Northbound, Fiberglass Quilt is a reading of an early-development one-act play that confronts grief and uncertainty through the lens of a long-haul “thru-hike” from California to Canada.

Dan and Lemon-Lime brought unintended baggage on the PCT. They must confront what brought them to – and keeps them on – the trail, all while the ghosts of their secrets play with matches in their wake.

Part of the Portable Performance Festival (Sept. 8-24) — A festival of solo storytelling and minimalist performance, with 24 different shows spread over 33 performances in 2.5 weeks, incorporating over 100 artists. The festival seeks to recommit to 18th & U’s original spirit and vision, inviting a new batch of creators to share their fresh “portable” work with new and returning audiences.
