Tango Mike

Written/Directed by Dan Stone

Tango Mike is an original play based on the lives and stories of Willamette Valley veterans and their families suffering from the effects of PTSD.
This was a workshop production with non-professional actors and performed by members of the veteran community.
Set in Albany, Oregon on Memorial Day, Mike "Buddy" McIntyre and his family are celebrating the holiday with family and friends. Unexpectedly, Buddy's estranged father, Cooper, shows up. Buddy and his father have not talked for fifteen years. Both men grapple with their own battles with PTSD and how it has affected their relationship and their families.

This play was created through interviews and story circles with veterans and their families from Albany, Corvallis, Philomath, Lebanon, Salem and Sweet Home Oregon.
