How to End Poverty in 90 Minutes

This month, Portland Playhouse presents Sojourn Theatre’s How to End Poverty in 90 Minutes (With 99 People You May or May Not Know).

How to End Poverty is a provocative and interactive play that uses the arts to ask hard questions about a timely subject: the growing inequality in our country.

Written by Michael Rohd and Sojourn Theatre, the play encourages audience involvement as it explores ways to attack poverty. At the end of each performance, the audience will be asked to decide the “best” way to combat poverty. Based on the result, a local non-profit will receive $1,000!

Nick is proud to support the play, and to participate in the discussion with the audience on Friday, February 13.

Portland playhouse is local non-profit arts organization dedicated to providing diverse audiences with delightful, interactive performances that celebrate the complexity of life.

How to End Poverty runs from February 4 – 22 at Portland Playhouse. Check out Portland Playhouse’s website for more information and to purchase tickets.
