JAW: A Playwrights Festival

REBECCA JACOBSON
4 and 8 pm Friday-Saturday, July 26-27., Saturday July 27 | Free.
Gerding Theater
128 NW 11th Ave.
 
Portland Center Stage’s annual Just Add Water festival features four in-progress works drawn from a national search. This year’s lineup is smaller than normal and unusually dark, with plays about mass murder at an apartment complex, a fire that destroys a young artist’s work and cruel McDonald’s managers. Plays workshopped at JAW often pop up on regional stages across the country, so this is a chance to see the theater of the future.

Where: Gerding Theater
Phone: 445-3700
Address: 128 NW 11th Ave.
