Welcome to the new Compass Works website. Formerly known as Compass Repertory Theatre, Compass Works has made some significant changes in the organization. You can read more about it here.
We are beginning our next project in January. We will interview eighty or more people living homeless in Portland (and the surrounding area) and through a process of listening, writing, and workshops, create a play from those stories. Not simply the stories of homelessness, but the stories of mothers, fathers, children, or lives lived and choices made. We may not agree with those choices, but that does not change the value of the story, or of the life lived.
If you are interested in offering what you do well to help us tell these stories, please contact us.
