As the curtains opened, the lights turned toward the stage to reveal a rattled auburn-haired woman; dressed up in red lipstick and a velvet dress, she drops her script notes.

The Pierce College Theatre Department is premiering the play “Durang Durang,” a series of six one-act plays. The show will run Nov. 30 through Dec. 9.

The production is a mixture of culture shocks and gags.

Durang Durang speaks with a light hearted tone over the dark and controversial subject matter.

In the first act, the audience is informed to expect laughter and slight irritation from the performances.

Durang Durang explores various topics in satire, portraying the normalization of selective murders and hate crimes.
