Cast Favorites from NBC's GRIMM to Star in 

 

Three Days of Rain

 

Silas Weir Mitchell and Sasha Roiz will take the Stage at PCS!

We are delighted to announced an exciting change in the season line up for 2014-2015 at Portland Center Stage. The season will now end with Richard Greenberg's lauded play Three Days of Rain, and will star two of the most popular cast members on the NBC hit television series GRIMM: Silas Weir Mitchell (Monroe) and Sasha Roiz (Captain Renard).
 

"GRIMM is filmed in Portland, and has been a welcome addition to the city's creative landscape," said Artistic Director Chris Coleman. "Since they arrived in town, both Sasha and Silas have been visitors to Portland Center Stage, and so I've come to know them. We've been waiting for the right timing, and the right project, to work together. And the planets -- also known as GRIMM's shooting schedule and our season calendar -- finally aligned."

About the Show


“Greenberg has written a kind of generational mystery in which the past really is another country, one that the present, groping for insight into its own origins, can’t help misjudging.” 

-Los Angeles Times
 

Three New Yorkers grapple with the puzzles of family history and the nature of creativity in Greenberg's Pulitzer Prize-nominated play. A year after he disappeared on the day of his father's funeral, Walker Janeway returns to the city. He takes up temporary residence in the studio where thirty-five years earlier his father Ned and Ned's late architectural business partner, Theo, lived and designed the iconic house that would make them famous. Now Walker and his sister Nan meet in the long-abandoned space preparing to hear the reading of Ned’s will, joined by Theo’s son, Pip. But even as they think they have unraveled their generation’s beliefs about their parents, a newly discovered journal filled with enigmatic entries begins to open a window on two strikingly different times, and the surprising connections between them.

The unique structure of Three Days of Rain – Greenberg plays with time and perception by having the actors play their own parents in Act 2 – means that Silas Weir Mitchell will play both Walker and Ned, and Sasha Roiz will play Pip and Theo. The casting of Nan/Lina will be announced at a later date.
