Last Show: August 31, 2013
$20 general / $12 TPS, senior, military / $5 student 
Annex Theater

Annex Theater's showing of Precious Little ends this weekend! In this quietly poetic play, Brodie, a 42-year-old linguistics professor chooses to become a single parent. When genetic testing reveals a possible problem with her pregnancy, unexpected emotions complicate both her research of a dying language and her romantic relationship with Dre, a grad student with a mind of her own. Amid the noise, Brodie forms an unexpected connection with a "talking" gorilla at the local zoo. Be sure not to miss out on the brillant acting in this beautiful exploration of the limits of language. Learn how to buy tickets here. 
 
Book Launch Party for Shin Yu Pai's AUX ARCS

September 4
7 p.m.
Richard Hugo House

Celebrate the release of Seattle poet Shin Yu Pai's eighth collection, Aux Arcs, at Hugo House on Sept. 4. Coming from the French phrase referencing the Ozarks and literally meaning "of or from Arkansas," the title Aux Arcs simultaneously stands for Pai's time working in the South as well as her own personal "arc in the river." The book covers topics from cartography to race relations in a small town, looking also at global upheaval and politics alongside quotidian family life and relations.

Pai will read from her book, and Whiting Tennis, the book cover's artist, will play an acoustic set to open. More

Saint Mark's Episcopal Cathedral Certified as a "Green Sanctuary"

In June 2013, Saint Mark's Episcopal Cathedral, became the first cathedral and first west-coast Episcopal parish to achieve certification as a Green Faith Sanctuary for religious environmental leadership by GreenFaith, an organization that aims to inspire, educate and mobilize people of diverse religious backgrounds for environmental leadership. Guided by a specially formed task force, certification began with a two-year awareness and advocacy process involving sustainability education, leadership training, and worship services that celebrated creation themes.

Saint Mark's Cathedral also improved their facility to lessen its impact on the earth. You may notice a new bike rack, "No Idling" signs, an organic garden, the Saint Mark's Greenbelt, and a green acreage restoration project in cooperation with the city of Seattle. Additionally, the congregation of Saint Mark is developing an ongoing relationship with the Duwamish Tribe and others who are impacted by the pollution of the Duwamish Waterway. More
