    Who We Are

    Oregon Stage Works was established as a 501 (c) 3 non-profit performance group in October of 2002 in response to an outpouring of community support for the creation of a professional theatre company focusing on the actor and the text and the staging of developing and master American playwrights. Inspired by the diversity of American society, OSW is dedicated to enlightening artists and audiences alike with creative and challenging theatre works…simultaneously embracing a community of all ages and cultures with affordable professional theatre.

His T.V./Film credits include Portlandia (“We can pickle that”) featured roles in As the World Turns, One Life to Live, The Guiding Light, and Ryan’s Hope. He has taught acting at a number of universities and professional schools including Long Island University, The University of Rochester, and AMDA. He received his MFA in directing as a Donal Harrington Scholar from the University of Montana. Peter’s further studies included work with Joel Zwick, Stella Adler, Warren Robertson, Michal Moriarty, Herbert Berghoff and Mira Rostova. Before moving to the mountains of Southern Oregon he was represented by the Michael Harting Agency in N.Y.C. and The Irv Schecter Agency in Los Angeles. He served as Producing Artistic Director at Actors’ Theatre for five years and is the founding Producing Artistic Director of Oregon Stage Works and under that banner formed Ashland Children’s Theatre and The Playwrights Unit.

      “I have seen lots of excellent plays at OSW. I am sure I am just one of many who will say how much we have enjoyed your work…”

      “Maybe there was a better performance I've seen in the past but, if there was, I can't remember it.”

    • Bill Varble

      “ …With taut direction and a terrific cast delivering Mamet's zingy prosody, the effect is like a strong, double Irish coffee. This world makes us dizzy, but there's something bracing about it.”
