2013-2014 Season Six
DETROIT by Lisa D’Amour
Directed by Brian Weaver
October 2 – November 3, 2013
A “sharp X-ray of the embattled Ameri-can psyche…a dark comedy as rich and addictively satisfying as a five-layer dip served up with a brimming bowl of tortilla chips.” -The New York Times
THE OTHER PLACE by Sharr White
November 20 – December 8, 2013
Gretchen Corbett stars in Sharr White’s riveting psycho-logical drama that critics have hailed as “piercing and tonally on-target” (New York Magazine) “curvy and com-pelling” (NY Daily News), and a “taut, incisive puzzle play” (Backstage).
JITNEY by August Wilson
January 15 – February 2, 2014
Don’t miss Portland Playhouse’s signature approach to Wilson, of which Portland Monthly wrote about this season’s King Hedley II: “if you like your drama strong and your performances intense, it’s unlikely that you’ll see a production this gripping… anytime soon.”
THE LIGHT IN THE PIAZZA Book by Craig Lucas
Music & Lyrics by Adam Guettel

The King Neighborhood Association is invited to see Clybourne Park! A white community in 1950s Chicago splinters over the black family about to move in. Fast forward to our present day and the same house represents very different demographics, and neighborhood values and tensions. Decades apart, hilarious and horrifying neighbors pitch a battle over territory and legacy that forces us to consider how far our ideas about race have evolved—or not. When our houses become our homes, and our neighborhoods become our identities, what will we do to protect them? And from what? Clybourne Park won the 2012 Tony Award, the 2011 Pulitzer Prize and the 2011 Olivier Award for Best New Play. On the Main Stage at Portland Center Stage from April 6–May 5.
King neighbors get a $10 discount on tickets! See the attached flyer below for details:

The following is a letter submitted to the Oregon Liquor Control Commission at yesterday’s hearing on the 7-Eleven license application. The license was granted with no restrictions but KNA is committed to continuing negotiations with 7-Eleven to preserve neighborhood livability through a good neighbor agreement.

RE: 7-11 5150 NE MLK Blvd, Portland – Liquor License Request for Restriction
The King Neighborhood Association (KNA) has previously submitted opposition to an unrestricted OLCC license being issues to the 7-11 now located at 5150 NE MLK Blvd, Portland. At that time the King Neighborhood Association requested that the license be restricted based on size and alcohol content of beverages, as well as the time of sale be restricted to no later than 1:00 am.
On February 7th, Ryan Kroll, on behalf of 7-11 engaged with the King Neighborhood Association and has entered into negotiations to find suitable accommodations for the concerns of the KNA. We believe that 7-11 is acting in good faith as is the KNA and we would like to formally request an extension of one month on your deliberation of this matter. While we have made excellent progress on a draft agreement, there are items that warrant further discussion.
The King Neighborhood has in the past and does currently struggle with street drinking amongst other public safety concerns. Great strides have been made over the past 10 years within the neighborhood to make significant improvements, but there is much work yet to be done. As new businesses move into our neighborhood it is incumbent both on those businesses and the neighbors to work together to ensure that the positive momentum that has carried us this far continues.
We urge you to grant this request and allow us the opportunity to work with our new neighbor to continue to make positive change in the King Neighborhood a reality.
Co-Chair KNA on behalf of the King Neighborhood Association
