A Fuse Theatre Ensemble Production.
I Am an Actress returns to Fertile Ground for a world premiere production after a critically acclaimed workshop run at Fertile Ground 2017. The play is a trip down a dark, rocky, but also funny memory lane written and performed by one of Portland's pioneering trans performers, Jane Comer. Watch Jane overcome a severe speech impediment to become what she was born to be an actress. Come see the story of two women breaking out of the boxes the world tried to put them in: Joyce, who wanted to be the last thing the world expected her to be, perfectly normal. And her daughter Jane, who is an actress.
"People who have the talent for acting are born that way. You cant teach talent, you either got it or you dont. You can teach the craft of acting/writing but not the natural artist who creates it--that flows from within In my opinion, Comer has that gift!"-- Dennis Sparks Reviews"
Comer is a person of warmth and kindness, and her love for her work and the people in her world drew me in."-- Meg Currell, Edge Media Network
