Starting Jan. 25, PassinArt will present “Hazardous Beauty,” a provocative, often very funny, guide to making friends with people who are different from us.
Two women -- one Black, one White -- attend a memoir writing class at a Portland college. They are charged with making sense of love, work, art and aging, and together to explore what all this means at the intersection of gender, race and class. The play, written by Portland playwright Bonnie Ratner, was part of the 2016 Fertile Ground Festival and has been revised and updated with new surprises for this fully produced world premiere.
The play will be produced at 7:30 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays from Jan. 25 through Feb. 17. There will also be matinee showings at 3 p.m. Sundays. It will be staged at Interstate Firehouse Cultural Center (IFCC)m 340 N Interstate Ave.
