Ashland is a company town, as in theater company. The Oregon Shakespeare Festival stages about 11 different shows a year and brings in tourists from the around the world.
So the announcement of next year’s plays is kind of a big deal around here. It’s a show onto itself.
If you want to see what’s coming a year from now, watch the artistic director Bill Rauch announce the titles:
I’m really excited about The Tempest.
Speaking of drama, we’re now seeking full-length plays ourselves here at Ashland Creek Press — not to produce but to publish as books. (Reading plays, we think, can be as amazing as seeing them performed on stage.) We are looking for plays that explore the human/animal relationship, particularly in regard to animal protection.
