Angel on a 50th Birthday
When: Thursday, September 28, 2023 | 7:30 pm to 9:30 pm
Where: Snowy Owl Theater at Icicle Creek Center for the Arts, 7409 Icicle Road, Leavenworth

World premiere of a new play by local playwright Michael Caemmerer on the value of art.

For Dave's 50th birthday, his dad, a brilliant and well-regarded artist, paints him a special gift. When his dad shows up at his front door with the painting in a protective blanket, Dave excitedly unwraps the new addition to his collection, unveiling what is without a doubt the worst painting his dad has ever done, one that if he has his way will never hang on a wall in his house.

Centered around this actual painting, Angel on a 50th Birthday is a play about how we assign value to the things we collect, and how hard it is to let go of some things no matter how much we dislike them.

“Angel...” is a work of ‘memoir-ical fiction.’ It is a story based on pieces of the life of the author and so is fully true. And yet the story never happened. The painting, which is real and the impetus of the story, is in the play taking on the role of making you decide if it’s worth hanging.

This play was incubated by The Hundredth Hill in Bloomington, Indiana, and developed for production by the wonderfully talented people of the Full Circle Theatre Company.
