Portland is garnering lots of attention lately — for its leadership in sustainability; for its food scene; for being, well, weird. And now Portland has caught the attention of Lauren Weedman, actor/writer of BUST. In the few months she spent in this city in the spring of 2011, Lauren’s imagination was captured by all things Portland. And so we’ve asked her to write a play. About Portland. How will this former Daily Show faux-spondent treat us? What does Portland look like through Weedman’s unique lens? Are we brave enough to find out? This world premiere play was commissioned by the “Innovative Minds” program at Perkins Coie.
