Welcome to the OSF Blog!

As we move into our 2021 season, we’re launching this blog as a space to share the stories, voices, and perspectives that make OSF what it is.

2020 was an incredibly difficult year for OSF, our local Rogue Valley community, our nation, and our world. We acknowledge the loss, pain, and fear that so many have experienced and continue to experience. We hold this with care as we move forward into our 2021 season at OSF with a renewed commitment to engage, heal, and inspire through compelling and necessary storytelling.

The OSF Blog is your space to hear from the artists who bring stories to life on stage and screen, help us understand the contours of our humanity, and push us to imagine new worlds and future possibilities. Immerse yourself in the different perspectives that surround our work at OSF, discover new modes of storytelling across media, and dive deep into ongoing conversations at the intersection of art, justice, and community in the theatre field and our culture at large.

Welcome to the OSF Blog! We’re glad you’re here.

ASH LAND offers a portrait of a Black woman who has turned her back on herself, afflicted by a quiet, insidious malaise. When an enigmatic spirit finally catches up to her, she cultivates an understanding of true restoration and rebirth that reignites her love of Ashland. Directed by Shariffa Ali (The Copper Children, 2020), ASH LAND is the first-ever independent motion picture production associated with OSF.
