In its second year, OSF Presents is a pilot program designed to give Oregon Shakespeare Festival artists (who have worked with OSF in some capacity during the past two seasons) the arena to share their art with the public.  These shows, typically developed outside of the Festival, may feature OSF company members, guest artists, directors, designers, or Green Show artists presenting their one person shows or more adult material.  The bulk of the proceeds go to the Artist after OSF expenses.
