Taboo Bijou
Dreamwell Theatre announces its 13th season - "Taboo Bijou" - featuring works intended to raise questions about topics considered "taboo" and why. From language to terrorism to various expressions of sexuality, the plays push boundaries and limits by confronting subjects that are often difficult or inappropriate to discuss. Mind you, the purpose of "taboo bijou" is not mere shock value, but, rather the examination of personal fears and desires in the context of social perception and stigma.

Poona the F**kdog (and other plays for children)
The perfect naughty fairy tale to open a "taboo" season, this show skewers society's views on everything from sex to terrorism to language. (Despite the title, this play is not suitable for children).

Directed by Brian Tanner and Meg Dobbs

This classic returns to OCT - it's theater home!

10 years ago Open Circle Theater premiered Poona, Jeff Goode's astounding comedy that was too shocking for the theater which commissioned it.

Our ingenuous heroine Poona meets up with aliens, talking shrubs, and mealy-mouthed salesmen in her quest to find someone to play in her big pink box.

Nothing is sacred in this hysterical assault on the power of language.

Hi Jeff, this is Ron Sandahl over at Open Circle Theater. Hard to believe that it's been ten years since we put up Poona! You may not have heard but we lost our former theater home of over ten years to developement, but we have opened a brand new theater space closer to downtown. I was talking to the company and they were super jazzed about the idea of doing Poona in our 2009-2010 season. I wanted to find out, first off, if it was available? We were looking at a run from 3/19 - 4/17/10.
