What Critics are Saying:

"One of Portland Center Stage's favorite playwrights delivers a small, surprising, perspective-shifting play. This is a guy you know – maybe even a friend. And his worries of not being able to find anyone to love are real and raw. After seeing A Life and getting a glimpse of Nate’s life, you might see the world a little differently, or have a newfound appreciation for your own life." - Oregon ArtsWatch

"Exquisite ... throws a jaw-dropping curveball." - Time Out New York

"The existential power of the play comes from its genre splicing and narrative shocks, what makes it specific and meaningful is its undiminished humanity." - Vulture  

"Provocative. It should not be missed." - The Wrap

What Audiences are Saying:

"The lead actor was fabulous." 

"I felt like a friend. I wanted to sit on the couch next to him. He was phenomenal."

"Very intense." 

"Shout out to the set design. Amazing!"

"Thought provoking."

"I loved the story line."
