Polaroid Stories Exposes Truth, Lies, and Myth

Polaroid Stories, by Naomi Iizuka, explores the fluid nature of truth, told through the experiences of street kids, society’s throwaways. Performed by Central Washington University’s Central Theatre Ensemble, the play will draw you into the turbulent world of homeless youth, for whom truth is a shifting wasteland of broken promises. 

Described as visceral, heartbreaking, and “brutally good,” the themes in Polaroid Stories will persist in your psyche long after the curtain falls.

Polaroid Stories will be performed at 7:30 p.m. on March 6, 7, 8, 13, 14 and 15 and at 2:00 p.m. on March 16, at the Milo Smith Tower Theatre. General admission is $12, $10 for seniors and students and $7 for CWU Students with ID. Tickets may be purchased online at, by phone at 509-963-1429, or in person at the Welcome Center on University Way or the Wildcat Shop Customer Service desk in the Student Union Recreation Center.

This play is intended for mature audiences only, and includes language and situations some patrons may consider offensive. There is some material that is unsuitable for children under 17.

Parking at CWU is free after 4:30 p.m., and on weekends, except in specially designated spaces and residence hall lots.
