Former Washington State Insurance Commissioner Deborah Senn is appearing on stage this weekend at the Capitol Hill Arts Center, performing her new one-woman play “Until the Last Dog Dies.” The play chronicles her 2004 run for state Attorney General, and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s secret, $1.5 million ad campaign to kill it.
This is the second play Senn has written since leaving office, and while it may seem odd to most folk for a former politician to suddenly pursue a career in theater, it doesn’t to me. Senn was a theater major in college, only to be sidetracked by the political activism of the time. I myself come from a theater background, and have always considered my own foray into politics as at least part performance art.
Tickets are $20 and a can be purchased here, but act fast because it only runs through June 1.
