Thank YOU for contributing to a successful run of LEFT HOOK during the Fertile Ground Festival of new works. This staged reading, although not a full production, was highly polished, powerful and moving, especially because it featured such a strong and talented cast under the fine direction of Damaris Webb, once a boxer herself. The icing on the cake was a post-show panel discussion by a group of honored guests who had either been involved in the world of boxing or who played an important role in the community such as the founder of the Portland Black Panthers. Here is a photo of most of the cast of LEFT HOOK, which will see a full production at the Vanport Mosaic Festival in 2018.
