PDX presents two one-acts filled with drama and comic relief by two emerging female playwrights on the Portland scene. In Johanna Courtleigh’s one-woman show, Wild Bill, Lurleen is called to the hospital after her brother Bill has suffered a serious bicycle accident. Bill is in a coma, and doctors hope that hearing a familiar voice will help him regain consciousness. Estranged for years, as she attempts to connect with him, truths from their history begin to emerge. In Tracy Locke’s A Holding Tank, five strangers are trapped in a bar. The only exit is guarded by an ancient song and dance bartender. How hard could it be to escape?
