YOU DON'T KNOW ME
Apprentice Company Solo Shows
Featuring the Portland Playhouse Season 12 Apprentice Company
June 8 & 9, 2020
It has been quite a year for our Season 12 Apprentice Company. Even as our season was cut short and our face-ro-face time with the full company was limited due to COVID-19 physical distancing restrictions, the Apprentice Company created and presented You Don’t Know Me, a collection of solo works. Due to physical distancing requirements, the solo shows were performed to a closed house.
YOU CAN NOW VIEW FIVE OF THE SOLO PERFORMANCES BY CLICKING THE BUTTONS BELOW EACH DESCRIPTION.
Because the Apprentice Company was not able to raise funds for themselves through tickets sales of these shows this year, we ask you consider making a donation which will go directly to the Season 12 Apprentice Company members by clicking on the link below.
YOU DON'T KNOW ME
I WANT TO BE YOU: A STUDY IN OBSESSION
I’M (NOT) IN LOVE WITH YOU
The ancient Greeks had 8 different words to describe love. This solo show explores all of them, and a few extras! From poetry to songs to riddles, Taylor invites you to engage with the places you find love in your life, and on your body as she shares her experiences with love, heartbreak, and the person she hopes to become.
RILEY’S RADICAL RADIANT IRREVERENT RADIO
Riley’s Radical Radiant Irreverent Radio Show blends facts with feelings, songs with soliloquies, moods with motion, and, of course, the profound with profanities.
Can one solo show really do all that? Tune in and find out.
ASH HEFFERNAN DIDN’T WRITE A SOLO SHOW
LAUGHING WITH LAUREN
In the midst of the night, a guy was just playing video games when he finds out he’s gonna die in the morning! Now it’s up to an alien bean bag chair with an eye condition to help him in his final moments to find peace in his short but funny life.
IT’S ME, YOU!
In It’s Me, You! we dive into my mind and examine the memories of some of the toughest times of my life. Voice, my inner thought, takes me on a rough journey down memory lane to relive these memories. Already confronting some embarrassing and tough past issues, we both struggle to find balance and a fondness of each other throughout the journey but become close and agree that we both are amazing and that self love and acceptance is so important for growth.
I can’t change my past and I wouldn’t change it because my past is what led me to become the person I am today. Although I can’t change the past, I can change my perspective on how I look at the events of my past; always able to learn something new. This paradigm shift comes from years of reflection, new experiences, and meeting new people. As we grow and learn new things each day, meet new people, our outlook changes either slightly or drastically but nevertheless, it changes in some way. I believe that those changes allow us to look at our past differently throughout our lives, learning something new every time we reflect.
