Connection, humanity, meaning.

The Actors Conservatory at ART presents:

 

The Oregon One Act Festival

Evening I May 20, 22 @ 7:30pm
Evening II May 21, 23 @ 7:30pm

Join us for two evenings of short plays featuring TAC’s second year students, and the directorial work of Artistic Director and Founder, Beth Harper, along with guest directors, Dámaso Rodríguez, Lava Lapai, Michael Mendelson, and Samson Syharath.

 

Comments from actors

“All the pieces have a ton of commentary on what it means to be human.”  

“There is lots of that dark comedy we love… there’s levity in the serious pieces and the lighter plays have deeply personal needs and high stakes.”

“Lots of love, loss, grief, and even sci-fi in our show!”
