Portland World Theatre is proud to present the world premiere of

The Shadow Testament

by Susan Mach
Directed by Angie Hughes

The Shadow Testament is loosely based on incidents that took place around the turn of the century in Corvallis and Seattle. It’s the story of a young woman (Jane) who has to come to terms with a crime she committed in the name of love and God. Eleven actors explore the past during a night of visions, dreams, and conversations with haunting ghosts, all manifested by Jane, as she sits in her room in an asylum. She wonders how passion turned ugly, and where loved turned to hate. Explore the far-reaches of a “tainted,” “soiled” and “disturbed” young woman’s mind.
