Quilters: Read the reviews
"The words 'depth' and 'soul' do much to describe the allure of this production, an at-times astonishingly complex story of relationships, hardships and joys, love and loss that was handled with much grace and elegance by a diverse yet cohesive Cottage Theatre cast." Cottage Grove Sentinel review

The cast of Quilters (from L to R): Madeleine Sisson, Annie Read Pusey, Amber Brower, Eliza Roaring Springs, Rosalia D'Amato, Donia Hovet, Siv Serene, Stefhani Anderson, Nancy Anderson
"This is a fun show, with no plot, no men, no conflict and no denouement; but with laughs and tears, with interesting and arresting moments wrapped up in the music and the lives of a century ago. Worthwhile." Eugene Register-Guard review
Quilters continues for two more weekends
Quilters opened last weekend to an enthusiastic response from both our audiences and reviewers. (And the stunning quilt display in our lobby was a big hit as well!) If you haven't already seen this show, you have just two more weekends to fit it into your schedule. Do join us!
"The women take you into the blunt reality of their hardships and how quilts played a necessary role in overcoming the harshest of obstacles. Whether women were being forced into oppressive roles, facing losses of loved ones and children or standing in the face of devastating natural disaster, the quilts were always there." Eugene Weekly review
About Quilters: Based on true narratives of pioneer women, Quilters dramatizes the strenuous realities of 1800s frontier life. Prairie fires, twisters, starvation, and death are interspersed with lively, and often humorous, accounts of cabin construction, courtship, and childhood pranks. The patterns of life ─ the dark times contrasted with the light ─ are reflected in the women’s quilts, as are the connection, strength, and creativity they shared. Just as singing and dancing have helped folks survive and celebrate their lives, so too music and dance enliven this show. The message is universal and timeless: human survival depends upon our ability to embrace both laughter and tears. This uplifting and moving saga promises to warm your heart and stir your soul.
