January 30 – February 3
Seattle writer Elizabeth Heffron’s newest work, The Weatherman Project (working title), will be workshopped during the festival and will be directed by Sheila Daniels. Co-written with former Weatherman member Kit Bakke, the play tells the story of five young people in the midst of the Vietnam era and the road that leads them to the Weather Underground, a radical anti-war group.
Heffron is one of eight writers in Seattle Rep’s Writers Group, a collection of local playwrights who have been awarded a two-year residency to develop and refine new works using Seattle Rep resources.
Kit Bakke is a founding member of Seattle7Writers. She’s written Miss Alcott’s E-Mail, Dot to Dot and a chapter in S7W’s Hotel Angeline. Between her political and writing days, Kit was a pediatric oncology nurse and a management consultant. She has two masters’ degrees, two daughters, two grandchildren and one husband.
