Steve Patterson’s Rimbaud’s Daughter in Louisiana (or The Drunken Pirogue) is the winner of the Portland Civic Theatre Guild’s New Play Award. The story takes place in the 1890s when a free-spirited French woman, in the company of a down-to-earth Cajun woman, sets off on a picaresque quest through Louisiana in search of the man she suspects is her father: the notorious symbolist poet Arthur Rimbaud. This year the Guild expands the New Play program by offering two performances at two venues. The first is Monday night, Jan 25, at Cerimon House in NE Portland. Wine and Beer will be available at this performance. On Tuesday morning, Jan 26, we return to our home at The Old Church. The performance at the Old Church starts at 10am with complimentary coffee and treats followed by the reading at 10:30am.
