Spring 2016 Hallie Ford Literary Series *Bonus at WU in #SalemOR

March 15, 2016 at 7:00 PM

In collaboration with the Hallie Ford Literary Series, the Department of Theatre will stage a dramatic reading of a new play by Andrea Stolowitz, winner of two Oregon Book Awards for Drama.

Stolowitz’s plays have been presented and developed at The Cherry Lane (NYC), The Old Globe (SD), The Long Wharf (CT), New York Stage and Film (NY), and Portland Center Stage (OR).

The LA Times calls her work “heartbreaking” and the Orange County Register characterizes her approach as a “brave refusal to sugarcoat…issues and tough decisions.”

A recipient of Artists Repertory Theater’s $25,000 New Play Commission, Andrea’s latest work Ithaka premiered at the theater in 2013 to critical acclaim. It had its mid-west premiere in 2014 in Chicago’s InFusion Theater. Her play Antarktikos world-premiered at The Pittsburgh Playhouse in March 2013 and was workshopped nationwide at The New Harmony Project (IN), Portland Center Stage’s JAW Festival, and at Seattle Repertory Theater.

She teaches playwriting and screenwriting at Willamette University and the University of Portland.
