Diverse Play on Gun Violence

What do we do when someone is lost violently and unexpectedly? In a world premiere play coming to the Shoebox Theater in southeast Portland, a cast of six diverse women bring the story of Brandon, a young man who is always in and out of trouble, until he is shot in the back by a member of his own community.

“A Dark Sky Full of Stars” is world premiere play by Don Zolidis and directed by Portland’s Jocelyn Seid and is being brought to the stage by Theatre Vertigo, a local theater group, Thursday, April 11 through May 12 at Shoebox Theater, 2110 S.E. 10th Ave.

Seid is returning to Theatre Vertigo after performing in “A Maze” in their 2016-17 season.
