Starting Thursday, November 15th, Island Stage Left presents Slowgirl – a story by Greg Pierce told with humor and sensitivity, of a friendship between a reclusive uncle and his teenage niece as they navigate the delicate regions of guilt, fear and truth.  

Becky, a seventeen year old girl, has fled to her hermitic uncle’s retreat in the Costa Rican jungle to escape the aftermath of a terrible accident.

The week they spend together forces them both to confront who they are and what they are running from. It centers around the many ways tragedy can unmoor a life and the power of family to both wound and heal.

Suitable for children 12 and up. Occasional colorful language. A story for everyone who has ever made a mistake.

Thursdays through Sundays, November 15 through December 16
  Except Nov. 22 & 23 (Thanksgiving)
Thursdays – Saturdays at 7:30pm, Sundays at 4:00 pm
At the Marie Boe Building at SJC Fairgrounds
