... Lynne Duddy
Singlehandedly!, Portland Story Theater's New Works Solo Festival, is the forum where Lynne has presented each of her solo shows.
2012's solo show, "White Girl," is a story of growing up in N-NE Portland in the 60s and 70s, identifying as a member of the Civil Rights Generation, and being shaped by the powerful changes that continue to occur in our culture around race, community, and what it means to be human.
In 2011, she told "Éist! Is Éireannach mé! (Listen! I'm Irish!)," a true story of the serendipitous windings of fate that brought the love child of one father under the protection of another was met with a warm welcome by the Portland Story Theater community.
Lynne's solo show, "There's No Place Like Home" premiered at Portland Story Theater's Singlehandedly 2010 New Solo Works Festival and then the NSN's LA Fringe Festival. She also performed an excerpt of this piece at the National Story Slam in Chicago.
Her one-woman show, "dark matter," premiered at the first Portland Story Theater Solo Festival before sold-out audiences. Read Inara Verzemnieks' review in The Oregonian. If you would like to order a copy of this audio CD, go to CD Baby and buy it there!
