FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – April 17, 2023
Buntport Theater Company debuts their latest creation:
A new play about stars, isolation, the
magic of libraries, and Laura Ashley
Join us for the world premiere of BEST
TOWN. Inspired by real events and fueled
by everybody’s recent encounter with
isolation, this production is Buntport’s
52nd full-length play.
BEST TOWN is a fictionalized account of
the caretakers of the non-fiction town of
Kitsault, an abandoned time capsule of
the early 80’s. Built to house mine
workers at the nearby molybdenum mine,
Kitsault was populated for less than two years but has been maintained by caretakers ever since.
Buntport imagines the lives of these isolated workers.
This production follows the debut of Buntport’s 51st play, The Death of Napoleon: A Play in Less
Than Three Acts, and is the final full-length offering of their 22nd season. Thanks to a generous
matching grant from the Olson-Vander Heyden Foundation, Buntport will be concurrently running
an end-of-season fundraising campaign to help support their next season. All new and increased
donations will be doubled through the end of June. Buntport has exclusively been writing and
producing new, unusual work since their inception. In addition to creating their own work,
Buntport provides affordable performance space for a lot of local artists. So far this season, they
have hosted 15 groups, producing work ranging from one-off comedy performances to full runs of
theatrical performances to fundraisers and conferences.
