The year is 1994, and the small town of Big Bone, Oregon, much like David Lynch's Twin Peaks, is filled with secrets. Every month a lumberjack disappears, and some say they've all been killed by a cult of murderous secretaries. Patty Johnson is the new girl at the Cooney Lumber Mill, and she quickly finds herself in the midst of a mystery. The Secretaries is a darkly hilarious satire of the cultural expectations forced upon women that is as sharp as a bloody chainsaw blade.
Starring: Andrea Rose Cardoni, Sarah Heddins, Amber Orion, Faith Sullivan, and Quanece Thompson
Written by David Bottrell and Jessie Jones
Directed by Dakota Adams

In the backwoods of the Bible Belt, the dysfunctional Turpin family proves that living and dying in the South are seldom tidy and always hilarious. Despite their earnest efforts to pull themselves together for their father’s funeral, the Turpins’ other problems keep overshadowing the solemn occasion. Amidst the chaos, they find comfort in friends and neighbors, an eccentric community of misfits who just manage to pull together and help each other through their hours of need, and finally, the funeral.
Kathy Harmer, Mary Ann Domanska, Hanlon Smith-Dorsey, Tanya Morgan, Emma Taylor, Eric Crist, Audra Casebier, Faith Yesner, Michael Tamin Yurcaba, Steven Butler
Written by Josefina López

March 11-13 and 18-20
Set in a tiny sewing factory in East L.A., this is the outrageously funny story of five full-figured Mexican-American women who are racing to meet nearly impossible production deadlines in order to keep their tiny factory from going under. And while they work, they talk... about their husbands and lovers, their children, and their own dreams for the future. This play, a microcosm of the Latina immigrant experience, celebrates real women's bodies, the power of women, and the incredible bond that happens when women work together.
Starring: Caren Bermúdez, Evangeline Martinez, Linda Morales, Andrea Ong, Jacqueline Rocco, and Lisa Rojas
May 13-15, and 20-22
Vanya and his niece Sonia live on the family estate. Sonia’s father and his beautiful third wife, Ella, have arrived to announce the imminent sale of the estate. Sonia longs for Dr. Aster, her uncle’s best friend, who lusts after Ella, as does Vanya, as does Pickles, a heartbroken lesbian who lives over the garage. And then there’s Babs, an artistic soul who came to help tend to Sonia’s dying mother and never left. Egos clash, hearts hunger, and souls cry out for meaning in this very funny and quite touching re-imagining of a timeless classic. Familiarity with the Chekhov original is definitely not required.
