HAUNTING TOUR 2.0 Returns to Portland Stage

It's Baaaaack! Portland Stage announces the return of an original Studio Series Production Haunting Hour 2.0 curated by Dustin Tucker and featuring Maine authors: Joe Hill, Monica Wood, Callie Kimball, H.W. Longfellow, Ian Carlsen, and Rick Hautala.

As the break-out hit of the local theater scene last fall, Tucker knew he had to bring the successful Haunting Hour back "It is such a joy to celebrate and honor the incredible writers, playwrights, and artists that make this state great." With Haunting Hour 2.0 audiences can anticipate a chilling evening of live theater from some of Maine's most celebrated authors and playwrights. Come join us for an evening of raw, edgy, and dangerous short plays brought to life onstage for the first time ever! Monica Wood, celebrated Maine playwright and writer, had this to say "The Haunting Hour was one of the best shows I saw last year, and I can hardly believe I get to participate in round 2!"

Praise for last season's Hauting Hour:

Brilliantly theatrical...'Haunting Hour' is an original entertaining, visceral creation that celebrates the Halloween season in an especially classy way. - B'Way World

The Stagecraft abets masterful performances...grounded, ghostly and sometimes freaky. - Portland Press Herald
