(Dude) True Story is a wild and raucous collection of one-acts by Oregon writer Jimmy Dees.

Tenure or Dust

Will losing a poet cost our hero his last shot at tenure? Roger Weaver and his trusted colleague, Mary Jane Loso, come to Casey's Bar in search of the missing Bulgarian. They’ve already been to the Buffet and the District. Where else would a poet be? Roger has never lost a poet before. Did a power nap and an extra hot nonfat Chai Latte cost him his last chance at a mortgage in the Sam Hughes area?

Hungry Hills Estates

Can two down-on-their-luck real estate salesmen catch a break? Or does a young girl's advisor make sure Grammie's money is well spent? Featuring the French actress Cynchie, this true tale explores the seamy side of real estate. Will love win out over greed? And what is it with lawyers?


The Tweed family gathers for a holiday meal. And they've brought friends. And baggage. Lots and lots and lots of baggage. Can this bickering family of self-help experts help themselves? Or will the meal go sour like bad wine. This tale explores the underbelly of wine-tasting, Buddhist monks, personalized license plates, and why Costco is constantly shifting their stuff from one aisle to another. Well, maybe not Costco; that question would take a whole play. Just about the same time it takes to find the dog food every month.

This production was directed by Susan Arnold and features Hal Melfi, Jim Ambrosek, Renata Rauschen, Robin Carson, Matt Brown and Meagan Jones.

Coming in August, Kathy and Mo's Parallel Lives

n the opening scene, two Supreme Beings plan the beginning of the world with the relish of two slightly sadistic suburban wives decorating a living room. Once they've decided on the color scheme of the races, a little concerned that white people will feel slighted being such a boring color, they create sex and the sexes. Afraid women will have too many advantages, the Beings decide to make childbirth painful and to give men enormous egos as compensation.

From this moment, the audience is whisked through the outrageous universe of Kathy and Mo, where two actresses play men and women struggling through the common rituals of modern life: teenagers on a date, sisters at their grandmother's funeral, a man and a woman together in a country-western bar. With boundless humor, PARALLEL LIVES reexamines the ongoing quest to find parity and love in a contest handicapped by capricious gods—or in this case, goddesses. "…a romp with a feminist sensibility; it's a humor for a post-Lily Tomlin generation…Above all, PARALLEL LIVES is a smart, provocative show." —Variety. Directed by Whitney Morton and featuring Lisa Mae Roether and Martie van der Voort!
