Show Notes

christopher oscar peña

We kick off our 3-part series orbiting How to Make an American Son with playwright christopher oscar peña. In April, peña came to Portland to workshop his newest play, Our Orange Sky. Prior to his visit, Director of Community Engagement Tamara Carroll talked to him about what peña refers to as the "alternate metaverse version of my plays, where they are a fictitious but also factual take on me and my family." Peña discusses the real life story that inspired American Son, the variables of power and privilege, and why he calls the play "a love letter to my father." 

How to Make An American Son runs June 8-25, 2023 at Imago Theatre.
