plays written by playwrights from across the U.S., including five from the Spokane area: Ron Ford, Paul Ruch, Sandra Hosking, Josh Watkins and Mike Noel. Seven local directors lead 34 actors in the lineup of all comedies. One takes a humorous look at Jekyll and Hyde, and another follows the laborious decision between a couple deciding whether to update their Facebook relationship status. It’s a small space and these shows usually sell out, so advanced purchase is recommended.
Fri, Nov. 7 and Sat, Nov. 8 at 7:30 pm • $10 • Stage Left Theater • 108 W. Third • spokanestageleft.org • 838-9727
