Corrib Theatre presents the West Coast Premiere of Gerard Mannix Flynn's James X, directed by Corrib Artistic Director Gemma Whelan. James X exposes this appalling, Ireland-specific story of institutional abuse and neglect that offers shockingly relevant parallels to the current U.S. child welfare, incarceration and immigration systems practices of turning a blind eye to justice for the nation's most powerless people under its care. The limited run dates for James X are February 13 through March 1, at New Expressive Works, 810 SE Belmont St., in Portland, Oregon.

KISS By Guillermo Calderón At Third Rail, Beginning March 15 Photo KISS By Guillermo Calderón At Third Rail, Beginning March 15
by BWW News Desk - Mar 1, 2019

In a Syrian city stricken by war, two couples meet for a quiet evening at home. In an intimate theatre in America, four actors attempt to make sense of an intriguing international work of art. Guillermo Calderon's riveting play-within-a-play blazes a trail through the twists and turns of cross-cultural understanding, challenging us to re-frame our notions of life, love, and what's lost in translation. Kiss is a genre-defying play filled with comedy and intrigue, with a riveting conclusion that raises questions about the ethics of theatre and the necessity of trying to imagine the unimaginable.
