WHAT: Our Shoes Are Red/The Performance Lab and TASO (Theater Arts Student Organization) Productions, in association with the Interstate Firehouse Cultural Center, the Regional Arts and Culture Council, and Portland State University, present the Northwest premiere of Howard Barker's award-winning, provocative play Ursula, chosen to open the Interstate Firehouse Cultural Center's 2009/2010 season with a four-week run.

This production is part of The International Barker Festival, 21 for 21 (www.21421.co.uk). Graphic language and nudity, recommended for ages 16 and up.
WHEN: September 11 to October 3, Thursday-Saturday at 8 p.m., Sunday at 2 p.m.
