Parody is a skill best served in six short doses. At least, that’s the idea behind Durang/Durang, the latest production out of the South Puget Sound Community College’s Drama Department.

A compilation of shorter acts, Durang/Durang parodies everything from classic playwrights Tennessee Williams and Sam Sheppard, to more general broad themes. Originally penned in 1994, Durang/Durang does not consist of one long play, but rather, one full evening. The performance takes place at the Kenneth J. Minnaert Center for the Arts Black Box theatre.

In addition to For Whom the Southern Belle Tolls (Durang’s nod to Williams) and A Stye to the Eye (a play on Sheppard’s A Lie of the Mind); the evening also includes Business Lunch at the Russian Tea Room and several other Durang shorts.

The show runs from Feb. 25-27 and March 4-6 at 8 p.m., and on Feb. 28 and March 7 at 2 p.m. Tickets are $12.50 for the general public and $10 for student, faculty and staff. South Puget Sound students can purchase tickets for $2.50 with their IDs. Tickets are available at OlyTix.org or by calling (360) 753-8586.

For more information about the performance, call (360) 596-5411.
