The Fire Ten Minute Play Festival

For 2019, our second theme is "Fire". The Portland 10MPF is an event MWHAO produces three times a year featuring nine original, new plays written, directed and performed by Portland artists. Each play is ten minutes or less and all of the plays are performed every performance night two weekends in a row. It's a very fun, well attended event and we believe there is nothing else like it in the city. We are theater for everybody: only charging 5 bucks a ticket and we have an open-door policy where anyone can submit a play or try out to be involved. these are your stories, Portland!


Hope Cry Laugh Die

Hope Cry Laugh Die grabs your heart and imagination from the get go. Stand-up comedy, motivational speaking, and personal anecdotes come together to form a fast paced, one of a kind experience full of surprises. It's simultaneously thought provoking and entertaining from start to finish.

Playwright/director/actor Justin Gauthier is publishing a short story collection and Hope Cry Laugh Die will be a one night only, one man performance celebrating the book's release!
