MVT presents is an evening of one-acts. In Hattie’s Vote, by local playwright Dorothy Velasco, we meet Hattie Redmond, a Black woman who was instrumental in the fight for Oregon women’s suffrage. Nat Turner’s Last Struggle: Finding His Way Home by P.A. Wray, explores the final hour of the life of Nat Turner, an enslaved preacher who led one of the bloodiest slave rebellions in the American South, as he searches for meaning on the day of his execution.
MVT is proud to produce a weekend with illioo Native Theatre as we commemorate the 20th anniversary of the Klamath River fish kill with a reading of the play Salmon is Everything by Theresa May in collaboration with the Klamath Theatre Project.
The play follows the story of three families on the Klamath River during the drought, salmon crisis, and devastating fish kill of 2002. Its message about the kinship among salmon, people and the land is as relevant today – for all great rivers in the Pacific Northwest — as it was 20 years ago.
