BAAY Presents Hush: An Interview With America

A lion roams across the country. An anchorwoman bursts through a TV screen for a bite of apple pie. The FBI lurks in the microwave. A lamb wanders the Illinois countryside searching for her mom. A father is dizzy from trying to keep up with his little girl who's quickly growing up. And under an apple tree in her backyard in the small town of Hush, Kansas, a 12-year-old "woman" named Maggie Parks is at the whirling center of it all.

Hush: An Interview With America is a play about the wild ride of growing up, about struggles of fathers and daughters, and about inner vision and personal voice. Performances run July 14 and 15 at the BAAY Theatre, and will feature students ages 13-17. Directed by Logan Hyer-Long. Admission by donation at the door.

About BAAY: Founded in 2006, Bellingham Arts Academy for Youth (BAAY) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to enriching children’s lives through the exploration of the arts. We believe that the arts are a basic and essential component of all children’s education. We serve approximately 1400 children ages 4-17 annually in our EduArts and Theatre programs, and provide over $20,000 a year in annual tuition waivers to remove financial barriers to participation.

        We acknowledge that Whatcom County is located on the unceded territory of the Coast Salish Peoples. They cared for the lands that included what we’d call the Puget Sound region, Vancouver Island and British Columbia since time immemorial. This gives us the great obligation and opportunity to learn how to care for our surrounding areas and all the natural and human resources we require to live. We express our deepest respect and gratitude for our indigenous neighbors, the Lummi Nation and Nooksack Tribe, for their enduring care and protection of our shared lands and waterways.
