Three nights left to see ‘The Cake’ at Orcas Center

There are just three more performances left to see “The Cake,” Orcas Center’s Black Box production that islanders are calling, “charming, “funny” and “thought-provoking.”

Director Melinda Milligan reflects on her motive to create this production.

“I was given ‘The Cake’ play to read by a friend in South Carolina a few years ago and immediately fell in love with the writing, the humor and the poignant portrayal of its all-too-human characters,” she said. “Bekah Brunstetter (the author) takes a story seemingly ripped from the headlines and turns it into a thoughtful, sometimes unsettling, look at ourselves. I hope you love it as much as I do.”

The last three performances run on Sept. 21, 22, and 23 at 7 p.m. Please note: The Black Box Theatre at Orcas Center has limited seating, so there are only 40 tickets available each night. Tickets range from $15-$47 and are available at, or by calling 360-376-2281 x 1. Parental guidance is suggested due to strong language and adult themes. Masking is required in the theatre.
