Portland is garnering lots of attention lately—for our leadership in sustainability; for our food scene; for being, well, weird. And now we’ve caught the attention of Lauren Weedman, actor/writer of BUST. In the few months she spent here 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 Showfaux-spondent treat us? What does Portland look like through Weedman’s unique lens? Are we brave enough to find out? Directed by Rose Riordan.
