Our Next Show!
Discovery Bay Players is currently sorting through several ideas for its next production. Maybe a totally new show, a reprise of Faith Healer, or a local play reading.

Or Produce Your Own Winter Bird!
Peter Seacliff, former physician remorseful over his wife’s assisted suicide, buries himself in work as a Rare Book Room librarian. He crosses paths with Thiera, a mysterious blond woman, with reason enough to haunt the desolate Alaskan woods these past hundred years. With Sean Boyle, Irish-American teenager, leading the hunt, Peter and Thiera’s fates irretrievably entwine as we explore perception and transfiguration with gothic and humorous twists. Their subconscious need for each other leads to climactic mutual redemption. The other four roles are Alfred Pettibone (head librarian), Evelyn Finch (ancient birdwatcher), Killbear (Native-American policewoman), and Bob (non- speaking janitor/ghost/Audubon voice).
NOTE: A composite set represents a log cabin and a public library. Rapid scene changes are basically lighting shifts. Acting and language can carry a black-box show. Larger theaters should feature props, special effects, an owl-wing costume, and brief simulated nudity.
