SecondStage: The Other Place

August 9 - 12, 2017

Dinah Washington Cultural Arts Center*


Just as Juliana Smithton's research leads to a potential breakthrough, her life takes a disorienting turn. During a lecture to colleagues at an exclusive beach resort, she glimpses an enigmatic young woman in a yellow bikini amidst the crowd of business suits. One step at a time, a mystery unravels as contradictory evidence, blurred truth and fragmented memories collide in a cottage on the windswept shores of Cape Cod.


* This production is co-sponsored by and presented at The Dinah Washington Cultural Arts Center. For directions and more information, see below.
