Rogue Theater Company Artistic Director Jessica Sage is in rehearsal for the company’s next production: Marsha Norman’s “’Night Mother.” The Pulitzer-prize winning play, directed by Caroline Shaffer, opens in Oregon Shakespeare Festival’s Black Swan Theater Nov. 1. Sage plays Mama, and Andrea Hochkeppel plays her daughter, Jessie. We all met one morning at the Rogue Valley Roasting Company.
EH: What attracts you to this play?
JS: There are so few plays for women by women that are this magnificent.
CS: The play is fundamentally about a relationship between a mother and a daughter, and it’s a complicated relationship.
