CRT’s Sundays at Three series begins March 16

Clackamas Repertory Theatre’s staged play-reading series will open at 3 p.m. March 16 with “Falling,” written by Deana Jent and directed by Jayne Stevens.

“Falling” explores what it is like to live each day with a family touched by the challenges of autism. Their carefully calibrated routines are disrupted when a relative comes to visit and each family member struggles to live in this increasingly disturbing, occasionally violent situation. Jent, who has an autistic child, challenges the audience to experience the difficulties of loving and raising a child whose behavior and increasing aggression is proving to be a danger to those around him.

“One Slight Hitch” by Lewis Black will be presented April 13, and “Don’t Go Gentle” will be presented May 4.

Tickets are $10 each or all three staged readings for $25. The tickets are available online at clackamasrep.org or at the door. CRT’s productions take place in the Niemeyer Center on the Clackamas Community College campus in Oregon City.
