What is the Spring Revels?
Spring Revels is our newest program, launched in 2019 and then put on hold due to the COVID pandemic, until Spring of 2022. Each production is the result of a collaboration between the Portland Revels community and local playwrights, artists, directors and designers, to create something brand new by, about, and for different communities throughout the Portland area.
Spring Revels productions spend one weekend in a traditional theatre space, then tour to community locations throughout the Metro area and beyond.

How does she honor the stories of this place?
