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.”

Lewis will have three-year residency at ART

Congrats to E. M. Lewis for her grant from the Mellon Foundation supporting her three-year residency at Artists Repertory Theatre through the National Playwright Residency Program. She will focus on her new play, THE GREAT DIVIDE, co-commissioned by OSF and ART.
