In recent days, the fires ravaging the West Coast have devastated the Oregon Shakespeare Festival community. After consultation with our friends and partners there, we have jointly decided to postpone the online streaming of "The Carolyn Bryant Project". We will present this important work soon, and look forward to announcing new dates in the near future. In the meantime, we ask that you keep our OSF friends in your thoughts.
