2018-2019 Season


Season Show


Written by Sean Devine
Directed by Chris Hansen
November 16 – December 2, 2018
It’s the fall of 1964. Bloody turmoil over civil rights is spilling onto the streets. A fearful ideology is growing from the conservative right. The threat of nuclear war is palpable. And a little skirmish in the far-off nation of Vietnam just won’t go away. With a presidential election looming, a group of “ad-men” working for Lyndon Johnson unleash the most devastating political commercial ever conceived, the “Daisy ad.” Based on true events, DAISY explores the moment in television history that launched the age of negative advertising, and forever changed how we elect our leaders. War was the objective. Peace was the bait. Everyone got duped.
“[DAISY] is a story that, through history’s irritating tendency to repeat itself…resonates so deeply with our current moment that it should be required viewing for all registered voters.” —Seattle Weekly. “…engaging and powerful…[A] fascinating piece of historical theatre…” —BroadwayWorld.com. “Devine’s writing is sharp and clever, and Daisy is clear, concise and even-handed.” —City Arts (Seattle, WA).

Stage Left presents live theater that makes you think. Our productions touch on Social, Historical, Political, Ethical or Religious topics.  We want you, the audience, not only to enjoy great theater that you wouldn’t see somewhere else, but to experience the show as either a mirror or a window. Maybe you’ll see yourself in one of the characters and have a mirror to your own life, or maybe you will see the experiences of someone you know and peek through their window. No matter what, our hope is that you come away with insight to a different perspective and create some conversation!

Mission Statement:

Stage Left Theater is both a complement to and a departure from traditional theater. Its mission is to provide unique, thought-provoking entertainment in an intimate setting; to engage, inspire and educate our audiences and our community; and to showcase both new and established artists and ideas relevant to the society in which we live.
