Running time for 25 Saints: 1 hour, 30 minutes

Following the success of their critically acclaimed production of Jesus Hopped the A Train (2012 Gregory Award for Outstanding Production), Seattle theatre company Azeotrope is excited to bring two powerful shows in repertory (shows run on select dates, see the calendar below), the critically acclaimed Red Light Winter by Adam Rapp, and the Seattle premiere of 25 Saints by Chicago playwright Joshua Rollins.

"Red Light Winter and 25 Saints  are very potent as companion pieces," says 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."

25 Saints
Post-play discussion with playwright Joshua Rollins: Nov 2 & 3

In Red Light Winter, former college buddies Matt and Davis take off to the Netherlands and find themselves entangled in a bizarre love triangle with a beautiful, young prostitute named Christina. The romance they find in Europe unravels their friendship back home, and all three are forced to confront unexpected consequences resulting from their one night together. Written with a harsh, poetic beauty, Red Light Winter is a stunning story of obsession, isolation, and the desperate need for people to fulfill their hunger for intimacy.

25 Saints  is the story of Charlie and Tuck, a pair of Appalachian meth peddlers in rural Virginia who, on a very bad night, find themselves being hunted by corrupt local law enforcement after they shoot and kill the deputy. The play focuses on a group forgotten people who, when not plastered on CNN when a coal mine collapses, are left to fend for themselves. It is a grim look into a world of poverty that makes folks resort to crime and violence that many of us can choose to ignore--these are desperate souls struggling to survive in a hostile place, who have no options, who have run out of time.
