Wednesdays through Saturdays at 7:30pm, Sundays at 2:00pm
- CoHo Theater -
2257 NW Raleigh St, Portland, OR 97210

Runtime: 1 hour and 40 minutes, no intermission.

Abby and Zack are newlyweds subletting an apartment in the Belleville area of Paris. She’s a yoga instructor and he’s a physician with Doctor Without Borders. Their life is idyllic, if not especially noteworthy. That is until Abby walks in on Zack with his pants literally around his ankles.

As she starts pulling at little threads having to do with how Zack spends his day, BELLEVILLE builds toward a climax that asks if we can ever truly know another person. This sexy, funny, scary, and tense pseudo-thriller from one of America’s hottest new playwrights will unnerve as quickly as it entertains.

Watching the two together feels uncomfortably familiar, a sensation heightened by black box-style intimacy ... read moreKaitie Todd, Willamette Week
Lingafelter and Lamb... give lively, liquid performances - it's a matchup that should have local theater fans drooling - and Philip Cuomo directs them with a quick sure rhythm, neatly gliding through the play's sharp corners ... read moreBob Hicks, Oregon ArtsWatch
There are scenes in this production that feel so natural and real that they almost seem improvised, but before you know it, that minor accident five minutes ago is a major plot point ... read moreThomas Ross, Portland Mercury
