Things To Do on Bainbridge Island This Week – October 14-20

This week begins with the Columbus Day holiday, and while our list of Things To Do on Bainbridge Island This Week doesn’t include anything in honor of that 15th century explorer, Michael Zadoorian’s novel The Leisure Seeker and Jordan Hanssen and Greg Spooner’s real-life journey around the Olympic Peninsula via rowboat are two modern-day explorations. Of course, that’s not all that’s happening on Bainbridge Island this week. Without further ado, here are some of the Island’s best activities this week.

Great Falls by Lee BlessingIsland Theatre: Great Falls by Lee Blessing
7:30 pm @ Bainbridge Island Public Library (1270 Madison Avenue North)
Prize-winning author, Lee Blessing’s Great Falls begins in the uncomfortable confines of a car streaking through the Badlands of South Dakota. The occupants: a disaffected, man-hating teenager one week shy of her 18th birthday and the ex-stepfather she accuses of kidnapping her. Most plays would go one of two directions from here — toward reconciliation and redemption or toward increasingly disturbing commentary on the degraded American condition. Blessing chooses a tougher middle road instead. Admission: Free
