2018-19 season

“These three plays explore the realities, complexities, and challenges of life in the 21st Century. They celebrate the vast diversity that is the new face of Ireland, revel in the differences, and face the underbelly and lack of comprehension that still exists—the clinging to tradition that persists despite enormous progress. In pitting outmoded concepts of the past against the culturally transformed landscape we now inhabit, our season casts a light on life in the U.S. today and in our own city of Portland.” – Gemma Whelan, Founding Artistic Director.

Four Last Things by Lisa Tierney-Keogh
Directed by Gemma Whelan

Feb 1 – 24, 2019

Jane is dropping out of college, out of life. She is stuck on her family’s farm in rural Ireland with a father who cannot find the words to articulate his fears, and a dog who intuitively grasps her state of mind but cannot reach her. Four Last Things is an emotionally charged journey through a young woman’s inner battles with depression as those who love her struggle to understand.
