Little Brown F**king Machines

Hello, Colleagues,

We're busy preparing our three readings of Little Brown Fucking Machines for the PATA Fertile Ground Festival this January.

Life is always throwing hurdles in our path, and it's our job in theatre to just keep jumping over them, right?

Therefore, guess what, I need a replacement actor for our project.

If you are a man (has to be a man) who can play a drunken soldier who molests a young girl (please remember this is a reading), please send me an email. This role also will play another character--a policeman.

The dates of the readings are:

January 21st (Noon reading at the Armory)
January 23rd (evening)
and January 26th (evening)

I would sure love to hear from you if you are interested.

There is a $50 stipend at the end of the project. It is more of a thank-you than anything else, so don't quit your day job.

We will rehearse you around your schedule as best we can.

Hope you'll think of coming on board.

Preference will of course be given to any of you sweeties I've worked with before!

Many thanks--

Hello, My Name Is A play by Jenni Miller

It’s a story about a Man and a Woman. Its about the heartbreaking circumstances that change her life. Its about how she cannot amend her circumstances and her struggle to regain her innocence in an institutionalized world. It’s about time, the reality of time, time without hope, without revolt. It’s about forgetfulness and passing into nothingness. It’s about loss, it’s about rape and it’s a wild ride…

“All rape is an exercise in power, but some rapists have an edge that is more than physical. They operate within an institutionalized setting that works to their advantage and in which a victim has little chance to redress her grievance. “ Against Our Will; Men, Women & Rape By Susan Brownmiller

Jenni Miller is a local actress, playwright, storyteller, community advocate. She's performed locally with Sowelu Theater Company, Curious Comedy, ART, Lakewood, Brainwaves, Hart, and the Magdeline Theater Company. She's a current member of Playback Theater Company and PDX Playwrights.

One of the most beloved theatre comedies of all time, this play keeps the audience in stitches as Mortimer Brewster decides whether it's wise to marry the girl of his dreams and bring her into a family of questionable repute. How will she ever tolerate his brother Teddy, who is convinced he is Theodore Roosevelt and spends his days digging locks in the basement? Or his two sweet aunts who fill those locks with the bodies of the unfortunate lonely old bachelors who've been invited for a sip of elderberry wine laced with their own special (lethal) solution? Come enjoy this smash hit that never disappoints audiences, young and old.
