It’s about time!

March 4, 2014


After 2 years of various studies within our team (teaching in Alaska, Going to grad school, Apprenticing with a regional theater company, and other adventures we have been up to) we are coming out of hibernation soon!

Currently, we are accepting script submissions for a future project in the Fall of 2014.

Thank you for following us and we will be in touch with more information as soon as we have it, friends!


A Co-production between

Portland Playhouse and The Quick and Dirty Art Project Presents

Phaedra’s Love
By Sarah Kane
Directed by Jennifer Rowe

Theseus, the man of the people, is at war. The people are suffering in poverty. The poverty is turning the people towards violence. The violence has corrupted the city. The city is crumbling, thousands of jobs are gone – but none of this matters because it’s a royal’s birthday!
A concentrated, contemporary late-night Grecian tale of Phaedra’s doomed love for her stepson, Hippolytus.

Presenting the 24 Hour Production
Directed by Jennifer Rowe

The Quick and Dirty Art Project, in collaboration with 2012 Drammy-winner
Matthew B. Zrebski of Playwrights West,
will be presenting their first 24-Hour Production on Monday, September 3rd 2012
at the Coho Theater, 2257 NW Raleigh Street.

The performance will be a fundraiser for the coming year’s work.
In what the company hopes will be a first in an ongoing series of collaborations with
upcoming local playwrights, The Quick and Dirty Art Project will collaborate with local playwright Matthew Zrebski, a group of talented local actors, designers, and technicians to create a short, fully realized production of a
completely new work over a 24 – hour period.

Starting at 8pm, September 2nd and ending at 7:59 September 3rd, a Portland-grown world premier will be written, developed, designed and rehearsed.

The final work will then be performed at 8pm, September 3rd, and followed by a Labor Day party.
So stay for a hot dog.
