...and what happens?
Actually what happens is Open City, a project dreamed up by PlayGroup, Portland Center Stage's ongoing playwriting workshop. In short, we all nominated eight locations in Portland, wrote them on paper, tossed the paper into a hat (or a mayonnaise jar...I can't remember), drew our locations, then drew our number of players. And wrote. And it's freakin' cool. (Except my piece.)
The playwrights are: Althea Hukari, Shelly Lipkin, Ellen Margolis, Steve Patterson (I just wandered in from the street, looking for beer), Andrea Stolowitz, Patrick Wohlmut, Nick Zagone, and Matthew B. Zrebski. Matt's directing. The cast is: Deirdre Atkinson, Ben Buckley, Timothy M. Hill, and Lara Kobrin.
It's Monday, February 2, 2009, at 7:30pm at The Gerding Theater, Portland Center Stage at The Armory (that's the big stage, folks). Admission is free. Plus it's the cherry on top of the fabulous Fertile Ground City-Wide Festival of New Works, which means there's a party afterwards. With beer. So wander in.
