Blue Diversion Toilet

We have to eat. On Whidbey, it’s cool to grow food, organically. It’s admirable to feed the hungry at food banks. We love and admire our talented chefs and bakers. We love to eat well prepared, nutritious, delicious food, especially in the company of friendly people. Nobody gets excited about toilets and elimination, but our bodies not only take in food, our bodies have to eliminate waste. Even on Whidbey, an island with Microsoft billionaires and well off Boeing executives, we have homeless people with few places to use the toilet. “The Magic Toilet” is a useful and practical sanitation device that disposes of human waste in a safe, practical, and low cost way. Many farmers recycle animal wastes in compost heaps. They turn horse, cow, goat and chicken manure into soil conditioners and fertilizers. By composting, we protect our lakes and sea shores from pollution that can damage the fresh and salt water fishing resources we so value for food and sport. Carnivore wastes are not so good for composting,… Category: Charitable. Classes & Lectures. Organizations. Outdoor. Volunteer. Wednesday, July 15, 2015, 4:00 PM – 5:00 PM. Freeland Library.

The Pillowman

With echoes of Stoppard, Kafka, and the Brothers Grimm, THE PILLOWMAN centers on a writer in an unnamed totalitarian state who is being interrogated about the gruesome content of his short stories and their similarities to a series of child murders. The result is an urgent work of theatrical bravura and an unflinching examination of the very nature and purpose of art. "Energizing…a blindingly bright black comedy…[what makes] the unsettling and exhilarating new play from Mr. McDonagh…so gripping as theater is how narrative art becomes the play's and the character's very life blood." —NY Times. "A complex tale about life and art, about fact and illusion, about politics, society, cruelty and creativity." —Financial Times. Category: Arts & Entertainment. Theater. Audience: Singles. College Students. Dads. Moms. Seniors. Cost: $14 students/seniors; $18 adults. Contact Name: Ned Farley. Contact Email: ocp@whidbey.com. Friday, July 17, 2015, 7:30 PM – 10:00 PM.

The Pillowman

With echoes of Stoppard, Kafka, and the Brothers Grimm, THE PILLOWMAN centers on a writer in an unnamed totalitarian state who is being interrogated about the gruesome content of his short stories and their similarities to a series of child murders.

"A complex tale about life and art, about fact and illusion, about politics, society, cruelty and creativity." —Financial Times. Category: Arts & Entertainment. Theater. Audience: Singles.
