Come and enjoy one of Shakespeare's most beloved comedies, OPS Style! As always, all of our shows are free :) About the Company: Original Practice Shakespeare Festival is dedicated to bringing a new style of Shakespearean performance to the Portland area by reviving the old. When Shakespeare originally penned and performed his plays, theatrical practices were very different than modern audiences are accustomed to. First Folio editions of Shakespeare's plays include all the cues an actor needs to perform his or her role without rehearsal. This allows the truest reaction to the story as it progresses. OPS Fest performs using the same techniques as they did in Shakespeare's own time, which means limited rehearsal; an onstage prompter; fast paced, energetic acting; and lots of audience interaction. This lends a much more immediate, organic and improvisational feel to the performances. Come prepared to cheer, boo, and generally reply (as a group) to what you're seeing onstage - the OPS actors thrive on it! Forget whatever audience rules you've learned. That mythical "fourth wall" you've heard of doesn't exist in an OPS production.

Portland mom Maggie celebrates her 50th birthday, enjoying the privileges of middle class. While volunteering with her teenaged daughter she is introduced to the world of homelessness. Through a series of uninvited interactions with the homeless, Maggie feels the call to action and decides to go on a protest fast to bring attention to the issue. Her life intersects with Alysha, a teen mom, whose daughter was taken away from her by the state because they are living on the streets. As Maggie continues on her journey the lives of many are deeply affected. REAL DOCUMENTARY INTERVIEWS with PDX HOMELESS are woven with the narrative threads of Maggie's protest fast, her family's attempts to understand her, Alysha's growth, and the bill '4 Walls and A Roof'; and all are brought together in a moving conclusion. Homeskillet asks the question, What if you had to do something no one understood?' Produced and directed by local filmmaker Phiamma Elias. This screening is a benefit for the Oregon Food Bank. http://www.homeskilletmovie.com/

The 2014 Think & Drink series, Private, explores the topics of government surveillance, corporate collection of personal information, and government regulation of family life. The series continues Thursday, May 8, with lawyer, author, and radio host Heidi Boghosian at 6:30 p.m. at the Mission Theater, 1624 NW Glisan St., Portland. A $10 donation is suggested for admission. Minors welcome when accompanied by an adult. Heidi Boghosian is the executive director of the National Lawyers Guild, a progressive bar association established in 1937, and cohost of the weekly civil liberties radio program Law and Disorder, which airs on 90 radio stations throughout the country, including KBOO in Portland. She is the author of Spying on Democracy: Government Surveillance, Corporate Power, and Public Resistance (City Light Publishers, 2013). Boghosian will discuss the legal and societal effects of far-reaching surveillance by both governments and corporations in conversation with Adam Davis, executive director of Oregon Humanities. The revelations of widespread digital surveillance by the National Security Administration and other global intelligence agencies may represent the greatest instance of government interception of private communications in history, but it may be rivaled by the ever-growing collection of personal information by private corporations. The happy-hour series, which sparks provocative conversations about big ideas, is sponsored by Oregon Humanities with media support from Oregon Public Broadcasting and Willamette Week. Oregon Humanities connects Oregonians to ideas that change lives and transform communities. More information about our programs and publications—which include the Conversation Project, Think & Drink, Humanity in Perspective, Idea Lab Summer Institute, Public Program Grants, and Oregon Humanities magazine—can be found at oregonhumanities.org.
