Described by one critic as "a culmination of the last four centuries of theater," The Evildoers runs the gamut of theatrical forms from Jacobean tragedy to drawing-room comedy. Not for the faint of heart, Adjmi's Carol and Jerry and Martin and Judy make Albee's George and Martha look like Sunday School teachers. Be forewarned: the only thing nastier than their tart tongues and their violent actions is their politics.

DAVID ADJMI’s plays include Strange Attractors, The Evildoers, Elective Affinities, Marie Antoinette and Caligula. David’s work has been developed and produced at the Sundance Theatre Lab, Manhattan Theatre Club, NYTW, Lincoln Center and Portland Center Stage’s JAW Festival, among others. He is the recipient of numerous awards and fellowships including a McKnight Fellowship, the Marian Seldes-Garson Kanin Award, a Jerome Fellowship, a Helen Merrill Award, an Ovid Grant for New Writing, a Lecomte du Nouy Award, a Cherry Lane Theatre Fellowship, as well as multiple fellowships from The MacDowell Colony and Ucross Foundation.

Today was the first rehearsal for the World Premiere of "Sometimes A Great Notion" adapted & directed by Aaron Posner at Portland Center Stage. It was a truly inspiring first read through. This script came to us a couple of years ago and I first encountered it at our first workshop reading. I immediately fell in love with Kesey's characters and felt a sense of new found pride for Oregon. This is a great work of fiction and Posner has perfectly captured Kesey's world in this adaptation. I am pleased to have been a part of this process and am so glad that the work will have its premiere at our theater in its home state. This script reminded me today why I love love LOVE theater and I highly recommend coming to see the show. It opens April 4th on the Main Stage. Click Here to find out more.
