Nothing is what it seems when two estranged sisters—one an LA screenwriter and the other a clinical psychologist— are forced to come to terms with their sibling rivalry, a horrific past, and the love they share over a deranged actor.  Set in present-day Los Angeles, FADE IN: stars local actors Skye Stafford (Venus in Fur), Catherine Christie (5 Lesbians Eating a Quiche) and Robert Marquez (The Pillowman).  This original, spellbinding work according to its star, Skye Stafford is “reminiscent of a Twilight Zone episode with the edginess of a Tarantino film.”


About the Playwright: Patricia West- Del Ruth has been promoting the region for the last decade, serving the state in different capacities. As Director of Cinema Arts Education for Film Oregon Alliance, she brought industry professionals to the region conducting workshops, seminars, and screenings. Also, she served as a representative for the region to help promote tax incentives for the state through Oregon Media Production Association and has taught acting for film and television. She has also been involved with Bendfilm as a former board member and has supported both the Future Filmmakers Program and Independent Women for Independent Film. When she is not writing, she helps in casting locally produced films and is an actor as well. West-Del Ruth’s intentions are to transcend FADE IN: the play, into an independent film to be shot both here in Bend and in Portland.
