November 5           Switzerland            by Johanna Murray-Smith

When a mysterious visitor arrives at the secluded home of famous crime writer Patricia Highsmith, fictional murders become a dangerous reality.

Pat Moran a devotee of mystery and suspense on the stage, is eager to dive into the world of Patricia Highsmith in November’s production, Pat will give us all the spine tingling we can handle!

December 3             Angel Street            by Patrick Hamilton

This Victorian thriller (aka Gaslight) delivers the perfect combination of suspense, intrigue and delicious revenge.

Julie A. Akers will bring her wealth of experience to December’s production. Set in a gas-lit Victorian world, Angel Street explores themes all too relevant today.  *Sponsored by Culver Glass*

January 14             The Sea Horse          by Edward J. Moore

In a waterfront bar, Harry and Gertrude fight, makeup, spin dreams, and share their deeply hidden private dreams. A love story.

The Sea Horse we explores the relationship between two wounded souls, too afraid to get near but too afraid to leave each other. As an actor, teacher and director, Jeanne Rogers will guide her actors with sensitivity and skill.

   by Andrea Stolowitz**

A new play by a Portland area playwright presented as part of Fertile Ground: A City Wide Festival of New Works.

Recent Unsettling Events centers on a small liberal arts college which erupts in protests over its required Western Civilization class. As the fights intensify and the entire campus takes sides, the complexities of identity politics, the limits of free speech, and the consequences of preserving the status quo are examined.

        March 3           Bible Stories for Agnostics       by John Longenbaugh**

Stories from Genesis are re-imagined for the contemporary age in six short plays, following the fortunes of Adam and Eve from Eden out into the world.

This is another featured new work by a local playwright and Matt Pavik is a great match to direct this slightly tilted look at familiar tales. *Sponsored by Robert Conklin*

April 7         Apologia                          by Alexi Kaye Campbell

A witty, topical and passionate story about generations, secrets and the stories we tell about our lives.
