tenMYTHS 10 Myths on the Proper Application of Beauty Products, the first full-length show of Buntport's 15th Season, could be called an adaptation of local author Miriam Suzanne's novel Riding SideSaddle*. However, it is more like a supplement to the novel, which is printed on 250 interchangeable index cards and is an "open source" text, meant to be added to, adapted, morphed into something new.

Following a group of friends that resist order, category and completion, this play weaves myth and storytelling with every day rituals. It is about people deeply in love, suffering loss, celebrating strangeness, all while they pluck their eyebrows. It is about the Greek myth of Salmacis and Hermaphroditus, who are merged into "one being of both sexes" and about what we see when we look in the mirror. Oh, and the whole thing is underscored by a band standing in the bathtub.

At Buntport, we write all of our own plays. We are proud of our ever-growing body of work. Take some time to dig through information about past productions, listed below. On occasion, we will tour some shows to festivals, schools, or businesses. More information about how to book the shows can be found here, or you can email us with questions.

Our legendary live sitcoms, Magnets On The Fridge and Starship Troy, and our first all-ages series tRUNks have archive sections all their own, and we also commemorate all the winners from our Teacher's Pet and Buntport Versus series.
