Last Chance for Slowgirl

Only four more showings of Slowgirl and people who’ve seen it are raving about it. This is your last chance to see it before it’s gone.

It’s 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.

This Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 7:30pm, and Sunday at 4:00 pm at the Marie Boe Building at SJC Fairgrounds
Admission FREE – Donations appreciated

Slowgirl closes on December 16th and right after that Island Stage Left opens Christmas Memories on the 20th.
