"THE AVE.", a Dramatic Play by Ed Corrigan


THE AVE. is a new drama written by local playwright, Ed Corrigan. The play is based on Ed’s poem, of the same title, which was a finalist entry in the Seattle Times 2011 Poetry Contest. The show opens at the Maple Valley Arts Center (The Leaf) on August 18th for a two week run. It is being directed by Maple Valley native, Melanie Studley. Melanie is a Theater and Expressive Arts graduate of Evergreen State College. She has more than five years of working experience covering all aspects of performance art with The Village Theater in Issaquah.

THE AVE. is a drama played out on Seattle’s own University Avenue. It tells the story of a young homeless woman named Cecilia. Our Cecilia grew up as a child prodigy musician in Ritzville, Washington. She received a full music scholarship at The U and had a very successful freshman year including a spring solo performance with the Seattle Symphony. All was well until second quarter sophomore year when Cecilia rebels against her regimented upbringing, loses her scholarship and winds up living on the streets. The play begins at this point in her life and becomes Cecilia’s own struggle for survival and of a relentless, courageous pursuit of true self. THE AVE. is a place of cultural and inner conflict – a street of dreams fulfilled and unfulfilled – a dangerous place. Ultimately, the drama leads to redemption but not in a way you may expect.
