August 19th is a Great Night For “The Boycott”

Jump to Comments 

My high school partner-in-crime Kathy Blume is bringing her highly acclaimed play, The Boycott  to Portland, Oregon.

For free!

Tuesday, August 19th at 7 P.M.

at “The Little Church”

The Boycott tells the story of the First Lady of the US launching a nationwide sex strike to combat global warming, and has been performed everywhere from Anchorage to Oxford. 
It’s hard to find humor in global warming but Kathryn Blume manages to do it in “The Boycott.” She engages, in an entertaining way, that tough question of “how can what I do make a difference to a global problem?” And critically, she makes us come out of our denial and confront this planet’s climate crisis with a sense of optimism and hope. 
                 – Peter Lehner, Executive Director, Natural Resources Defense Council 
What Blume reveals is just how much creativity, humor, and pathos it will take to move us beyond the global warming message and toward embodying the artistic license needed to do something about it.

“This is smart, clever, funny, entertaining theatre that makes political activism appealingly cool while unabashedly striving to make it part of the everyday fabric of life again.” –

“The Boycott is a magical experience: at times hilarious, at times heart-wrenching, and at all points absolutely necessary.” – Charlotte Citizen

So if you like live theater and enjoy a free night out, come join us.
