First Draft! “The Passion of the Bobby” by Christopher Bailey, Directed by Carissa Meisner Smit


Sunday, April 27 @7pm at Driftwood Players’ Wade James Theater located at

  • 950 Main St.
  • Edmonds, Washington 98020

Collaborate in the creative process of bringing a new play to life!

This is an opportunity for a playwright to see and hear what works in a newly completed, un-produced piece, and what does not. Actors present the play as a staged-reading. Afterwards, a moderated Q&A session and discussion with the dramatist and audience continues to explore the work. We hope you will plan to join us as we bring another exciting live arts experience to the Edmonds Community.

Admission is FREE

“The Passion of the Bobby” covers the final feverish months of Bobby Kennedy’s campaign for the president in 1968, from the April 4th murder of Martin Luther King, Jr., to his own shooting on June 5th. Through personal episodes, the play explores the issues he was confronting in his quest for the White House–from Vietnam to riots to racial discrimination–and, despite the tragic ending, offers hope that the impossible can still be accomplished.

Featuring: Terry Boyd, Dawn Cornell, Laura Crouch, Rik Deskin*, Jordan Fermstad, Cindy Giese French, Thomas Glass, Austin Gregory, James Lyle, Dan Niven, Gaelen Poage, John Ruoff, Asa Sholdez
