Bixby Elliot's
GIRL YOU KNOW IT'S TRUE


March 13- April 5th
A Baldfaced Farce About Impostors and Creative Intent

 

*THE effervescent, ever-present, Original Wife of George Michael, Rebecca M. Davis!!*


Ya gotta come see this - it’s been banned in seven countries for Undue Sassiness!








 

 

When Bixby, a 40-ish white playwright fails to get his work produced, he conjures up a radical new identity for himself: an impostor. His stand in - an African American Lesbian woman in a wheelchair - instantly shoots to fame. Needless to say, sh*t hits the fan!

Told in tandem with the infamous Milli Vanilli scandal, GIRL YOU KNOW IT'S TRUE is a hilarious and bold indictment of the institution of theatre and true intent behind the act of creation.

Seattle fringe veteran Ed Hawkins brings his signature spot-on savvy to the West Coast Premiere of Bixby Elliot's funny, smart, insightful, and lively play.

Featuring a cast of favorites, including Ian Bell as the hapless playwright, Andrew Tasakos as his patient boyfriend, Treavor Boykin & Andrew Lee Creech as "Rob & Fab", Barbi Becket, Daniel Christensen, and Josh List as the powers-that-be, and Rebecca M. Davis as the girl who knows the truth. Scott Shoemaker and Mike Blaylock round out the ensemble. Costumes by Scarlett O'Hairdye; Choreography by Diana Cardiff; Stage Manager Tim Crist.
