Is human nature good or evil? Can you move beyond your past if you were raised on a commune? Does industrial livestock farming of pigs and poultry lead to new diseases? These are the questions raised on this program, hosted by the Old Mole's Denise Morris.

The Ubu Hour adapts Albert Camus's THE PLAGUE just in time for the swine flu pandemic... Actually we ran a longer version of this show 3 years ago, when people were worried about avian flu and how the Bush administration would react to it. So we took that 1 hour show, chopped out all the Bush parts, added in a page of dialog about swine flu, and voila! A new Ubu episode...
On tomorrow's (Tues, May 8th 11-1130am) membership edition of Stage and Studio, I'll be featuring Artists Repertory Theatre's "Three Sisters" which got a new adaption from Pulitzer Finalist Tracy Letts. I'll be talking with the always brilliant Jon Kretzu and two sisters, Amaya Villazan and Andrea Frankle. We'll be offering five pairs of tix for memberships. Also Portland Opera donated a pair of tix to May 8th opening nite of Verdi's Rigeletto.
