Page to Stage: Red Herring

Tuesday, March 06 - 12:00pm - 1:00pm
Location: Main Library
Audience: Adults

Portland Public Library continues the Page to Stage discussion series in partnership with Portland Stage on Tuesday, March 6th in the Rines Auditorium with a conversation about “Red Herring”. The play will be performed at Portland Stage Company from February 27th through March 25th.  Cast and/or crew members from the show will participate in the discussion and talk about themes of the play and the creative process the performance.

Maggie’s a tough, Boston cop, trying to get her finger on the one man who gave her the slip: a sly crime boss who worked his way into her heart. As she deals with murder, mystery, and intrigue in Boston Harbor, she also has to deal with Frank, an FBI gumshoe with a proposal more dangerous than commie spies, murderous mobs, and McCarthyism combined: marriage.

Page to Stage is an opportunity to engage in questions about the plays, playwrights, and ideas presented on Portland Stage Company’s Main Stage. The discussion is facilitated by Portland Stage artistic staff and free and open to the public.


About the Series » Page to Stage

Portland Public Library partners again this year with Portland Stage Co. to present Page to Stage discussions around the 2018-2019 season. These discussions, led by Portland Stage artistic staff, provide insight into the literary and social aspects of the play, as well as exploring the challenges of bringing a particular play to the stage. Participants can enter their name to win a pair of tickets to the upcoming production at the beginning of the discussion, and a winner will be picked at the end of the discussion. Page to Stage is held at the Portland Public Library at 12:00 noon on Tuesday two weeks before the show opens at Portland Stage. Copies of the play are available at the Portland Public Library’s reference desk for participants to read before the discussion if they would like to. Feel free to bring your lunch – coffee and tea are provided!
