This North Coast Weekend
Women of the Northwest continues with its second and final weekend at the Arcata Playhouse. I'll add one point to my generally expository and laudatory review: I felt at the time, and that impression has returned, that the section on prostitutes was the one place where the history was overromanticized. This group scene made it sound like these were empowered women running the equivalent of a restaurant. The reality was likely a lot more complicated, and unhealthy.
Also continuing (and ending) this weekend: In the Next Room (The Vibrator Play) at Ferndale Rep, and The Laramie Project at Eureka High.
