Azeotrope returned to ACT’s Central Heating Lab this weekend with two new shows: Red Light Winter by Adam Rapp and 25 Saints by Joshua Rollins.
"Red Light Winter and 25 Saints are very potent as companion pieces," said director Desdemona Chiang. "They focus on opposite aspects of isolationism and the people who are willfully or carelessly neglected by society. And performing in a repertory system is a fantastic opportunity for this stellar company of actors to flex their talent."
In Red Light Winter, two former college buddies Matt (Richard Nguyen Sloniker) and Davis (Tim Gouran) find their European vacation entangles them in a bizarre love triangle with the prostitute Christina (Mariel Neto).
Meanwhile, a pair of Appalachian meth peddlers find themselves hunted in rural West Virginia by the corrupt local cops in 25 Saints.
Both shows play in repertory through Nov. 24.
Founded by Sloniker and Chiang, Azeotrope presents works designed to make Seattle audiences confront the marginalized and obscured in society. The company's production of Jesus Hopped A Train won several Gregory and Gypsy awards in 2012.
Because of themes and nudity, Red Light Winter is recommended for ages 18 and over. 25 Saints is recommended for ages 14 and over. Both shows are performed at the Eulalie Scandiuzzi Space in ACT's downtown Seattle theater. For more information, see Azeotrope’s website.
