Three one-act plays will be presented at Vancouver Community Theater’s annual festival beginning this weekend. 

Selections for the 18th annual event are:

  • “Forgotten Souls” adapted from a play by Yiddish playwright David Pinski (1872-1959)
  • “The Tangled Web,” a comedy from 1933, by Charles G. Stevens
  • “Females of Contrast” by Donna F. Weisser

“Forgotten Souls” is set in 1912 and is about a young woman and her two renters; “The Tangled Web” about a professor that reluctantly helps a thief is set in 1930; and “Females of Contrast,” set in Victorian times, is about a spoiled girl who dumps a near-by neighbor when her new servant catches her eye.

The plays will be presented 7 p.m. March 16, 17, 23 and 24, with additional matinees at 2 p.m. March 17 and 24 at the Minnehaha Grange, 4906 N.E. St. Johns Road in Vancouver, Wash. General admission is $7, seniors and children are $5. For more information call 360-892-4292 or email: vancouvercommunitytheater@gmail.com.

I will be posting photos and reviews of all three works by noon March 17.
