Eugene Weekly : Theater : 1.18.07

Opening Nights


Opens Friday, Jan. 19 at the Very Little Theatre. Lanford Wilson’s story of small-town murder and betrayals set against the backdrop of a cheese plant and fundamentalist religion is said to be a mix of Twin Peaks, Our Town and The Laramie Project. Hm. Little town, intrigues, backstabbing city goverments … sounds like recent headlines of nearby Oregon hamlets, no? The VLT’s notes say “Contains adult language and is not appropriate for children,” which of course should make every middle- and high-schooler in town bolt for the box office. Show dates are Jan. 19-21 & 26-28 and Feb. 1-4 & 8-10. Call 344-7751 for tickets.
