After reading Peter Stark’s epic book about Astoria, Portland Center Stage artistic director, Chris Coleman, decided to adapt it into a play. We’ll follow the early stages of the production, from meeting with Peter Stark to taking his design team on a tour of Astoria, and see the first workshop of his script in progress. We leave them with just six months before the play opens.
