Fertile Ground Festival 2012
The last 10 days of January will be a theatre-lovers dream here in Portland. Fertile Ground is a festival of new works taking place January 19th-January 29th in venues all over town! It is a veritable feast of theatre!
The performances range from fully-mounted productions to works-in-progress to staged readings and everything in between. It is truly a smorgasbord of theatre delicacies and they all can be sampled by purchasing a festival pass or buying individual tickets for specific events. Whatever you do, be sure to check out the calendar of events to find out what looks good to you.
What a great way to kick off the new year with lots of inspiring new work from the eclectic group of artists here in Portland. I am excited to see the work of several friends who are involved with Fertile Ground. Additionally, I am thrilled to participate in the festival this year with a reading of my short play "This is Temporary."
Nothing like a 10-day theatre festival to inspire and delight, and certainly put me in a good mood! Right on, Portland! Write on!
