Stage and Studio on 10/25/11
Portland writer Sandra de Helen's play Blue Roses is being featured in a reading at the Dramatists Guild of America Friday Night Footlights program in October. Blue Roses tells the story of an imagined meeting of Tennessee William's sister and Rosemary Kennedy at a mental instititution in Missouri. Blue Roses was previously presented in the PlayLab at the Great Plains Theatre Conference and in a Portland reading directed by Matt Zrebski.
In the second half of the show, Dmae talks with Kathy Kendrix, organizer of Worship in Pink, a community celebration that takes place on Sunday, October 30, 2- 6 p.m. in the Legacy Emanuel Medical Center Atrium.
The event honors breast cancer survivors with exhibitors, booths, speakers, a reading of The Breast Cancer Monologues by Dmae Roberts and a special performance by Sisters in Survival, a chorus of breast cancer survivors led by Julianne R. Johnson. For more information about Worship in Pink see the website.
