Thu  10/17/19   Macbeth  - Portland Center Stage 7:30 pm
"Shakespeare’s infamous tale of political gluttony and supernatural vengeance finds refreshing new life in this piercing, stripped-down adaptation that creates a taut, contemporary thrill ride. Three women tackle all the roles. Perennially relevant and breathtaking, Macbeth is a drama that demands to be seen — whether it’s your first or five hundredth time."


Sun  10/20/19   Orlando - Pacific University  2:00 pm
"Virginia Woolf’s novel Orlando is the sexy, ever-surprising epic of a life that spans centuries, shifts genders, and defies labels. Adapted for the stage by Sarah Ruhl, a brilliant contemporary playwright." *Free* for students.




Sun  10/20/19   Bakkhai  - Shaking the Tree 5:30 pm
“Euripides was a playwright of the fifth century BC who reinvented Greek tragedy, setting it on a path that leads straight to reality TV. His plays broke all the rules, upended convention and outraged conservative critics. The Bakkhai is his most subversive play, telling the story of a man who cannot admit he would rather live in the skin of a woman, and a god who seems to combine all sexualities into a single ruinous demand for adoration. Dionysus is the god of intoxication. Once you fall under his influence, there is no telling where you will end up.”





Fri    10/25/19   The Baltimore Waltz  - Profile Theatre at Imago 7:30 pm
"Paula Vogel’s fantastical satire takes us on a whirlwind odyssey through Paris, Amsterdam, Munich and Vienna, and is part heartfelt tribute, part political indictment written at the height of the AIDS crisis."




Thu  10/31/19   Women of Will  - Portland Playhouse 7:30 pm
"Part masterclass / part performance: Funny, fierce, deep and accessible, Women of Will is the bonus content to Shakespeare’s plays that you have been searching for. Join master Shakespearean actor/dramaturg, Tina Packer as she conjures up and deconstructs William Shakespeare’s most famous female characters."
