ABOUT THE PLAYWRIGHT
Phyllis Yes is an Oregon-based artist and playwright whose artistic media ranges from works on painted canvas to furniture, clothing, and jewelry, and notably, a silver 1967 Porsche 911-S, “Por She”—whose body was painstakingly painted in highly tactile pink and flesh-toned lace motif — exhibited at the Bernice Steinbaum Gallery in New York in the early 80’s and driven across the United States as a traveling exhibition. Her visual art has appeared in more than 140 exhibitions.
Good Morning Miss America is her first play. It was a semi-finalist at Artists Repertory Theatre’s Table/Room/Stage competition in 2016. Yes is a member of PDX Playwrights, and a former theater, art and music critic for U.S. West website. She lives and works in Portland.
