    A benefit for Advance Gender Equity (AGE) in the Arts
    Sponsored by Jayne & Steven Lovell

    The life of a young woman is forever changed on a trip to India where she unearths family secrets, encounters a prophet, and ultimately discovers her voice within a culture of silence. The familiar and the foreign swap roles in this dark comedy about culture, identity, spirituality, and sexuality.

  • Oregon Contemporary Theatre's annual benefit, Experience OCT, supports OCT's professional theatre productions and exceptional, life-long education programming. The evening's festivities include local food and drinks, a silent auction, a wine wall, and performances by incredible local talents!

  • Ever wonder how a designer created an effect? What helped an actor to make a moment real? What a director thinks a play is all about? Now is your chance to ask! Following each Sunday matinee performance of the regular season, OCT hosts a post-show discussion with several members of the cast and production team. 

  • Oregon Contemporary Theatre is a regular co-producer of the popular NW10 Festival of Ten-minute Plays, an annual festival taking place in the late spring of each year. Find out more about this year's festival, past festivals, and how you can submit your script for NW10!
