A play onstage at ACT Theatre in Seattle takes an unflinching look at life in everyday America. Middletown turns the spotlight on a small town and its inhabitants and is sparking conversations about the erosion of community in neighborhoods, as well as the existence of the mythical Seattle Freeze. Director John Langs from ACT Theatre and Patricia Lopez from the Seattle Department of Neighborhoods joined guest host Kim Holcomb from Evening Magazine to discuss the play and the issues communities face in real life.

Middletown runs through September 29th at ACT s Fall Theatre.

NOTE: Those who attend the 7:00pm performances on Sunday, September 22nd and Friday, September 27th are invited to take part in a post-play discussion about issues raised in Middletown, as well as how to help turn your neighborhood into a community of friends.
