FEZZIWIG gets star treatment in Fertile Ground review

Read more about FEZZIWIG’S FORTUNE by Josie Seid and Sara Jean Accuardi in a delightful piece by Oregon ArtsWatch.

“Fezziwig tells his daughter, “To me, you were the brightest of lights.” Even on a screen, Fezziwig’s Fortune is a light unto itself. Just think how brightly it will shine when it makes it to the stage.”

Kitrosser and Jessup’s work CHOSEN by Willamette Week

Dan Kitrosser directed Alissa Jessup’s one-woman show CHOSEN for Fertile Ground.

Streaming February 7-15, 2021.

Willamette Week says: “Chosen chronicles a trip Jessup took to Colfax, Wash., where she first met Donna. I expected the journey to lead to a rumination on nature and nurture, but Jessup has no time for binary simplicities—her performance overflows with love for both the mother who raised her and the mother who gave birth to her. Spoiling the rest of Chosen would be abominable, which is just as well—the show is difficult to talk about, think about or write about without weeping.”

PCS commissions Pearson for new play

Anya Pearson will collaborate with Portland Center Stage to develop a new work.

“I am beyond honored to receive this commission from Portland Center Stage — and to be part of this amazing and formidable lineup of BIPOC playwrights. … We need theatre now more than ever! The collective breath, the joy, the vulnerability, the investigation of the soul, and the reimagining of what it means to gather, to hold space, and to dream of a better world for all of us.”
