A Hard-Hitting, Blue-Collar Drama Makes It Way to East-End Theatre Company
What would you do if your child went missing? For Maggie and Lou, the answer begins with a look back at the events that helped shape the present day. Don’t miss Lost Girls by John Pollono live on stage at Island ETC this Friday, January 11th.
The sixteen-year-old daughter of Maggie and Lou – former high school sweethearts, now divorced – goes missing during a winter storm. This forces Maggie and Lou to confront the legacy of their past decisions. Filled with poignant passions and dark humor, Lost Girls is a hard-hitting drama about the women of a blue-collar family struggling to rise above their limited prospects, in a world indifferent to their struggles, to prevent history from repeating itself.
Island ETC is Galveston County's only professional repertory theatre company and stages 5 to 6 productions a year. ETC's previous space was located on Postoffice Street, but Hurricane Ike devastated that location just as plans were being made to move in and take over the Strand Theatre.
Through the generosity of local patrons, ETC re-opened in July 2009 with a restaging of Cabaret, the show that put the organization on the map as a company.
Gear up for a moving experience when you make plans to see Lost Girls live on stage. Admission for adults is 30 dollars. Students and seniors may enjoy 25 dollar admission. Donations are welcome and help to keep the arts alive in Galveston County and at the historic Strand Theater space. All donations are tax-deductible.
At Riverbend Apartments in League City, Texas, we find it important to attend events that stray from your typical routine. With that being said, we hope that this event will add something unique to your day. Be sure to check it out on Friday!
