50 words: THE HUNTSMEN by Quincy Long at Portland Playhouse

The kind of exploratory, non-traditional work at which Portland Playhouse excels and in which they can lead. Dean Linnard morbidly hypnotic as the altered teen with a blade. Relief and genuine excitement at seeing non-kitchen sink naturalism partially offset by some jump cuts that do not always maintain the focus.

“…Quincy Long’s delightfully twisted play…delivers the most surprising, strange and satisfying theater of the season so far.” OregonLive
