STG presents The Suit at The Bagley Wright Theatre in Seattle, Tuesday, March 25 – Sunday, March 30, 2013. Co-presented by Seattle Rep and Seattle Theatre Group. Watch a preview of the performance via the Washington Post here!
Called “pretty close to perfect” by The New York Times, Peter Brook’s The Suit comes to Seattle after sold-out runs in London, Paris, and New York. (Long-time Seattle theatre-goers will remember how good Brook’s Hamlet was in 2001.) Combining a rich musical score with a remarkably simple staging, The Suit follows Philomen, a cuckolded husband who doles out an unusual punishment to his wife Matilda: he asks that she treat her lover’s abandoned suit as a guest of honor in their home.
Contains mature themes.
