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.”
