11/18: "Blink" from Third Rail Repertory

Third Rail Repertory Theatre presents
an interpreted performance of

DATE & TIME: November 18th at 7:30 pm
LOCATION: CoHo Theater - 2257 NW Raleigh St, Portland, OR 97210
TICKETS: $25 & up (check possible discount options)
INTERPRETERS: KT Corlett and Sam Jackson

"Giving up grief's like giving up anything. When you start to think the battle's won that's when you're most exposed."

After each loses a parent, Sophie and Jonah struggle in parallel lives of isolation and loneliness, unable to find a foothold in the unfamiliar blur of London life. With both adrift and sinking fast, Sophie opens the door to an unconventional connection, and Jonah gladly walks through. Their worlds expand and contract - boundaries drawn, erased, and reconfigured. Blink offers a tender, quirky, painfully awkward, sweet, and often-times hilarious look at the fundamental human need to be seen - and the unexpected people who show up for us when we need it most. 


We are offering Pay-What-You-Will tickets to anyone who identifies as BIPOC for all of our programming this season. Use the promo code: BIPOC at checkout!

11/19: "Sorry Wrong Number" & "The Hitchhiker" at PCC

Portland Community College presents
an interpreted performance of

stage adaptations of the radio dramas by Lucille Fletcher

  DATE & TIME: Saturday 11/19/2022 at 7:00 pm
LOCATION: The Little Theatre, PCC Sylvania
                        12000 SW 49th Ave. Portland, OR 97219

                  $5 students, PCC staff, veterans, and seniors; $10 general
INTERPRETERS: Marie Groshans and Courtney Borchert

Come see two plays considered “the greatest audio dramas ever written”. But wait! We’re producing them entirely for the stage!

In Sorry, Wrong Number, we meet Mrs. Stephenson, a sickly woman restricted to bed with only a telephone to connect her to her 1943 New York community. When she overhears a murder plot on a crossed line, she races the clock to save an unknown woman from a date with death! Will she succeed? Can she get anyone to believe her? And why is her husband so late in coming home? Come find out!

In The Hitchhiker, young Ronald Adams sets out from 1941 Brooklyn for the sunny shores of California, but he can’t avoid seeing the same Hitchhiker over and over. Is it a trick of the mind, or has Adams entered a different, relentless roadside reality?

In our first live and in-person production since the pandemic, we present these two suspenseful plays, each masterfully focusing on the isolation each character must overcome to avoid their own bitter end

Trigger warnings: high suspense, strangulation, and existential angst.

Running time: 90 minutes including a brief intermission (where you can view our Art Gallery!)
