Reed College Theatre presents "Dirty Water," an original thesis production by Devon Granmo, October 6-8



Written by Devon Granmo and directed by Elana McKernan, "Dirty Water" is the tale of a bored academic who returns to her childhood home in rural Oregon to find it converted into a bed and breakfast run by aging hippies. It is also the story of agoraphobic messiahs, AWOL soldiers, lost gold, medical marijuana dispensation, plumbing, dictionary words, exorcisms, and the senseless violence of a world we can't control. Hilarity abounds.


7:30 p.m. on Thursday, October 6; Friday, October 7; and Saturday, October 8.


Reed College Theater, off Botsford Drive located on Botsford Drive (West end of campus), across from the tennis courts and gym. Botsford Drive is located off of 28th Avenue between Woodstock and Steele.


General admission is $3; $2 for seniors.


For reservations, please call the theatre box office at: 503/ 777-7284.
