Schmeater Shows

The Country Wife

March 23--April 14
A new adaptation by Rachel Atkins

TS is quivering with delight to have this creative team take on Wycherley’s classic comedy of coquettishness and cuckoldry. Adapted by the Gregory Award winning author of “Black Like Us” and starring Shermona Mitchell as the titular Mrs. Margery Pinchwife, this version promises to leave no stereotype unturned.


Shakespeare’s Lost Mixtape

March 26--April 11

"This wide and universal theatre presents more woeful pageants than the scene wherein we play in." Do you understand that? Neither do we, but this spring TS has invited some Superstar Seattle Scribes to quill short plays inspired by the Wonderful World of William.



April 19--April 21, 2018
A co-production with Jekeva Phillips and Word Lit Zine

This amazing weekend celebrating local authors, their words and the performances inspired by them returns to Theater Schmeater for its second year!


Welcome to Arroyo's

May 11--June 2, 2018
By Kristoffer Diaz

Recently arrived from NYC, director and teacher Jay O’Leary brings her passion project to Belltown. A play about the newest, coolest (and cleanest) lounge on the Lower East Side and a mystery about the very birth of Hip Hop itself. When Miss Jay pitched this show she closed her eyes, started to sing and pretend to spray paint the walls. Good enough for us.


She Kills Monsters

July 27--August 18
By Oui Nguyen

Director and Master Monster Maker Butch Alice returns to TS to take the reins of this monster of a show. A mash up of Dungeons & Dragons, Dramadey & Dice Throwing, Sisters & Swordplay, this play runs its serious nerd cred clean through The Schmee this summer.


Two Sisters and a Piano

September 14--October 6, 2018
By Nila Cruz

Seattle director José Amador helms this game of cat and mouse set in the heat of 1991 Cuba. Under house arrest, Maria Celia and Sofia negotiate love and life with their Russian jailers, but author Nilo Cruz refuses to paint his characters in black and white. We can’t wait for José’s take on this gorgeous script.


The Twilight Zone: Live!

November 16--December 15, 2018
from the CBS television show created by Rod Sirling

The Artistic Director of Schmee is directing Twilight Zones Live in 2018 – and he's got some ideas for what episodes he wants to bring into three dimensions. Maybe the one with guy who thinks one thing but really, it’s something totally different? What episodes would you like to see? Write him at and let him know. And why! Who knows?
