Best friends, social trends and occasional murder. It’s September 1989.on account of her uncanny forgery skills, smart girl Veronica Sawyer is taken into the tight circle of Westerberg High’s popular girls known as the Heathers (because, duh, they’re all named Heather). But with social popularity comes a level of cruelty that Veronica can’t stomach, and she quietly defects from the inner circle. Hooking up with moody bad boy, Jason “J.D.” Dean, she becomes complicit in his homicidal takedowns of the school’s popular crowd. Wickedly funny, oddly romantic, relentlessly intense, and occasionally powerful, this is a surprisingly truthful parable for anyone who’s ever been in love, in trouble, or in high school.
Performances are April 6, 7, 8 and 13, 14, 15 Friday & Saturdays @ 8pm (Doors @ 7pm), Sundays @ 4pm (Doors @ 3pm) at Erickson Theatre Off Broadway (1524 Harvard Avenue, Seattle).
Note: Though our show is all ages, parents should be aware that Heathers contains multiple R-rated scenes presented in a darkly comedic tone that include sexually explicit jokes, course and potentially offensive language including sexual orientation and body shaming, instances of simulated suicide, sexual assault, gun use and school violence, as well as simulated teenage sex, drinking and drug use.
