2012​

8 classic plays condensed and repackaged into short works by:

Shawn Belyeea, Kelleen Conway Blanchard, Webster Cromwell, Gavin Cummins, Brendan Healy, Scott Herman, Pony World Theatre, and Gabrielle Schutz.

Big Story Small

June 2010

7 Classic plays distilled into tiny packages by Scot Augustson, Emily Conbere, Brendan Healy, Erin Kraft, K Brian Neel, and Gabrielle Schutz.

Seattlest.com recommended Big Story Small as part of their "can't miss" weekend events.  They also had this to say:

"Pony World is little theatre with a big attitude...We found ourselves appreciating the simmering, subdued delivery of John Kobasic in Death of a Salesman or Pamala Mijatov in Les Liaisons Dangereuses...[A] nuanced transformation of what was into what we had just seen."

Emerald and the Love Song of the Dead Fishermen

August 2009

Presented with Annex Theatre 


By Brendan Healy

Designed by: Julia Evanovich, Pip Gordon, Kevin Heard, and Emily Sershon

"The actors bloom like bioluminescent algae...the set designer flips the bird at every big-budget theater in town." - The Seattle Weekly

"Playwright Brendan Healy uses a healthy dose of whimsy and charm to tackle big themes of loss and love...Healy definitely has a strong theatrical vision...a perfectly lovely example of how much a small theatre can accomplish when they think outside the box." - Seattlest

"Imaginatively ambitious...Healy's plays build stylized worlds that initially resemble ours and then fragment, with odd poetry pouring from their fissures" - The Stranger

"An elegant myth"- Seattle Gay News
