The Northwest Actors Lab and Bainbridge Performing Arts join forces in January to present the 5th Annual ONE ACT FESTIVAL. The festival showcases the very best talent Bainbridge has to offer in a selection of short comedies by renowned playwrights, along with several pieces written by our own talented scribes.

Director Dinah Manoff says this year’s festival is sure to be the funniest yet. “Also the ‘raciest!’” she quips. She urges audience members to book a sitter and grab their partner or pals and make plans today for a mid-winter, grown-up night out!

The full lineup with synopses and casting is available at www.bainbridgeperformingarts.org.
