The Time Between (2001-2002)
Written by Sharon Whitney, Ellen West, Cindy McGean, Vicente Guzman-Orozco and Dmae Roberts
Directed by Carmela Lanza-Weil
Lanza-Weil gathered some of the best talent in Portland to collaborate on this original collage play with Playwrights Sharon Whitney, Ellen West, Cindy McGean, Vicente Guzman-Orozco and Dmae Roberts. This team of commissioned writers created a play based on material gathered from a series of workshops at the Dougy Center and Grief Watch about the theme “What Hurts, What Helps” in overcoming loss and grief.
As part of MediaRites’ Grief Project, more than 50 youth, adults and families met during the summer to share stories and personal writing about what helped them deal with loss in their lives. The stories reveal the strength and depth of the human spirit to face enormous challenges through honesty, dignity, tears and laughter.
