‘Something Epic/Everyday’ explores the concept of creating your own American dream – whatever that means. Researched, created, and performed by Tara Coen, Noah Dunham, Noelle Eaton, and Devon Wade Granmo; with direction by Ashley Hollingshead.

“SOMETHING EPIC/EVERYDAY” 
8 p.m. Thursday
Action/Adventure Theatre 

Officially, the latest recession is over and the unemployment figures are slowly getting slightly less bleak. But “Happy Days Are Here Again” sure isn’t on the hit parade. So the Working Theatre Collective and Action/Adventure Theatre — two of Portland’s most entertaining and provocative small performance companies — have teamed up to ask some questions, such as “What do you do when hard work just isn’t enough anymore?” and “How do you keep optimistic in these dark times?” Ashley Hollingshead directs a new play, researched and devised by the cast and described as “a mashup of found text, song lyrics and everyday life.” 

Opens 8 p.m. Thursday, continues 8 p.m. Thursdays-Saturdays through May 5, 1050 S.E. Clinton St.; $10-$15 (pay-what-you-will Thursdays), 503-893-9075,theworkingtheatrecollective.wordpress.com
