"Truth is like cod liver oil; it tastes bitter and no one wants it. So you make them laugh, and while their mouths are open, you pour it down their throat." - Harold Clurman

"Born Yesterday" is a scathing comedy about the idealism visualized in the United States Constitution corrupted by greed, ignorance, self-service, and disillusion shortly after World War II.

The self-made millionaire, Harry Brock, has thieved his way up the ladder to purchasing Senators. Paul Verral, an international journalist, sidles his way into Brock's new Washington D.C. circle, endearing himself to the criminal who hires Paul to class up his main squeeze: a "showgirl" of great beauty and no desire to behave properly among the stuffed shirts, nor the effort needed to think.

Without altering text or era, Theatre9/12 re-interprets this hysterical play paralleling today's events.

Since 2008, the 501(c)3 Theatre9/12 - Actor Development has facilitated these actor-produced plays where every ticket is "pay-what-you-can-afford" without intimidating "suggested donation." Every penny over expenses is divided among cast and crew only.

At Theatre9/12, trained and working actors, both union and non-union, continue to develop their talents and skills through Master Classes and performances. As well, all students pay whatever they can afford. Their passions climax with productions presented through the Actors' Equity Association Members' Project Code or their own similar contract which our staff assists these actors in making these projects come to life.

All performances at Trinity Parish Hall, 609 8th Avenue, Seattle, WA 98104
Free parking at Skyline Garage.
