A quick note from our beloved Playwright and Director, Brendan Mack: “It is important to note that in the ever changing world we live in, the one unchanging constant is that people love theatrical fog. No matter how bad your day is, or what life events may be pushing you around and making you feel trapped – oh so trapped, so unbearably trapped – you know that would all change if you were given the opportunity to run through a room full of theatrical fog. We are changing people’s lives. And by people we mean you. And by lives, we mean fog. And by you, we mean machine.” While this show may not give you that exact opportunity, it will be close!
On the surface, The Fog Machine Play is a series of short plays, each strung together by the use of a fog machine that was purchased for a production in 2013 but was never actually used. Never given the chance to live up to it’s full potential. We had to give it it’s time in the spotlight. While The Fog Machine Play explores the various uses of theatrical fog, it also explores what it is like to produce fringe theatre in this day and age. It toys with what can (or cannot) happen during a live show and how an ensemble rises to the occasion when faced with the challenges of live theatre. Part sincere and part absurd, this show will truly be an “unfogettable” once in a lifetime experience.
Join Copious Love Productions for our twelfth full-length production. The Fog Machine Play was created by Seattle Drag Artist and STAGEright Artistic Director Brendan Mack and developed into reality with the help of Copious Love’s monthly Writing Group, Artistic Director Chelsea Madsen and Associate Artistic Director Rachel Tyrrel.

PARKING Let’s face it, we’re in the International District and parking can suck. Be sure to allow extra time to find a spot! We highly recommend carpooling, busing or taking the LIGHT RAIL!
REMINDER! Street parking is monitored until 6pm. However, there are several lots to choose from if you can’t find something for free! Make sure not to leave any valuables in your car and also consider an alternative form of travel since game days can be tricky.
AGAIN, WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND TAKING THE LIGHT RAIL! It drops you off right by our venue! OR download The Parkopedia app for your smartphone.
SODO/INTERNATIONAL DISTRICT is one of Seattle’s best neighborhoods. This community hosts some of the best restaurants, bars, and spots. Vibrant and continuously bustling, this is a great spot to make your theatre date complete!
COPIOUS LOVE RECOMMENDS:
The Food Court at Uwajimaya– there is nowhere better! So many choices! SO MUCH VARIETY! Plus, its right across the street from the venue!
Samurai Noodle– Incredible Ramen that will keep you full for the whole show! Quick and scrumptious!
Boiling Point– If you can look at the menu and not drool, I don’t know what to say. Delicious options and great service.
