In the West Coast premiere of this stunning new comedy by Craig Wright (writer on HBO’s Six Feet Under), Recent Tragic Events places the enormity of world tragedy in context – a dazzling, delirious context of uncanny blind dates, drinking games, and Joyce Carol Oates. Craig Wright frames 9/11 in a splendidly cracked rear view mirror, becoming a catalyst for examination of who or what is running our lives.

Do we really have a choice, or are we mere puppets espousing freedom?

Risky...I look forward to seeing what they will do in the future.The Oregonian
This is what professional theater looks like, and if you go to the theater in Portland only occasionally...make this one of the occasions. Recent Tragic Events is an event.Willamette Week
