"The Other Country" Theatrical production of the story of Thea & Andrew Foss

First remembered as the character Annie Brennan in a series of stories in the Saturday Evening Post in the late 1920’s, Thea Foss came to America’s notice in film and TV as “Tugboat Annie” between 1930 and 1950. In 2006, local filmmakers Nancy Bourne Haley and Lucy Ostrander researched and co-produced a film, Finding Thea about this remarkable woman and her Norway-to-the-Pacific-Northwest saga.

We are so pleased to announce that a full production of the English language version, The Other Country, featuring local actors, musicians and community members, will be mounted here at the Foss Waterway Seaport on August 10 through 13, 2017. For the general audience, school-age through the elderly, it will be a local history lesson, an allegoric insight into and appreciation of our immigrant nation, and inspirational motivation to live courageously with compassion.
