The Argyros Presents: Lewiston/Clarkston Reading

Margaret Hamamoto

The Argyros presents a two night reading of Idaho playwright, and MacArthur Genius Award winner, Samuel D. Hunter’s plays Lewiston/Clarkston. The plays were nominated in 2019 for a Drama Desk Award for Best Play. Together the plays focus on two modern-day descendants of Meriwether Lewis and William Clark. Set at a failing fireworks stand in Lewiston, Idaho, and across the river at a big box store in Clarkston, Washington, the plays LEWISTON and CLARKSTON share the essential question: what is the true legacy of the great American push West?

Sawtooth Productions: Ripcord

Margaret Hamamoto

Ripcord tells the hilarious story when two seventy -something’s battle over control of a desirable room in an assisted living facility. Ripcord is a deeply satisfying and vastly entertaining story of two elderly women thrown together by a comic cosmic force possessed of a wicked sense of humor.
