2017-18 Season:

Belfast Girls by Jaki McCarrick
Directed by: Gemma Whelan
Venue: Shaking the Tree Theatre, 823 SE Grant St, Portland
Dates: Nov 17 – Dec 10, 2017

Five young women in famine-stricken Ireland are shipped off to Australia under a British government scheme to supposedly help “orphan” girls find a better life. En route, these strong and high-spirited women discover that they have been conveniently gotten rid of. Based on true accounts, it is a play about emigration and the female experience of the Famine, and of the powers-that-be scapegoating and victimizing its most vulnerable during a crisis.


Lifeboat by Nicola McCartney
Directed by: Avital Shira
Venue: Northwest Children’s Theatre, 1819 NW Everett St, Portland
Dates: Jan 12 – Feb 4, 2018

Lifeboat is the extraordinary true story of Bess Walder and Beth Cummings, teenagers whose ship was torpedoed while they were escaping the relentless bombing of World War II Britain. It is a story of courage, survival, and enduring friendship. A co-production with Northwest Children’s Theatre.


Quietly by Owen McCafferty
Directed by: Gemma Whelan
Venue: New Expressive Works, 810 SE Belmont St. Portland
Dates: April 13 – May 6, 2018

Two middle-aged men with a shared past meet in a bar in present day Belfast. Northern Ireland is playing Poland on the TV. The men have to talk, and the Polish bartender is their witness. This is a powerful story of violence and forgiveness in the aftermath of The Troubles.
