Here is Spokane. It lies about 270 miles east of Seattle, just shy of the Idaho panhandle, and is the largest city in Eastern Washington. While the city currently has no resident professional theatre, area community theatres abound and consistently provide platforms for local playwrights to develop new work, particularly Spokane Civic Theatre, Stage Left, and Ignite!
