Feather - A World Premiere!

You know, the title of this blog is "Trish and Harold's Weblog" (because I started blogging back in the stone age, and I wasn't creative enough to come up with a better title :) ). You've probably noticed, though, that Trish doesn't do much of the blogging... I'm the yakity-yak-verbose one who yammers on and on to anyone who listens to me; she just puts her head down and keeps on working.

What's she working on now, you ask? Well, let me tell ya... for the past month she's been working on Bobby Ryan's new play Feather - the first Portland production of the newly-relocated Lights Up Productions.

Playwright Bobby Ryan (who also appears in the show) has collaborated with Emmy-nominated
director Leigh Fondakowski to craft this rich, heartfelt story of two Missourian brothers facing their childhood demons - and asks the question, "How does a cycle of family abuse begin and do we have the power to break it?"

Trish fell in love with this show when she read the script, and is really excited to help bring it to the stage. The play opens tomorrow night (Friday, May 5th) at Theater! Theater! with a gala reception after the performance, giving you in the audience a chance to chat with the director and actors. The play runs three more weeks after that, Thursdays through Saturdays at 8:00 PM and Sundays at 2:00 PM, until March 28th.

Do try to make it down to see the show - from what Trish has told me, it promises to be quite a ride!

Hope you're all doing well... and that I'll see you at the show!
