Easter Bunny, Bad Indians, Impertinent Bubblebaths exhort you to Love!

Portuguese Artists Colony had an Identity Crisis.

In a single evening: we lived in God time, loved those who piss on our doorstep, sued our teachers for mercy, went on an Indian raid, threatened the Easter Bunny, and stood by each other as we fell in love.

Pocket Full of Rye got up inside us and moved us to stamp our feet and clap our hands. Damion Searls, Benjamin Wachs, Leslie Ingham and Caitlin Myer took us out of ourselves and into places we never imagined. And Cary Tennis played his guitar while we sang about the Big Wheel we all ride.

We all ride the big wheel, man. And it will turn around to bring us back for another performance on Sunday, May 23.

We're shining it up, just for you.

Indentity Crisis

Who do you think you are, anyway?

Portuguese Artists Colony is here to tell you you're wrong.

You're not the good little boy the teacher calls on first. You're not the saintly wife or the self-sacrificing mother.

You're not the class wit. You're not America's sweetheart.

You're confused. But you're not alone. Find the answers you're looking for when Portuguese Artists Colony presents: Identity Crisis.

On Sunday, April 25, your true face will be revealed. Come as you are to Fivepoints Arthouse at 5 p.m. for an evening of words and music that are like looking in the mirror.

Featuring fiction by:
