Cornish was founded 99 years ago today! Celebrate with What Would Alice Say? or Attempts on Her LIfe.
Happy birthday, Cornish! It’s a party where you get the presents. Celebrate by diving down the rabbit hole with two unusually entertaining offerings! Tonight only, it’s What Would Alice Say? at the PONCHO Concert Hall, in which Soprano Natalie Lerch, baritone Robert Wade, and pianist Guinevere Saenger explore the world of Alice in Wonderland through music and theatre. Opening tonight and playing through November 23 is a postmodern identity mash-up, “a rollercoaster of 20th Century obsessions,” Attempts on Her Life by Martin Crimp. If weird and wonderful is what you’re looking for, tonight is your night.

Attempts on Her LIfe: “Martin Crimp’s 17 scenarios for the theater, shocking and hilarious by turn, are a rollercoaster of late 20th-century obsessions. From pornography and ethnic violence, to terrorism and unprotected sex, its strange array of nameless characters attempt to invent the perfect story to encapsulate our time.” Directed by Rhonda J. Soikowski.

Attempts on Her Life, November 14-16 and 21-23 8:00 p.m., and November 17 at 2:00 p.m. Raisbeck Performance Hall, 2015 Boren Avenue, Seattle.
