Out of town: A SMALL FIRE in Portland Oregon

imagefrom the moderator: kind of late with this one

from the press release:

February 22 — March 23
On the Main Stage

By Adam Bock
Directed by Rose Riordan

A Small Fire follows John and Emily Bridges, a long-married couple whose happy, middle-class lives are upended when Emily is overcome by a mysterious disease. As this indomitable woman’s senses are slowly stripped away—smell, taste, sight—she finds herself suddenly and completely dependent on the husband whose endless devotions she had always taken for granted, and their lives transform in ways neither could have imagined.

“The play is raucous, funny and unexpectedly touching, as we are made intimate witnesses to a frank demonstration of how much of life, of love and of happiness remain within reach even when so much appears to be lost.” The New York Times

By the author of The Receptionist and The Thugs. PCS audiences will recognize the complete originality and deep humanity to be found in Bock’s characters.
