Thanksgiving weekend 1971. A man calling himself D.B. Cooper boards a plane in Portland, hijacks it for $200,000 at the SeaTac Airport, then parachutes into a snowstorm over Mount Rainier, never to be seen again. “db” brings to life this electric story, showing how the enduring myth of Cooper has created a canvas for regular Americans to act out fantasies of heroism, celebrity, revenge, retribution, and rage.

Directed by Teddy Bergman, “db” will be developed via the PCS JAW Festival over the course of two weeks with other work by Adam Bock, Penny Penniston & Mat Smart.
