Richland Players Presents Hanford-Based Production by Local Playwright


RICHLAND, Washington – Inspired by the story of her own parents, the late Kennewick playwright Bonnie L. Rutherford will see her vision of a Cold War-era production come to fruition at the premiere of her play at Richland Players this week-end.

According to a press release issued by the agency of the play’s director, Ted Miller, White bluffs will debut at Richland Players on Friday, Oct. 15 at 7:30 p.m. to launch a list of six performances.

The creatives behind White bluffs offered the following synopsis for their theatrical production:

Set in WWII Hanford Trailer Camp, White Bluffs is the story of newlyweds Danny and Kim. Young, enthusiastic and somewhat naive, Danny and Kim share a dream of stopping traveling from job to job and moving to a farm where they can raise a family.

Their Hanford neighbors, Willy and Gladys Bailey, are the couple’s closest friends. But the Baileys could threaten everything if they found out the secret of the young couple.

Eventually, the suspicious climate in Hanford threatens their dreams, Danny and Kim must escape depression and survive in Hanford. Only one thing stands in their way: the truth!

Rutherford graduated from Kamiakin High School in Kennewick. She did her graduate studies between Columbia Basin College and Eastern Washington University. She returned to eastern Washington in 1996 and was a full member of the Tri-Cities theater community until her sudden death in 2005.

To make this production as authentic as possible, Rutherford visited the Hanford site and spent a lot of time researching its historical accuracy. She produced her first original play in a Las Vegas theater in 1995 to critical acclaim. His second production, a romantic comedy titled Bytes of love, was produced at Columbia Basin College in 2000.
