Newly running play addresses battle for survival

August 30, 2013 by  

In ‘Cinnamon and Cigarettes’, presented by Salt and Sage Productions, writer and performing artist Jenny Newbry is taking us on a one-hour journey through the life of someone who has battled addiction, and is searching for deep meaning. Brochure printing and poster printing by local print companies might have been used to promote this solo piece to people in this city and the outlying regions.

The show is performed in collaboration with Asae Dean and Cassie Greer as part of a national tour and tells the story of Jenny and Jeremy, a pair that grew up in Denver, Colorado’s suburbs. This pair was great at dancing in the rain and pretending, although Jeremy’s life takes a drastic change and he begins to battle the demons that haunt him, and starts to search his life for a deeper meaning, as well as a connection to other people who are affected with the same struggle he is.

Tickets for this production are $10 per person, and it will be running every day this weekend from 8:00 pm, as well as from Thursday, September 5th to Saturday, September 7 at the same time. The production explores the topics of nurturing children, unanswered questions, love, and friendship. A special September 7 matinee performance will be held at 3:00 pm.

The place to be to see it is the Backdoor Theatre located at 4319 SE Hawthorne Blvd. in Portland, Oregon. To purchase tickets or learn more about the production, please visit Salt and Sage Production’s website or call theater’s box office.
