Acclaimed playwright Tom Stoppard (Shakespeare in Love, Arcadia, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead) returns to the National Theatre with this highly anticipated play.

Hilary, a young psychology researcher at a brain science institute, is nursing a private sorrow and a troubling question at work, where psychology and biology meet. If there is nothing but matter, what is consciousness?

This is ‘the hard problem’ which puts Hilary at odds with her colleagues who include her first mentor Spike, her boss Leo and the billionaire founder of the institute, Jerry. Is the day coming when the computer and the fMRI scanner will answer all the questions psychology can ask?

Meanwhile, Hilary needs a miracle, and she is prepared to pray for one.

This film follows a group of strong-minded, committed people as they attempt to change the public opinion of a town, and eventually the entire country, to remove both dams on the Elwha River in Washington State. The film tells the story of the largest dam removal and river restoration project in history. It explores an extraordinary community effort to set the river free, and documents an unlikely victory for environmental justice. The camera soars over mountain headwaters, dives into schools of salmon, and captures turbines grinding to a halt as the project takes shape. Return of the River features people and perspectives on all sides of the Elwha debate, reflecting the many voices of the adjacent valley. The community comes to a consensus, setting the Elwha River free and showing the way to a more sustainable future. Amid grim environmental news, Return of the River offers a story of hope and possibility.

Running time:  69 minutes

“What a way to make a living!”

Our spring musical takes us back to 1979 and to the corporate workplace with Violet, Judy and Doralee as they live out their wildest fantasy: giving their boss the boot! Nominated for four Tony Awards and based on the 1980 movie of the same name, the comedy is full of hum-making music and plenty of laughs as the women turn the tables on their obnoxious and chauvinistic boss.

Director Margaret Hall says the play shows just how far women in the workplace have come since 1979. “Those of us who were working at that time, really did experience such circumstances,” said Margaret. “In a very humorous way, the story sends a message of the importance of taking control of your own life.”

The History of Sunshine Alley:  A history talk with stories and pictures. Local historian and preservation architect Boyd Pratt presents a local history talk on the history of Sunshine Alley.

Sunshine Alley is in the works to become a Friday Harbor destination. It is home to the newly rehabilitated historic Brickworks,  a venue for the farmers’ market, art markets, and many other public and private cultural, civic and family events. Alleys are always a bit mysterious; Sunshine Alley is no different with its mix of residential, industrial and commercial neighbors. Before redevelopment of the alley begins, discover its secrets, how it changed over time, and the people who lived and worked there.
