Re: A NW premiere in Portland this week!
- Kudos to director Meredith Weiss and cast of "Refuge" for an honest, funny and affecting production at the Mago-Hunt Theatre recently. This really did prove the exception to the rule that "you get what you pay for." It may have been free, but it was definitely of professional caliber. I'm sure the near-capacity audience felt the same way, judging by the roars of laughter. Many thanks!~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Subject: [pdxbackstage] A NW premiere in Portland this week!REFUGEby Jessica GoldbergMago Hunt Theater, University of Portland3 Performances ONLY! Admission is free! (Just show up)11/28--11/30 (Wednesday through Friday this week only)7:30 pmSurrogate mother by default, a tough and resilient Amy has been left to care for her sarcastic, sickly brother and rave-addicted sister since Mom and Dad split for Florida. Life has assumed a routine of sorts, until Amy meets a drifter named Sam, and catches his attention. He wants in, but she seems to want out. Maybe their refuge lies somewhere in between.Playwright Jessica Goldberg (Hologram Theory) won the 1999 Susan Smith Blackburn Award for this play before premiering it in its now published form at Playwrights Horizons in NYC. Don’t miss this rare opportunity to see the NW premiere of this touchingly dark and funny play by one of America’s sharpest rising young playwrights.I'm a graduate student, and I directed the play. The school hasn't done much in terms of publicity, so I figured I'd do what I could to get the word out. Hope the play gets some of you interested. It's a short evening (show only runs about 85 minutes, no intermission) and its free... so if you're looking for a cool new play to see this week, hope Refuge might be it!Thanks,Meredith Weiss
