The Breath of Life

Portland Center Stage
128 NW Eleventh Avenue Portland

David Hare has been called "one of the great post-war British playwrights," and The Breath of Life supports that claim. This captivating drama crackles with dramatic tension, razor-sharp wit and biting humor. Frances, the dutiful wife, meets Madeleine, her husband's not-so-dutiful lover. The man they unknowingly shared has run off with another woman, leaving them alone to confront the past. The two romantic rivals refuse to be defined by the man who abandoned them, and together they learn to feel the breath of life again. Starring Portland favorites Sharonlee McLean (The Receptionist and many more at The Armory) and Gretchen Corbett (Nurse Ratched in One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest at The Armory).
