'Private Eyes' will bring back performances at the college beginning with shows on Nov. 18-21

Clackamas Community College's Theatre Department will welcome the community back to in-person performances with the comedy-thriller "Private Eyes" by Steven Dietz as the fall main stage production.

Steven Dietz, who penned the comedy "Becky's New Car," describes "Private Eyes" as a "comedy of suspicion." The audience plays the role of detective in this relationship thriller about love, lust and deception as they witness five characters navigate a twisty-turny plot where nothing is quite what it seems.
