our 2016-2017 season

ASSISTANCE by Leslye Headland: For these young assistants, life is an endless series of humiliations at the hands of their hellacious boss, a powerful uber-magnate. In rare moments of calm when the phone calls stop rolling, Nick and Nora and their traumatized co-workers question whether all their work will lead to success—or just more work. Leslye Headland’s ASSISTANCE is a biting, high-octane satire about our attraction to power and what we’re willing to sacrifice to stay in its orbit.

Carnivora by Matthew B Zrebski: A woman awakes, screaming inside a burlap sack. She crawls out, bloody and battered to find she’s in a clearing in the Ozarks. She believes the world has ended, but remembers little. And so begins a nightmarish journey of discovery.  Mythical creatures, ghosts and memories haunt her as time leaps from past to future and back to present as she struggles to piece together the puzzle of her brutal reality. And now, she must make a decision that might affect the entire world. A savage, suspenseful and moving exploration, Carnivora exposes the desperation of the 21st Century as madness and beauty intertwine in this new era of uncharted territory for humanity... 

A Maze by Rob Handel: There are two kinds of mazes: the kind where you try to get through and out the other side, and the kind where you try to get to the center. A teenage girl recreates her identity after eight years held captive in a suburban basement; a band remakes itself post-rehab and post-hit-song; a self-taught artist gains a cult following for his 15,000- page comic book. Workshopped at JAW at PCS in 2010, we are proud to bring A Maze back to Portland for a full production.
