Dead of Winter



The Bluestockings
February 1 - February 23, 2008

Review by Thursday

Three ghost-story style plays use familiar themes of séance, morgue, and clairvoyance. Still, tales presented from a different, often humorous, angle, making them intriguing and creepy. Sparse, specific design elements parallel style of show, leaving much to the imagination. Unusual location adds to haunting atmosphere. A fun and chilling evening.

LAST CHANCE to Hang with Dead this Winter....

Saturday, "Dead of Winter" very successful run fades into nothingness. Three more chances to see the show Followspot describes as: "...A fun and chilling evening." An auience member says: "It was like attending Le Grand Guignol in February." And the Pioneer Log says: "...this is lo-fi theatre at its best..." and of one of plays: "The last scene is the strongest, but only can it be seen to be believed."

So there you have it. It's been a great time, excellent cast and crew, and a profound pleasure to have a full production up and running in PDX again.
