How To Stop Dying says
Opening May 7th running through May 30th, Action/Adventure is proud to present a brand new work by company member Noah Dunham:

How to Stop Dying
A comedy about ghosts, ghost hunters, and attempting the impossible.

Thursdays-Saturdays, 8pm
At Action/Adventure Theatre, 1050 SE Clinton

How to Stop Dying is a play in two acts. An ensemble driven comedy that explores the themes of death, loss, immortality, and paranormal activity. The project has been in development since October 2014 as Noah Dunham and his cast worked together to research themes, build story lines, and develop characters. What has come out of a five month devising & workshopping process is the story of a cynical Executive Producer (Sarah) whose recent loss of her father has led her and her Ghost Hunting reality show into the deep back country of eastern Oregon. Their reasoning? A recent submission from the owner of a funeral services company (Franklin Pine), who claims to have caught a real ghost on camera. A ghost that greatly resembles Sarah's recently deceased father. Needless to say, this funeral home might be up to more than just burying the recently passed in rural Oregon.

Movement, music, and contemporary musings on the themes of death and loss will take center stage in this energetic and irreverent production that will have it's World Premiere at Action/Adventure.
