      Hazardous Beauty by Bonnie Ratner

      Hazardous Beauty is a provocative, often very funny, guide to making friends with people who are different from us. Two women–one black, one white–attend a memoir writing class at a Portland college. They have come to write about their lives, not just talk about them, so they are charged with "coherence," with making sense of love, work, art and aging, and together to explore what all this means at the intersection of gender, race and class. During the 2016 Fertile Ground Festival, audiences called Hazardous Beauty "Wonderfully provocative, witty, complex and brilliant. It was awesome to see two strangers meet and peel through the world's stereotypes and misconceptions to reveal the hearts of two such richly talented, yet scarred individuals. Brava!" Hazardous Beauty has been revised and updated with new surprises for this fully produced world premiere. ----- Part of Fertile Ground: A City-wide Festival of New Works
