Portland Center Stage's JAW playwriting fest kicks off in earnest tonight with Commission! Commission!, which gives wealthy theater boosters the chance to commission their very own play. An auction determines whose play will be written (minimum bid: $250) and then, while paying customers enjoy a leisurely dinner, playwrights frantically write, cast, and direct an original show, which is performed after dessert. (The performance starts at 9 pm and is free and open to the public, and proceeds from the auction benefit JAW.)
