Earlier this year, we told you all about Fall of the House; an improvised stage sitcom about a group of twenty-somethings living here in Portland. The series, having just concluded their fifth season, consistently gets rave reviews and continues to impress audiences with its original writing, quick witted actors and obvious Portland connections. The young theater company that writes and produces Fall of the House is Action/Adventure Theatre and they have a new project which we at PDX Pipeline are thrilled to be a part of. They call it: Fothing.
It is a fully scripted web series surrounding theÃƒâ€š lives of the Fall of the House writers. Each Thursday, a new episode of Fothing will be available on the show's website and each Tuesday, a new interview with cast members, writers and creators will be available right here on Pipeline.
Thursday, the series premiere of Fothing will be available at www.fothingtv.com. It's plot is described as the following:
When the one member financially backing the project has her trust fund fall through, they all find themselves with a whole lot of attention and no way to produce their epic next season. As the company members war over whether or not to accept a proposed corporate sponsorship each member takes a wildly different approach to raising funds, from printing merchandise in a Palestinian sweatshop to botched attempts at selling drugs, all amidst a battle with their rival theater company.
This week, I met with the delightful Tamara Carroll, one of the original Fall of the House creators and Directors who is now experiencing life as an actress … playing herself.
If you don't make it to the premiere party – you can catch the episode online starting Thursday morning. If you head there right now you can see trailers for the show and find information about the cast!
