Award-winning playwright Allison Gregory returns to Macha Monkey Productions for the second time with Cliffhouse, directed by Live Girls! Artistic Director Meghan Arnette. The show will run March 8 - March 30, Friday and Saturday evenings at 8pm Richard Hugo House, 1634 11th Ave, Seattle. Tickets are available through Brown Paper Tickets at cliffhouse.brownpapertickets.com.
The Cliffhouse is an ideal place to shed the stress and strain of daily living-until three strangers discover they are the unwilling guests. Under the watchful eye of their odd host, Cliff, it's clear that The Cliffhouse is more than a mere resort, and they won't leave until they uncover the real reason why they are there.
Cliffhouse features Vincent Delaney, Meaghan Halverson, Troy Lund, and Macha Monkey's Artistic Director Kristina Sutherland.
