A special fundraising event for Endangered Species Project.
Running Time: Five hours, including two intermissions, plus a break long enough to eat a light meal (bento boxes from Tuxedos & Tennis Shoes are available for purchase, please see the Menu & Ordering tab above).                              

Endangered Species Project announces its most exciting project yet! For one night only, catch an amazing Seattle cast in one of the greatest of American plays never before professionally produced in Seattle: Eugene O'Neill's The Iceman Cometh.

Welcome to Harry Hope’s hotel and bar. We're all waiting for Hickey, our favorite foot-the-bill, keep-'em-coming traveling salesman, to make his annual binge-drinking stop here. We can't wait, because he's always the life of the party. But this trip, something’s changed. Hickey isn't drinking, for one thing. He wants us to change our drink-cadging, pipe-dream existences. He wants to sell us something: ourselves. Each of us, as we are. No lies, no illusions.Should we take him up on the offer? Would you?

Part of the series: Endangered Species Project

Endangered Species Project is an organization of distinguished Seattle theatre artists dedicated to presenting plays that seldom get full productions. While it is an essential duty of theatres to read and develop new work, there’s a parallel need to bring older neglected plays back to the stage. Through our simply staged readings, we lend live voices to plays that are now silent on our bookshelves.  

Founded in February of 2011, Endangered Species Project has consistently mounted monthly readings. Expanding from our core group of eleven, dozens of Seattle’s best and bravest actors have been instrumental in bringing new life to these plays. We strive to do nothing that gets between the audience and the play. We want to give full scope to those two most powerful forces in the theatre: a playwright’s ideas and the audience’s imagination.
