Tillamook Association for the Performing Arts (TAPA) will be presenting "God of Carnage" for three weekends in September.
"God of Carnage" is a one act play, where two couples meet for the first time after an incident on the playground between their 11 year old children. They hope to discuss the situation civilly, but as the night wears on, communications break down.
"God of Carnage" is written by Yasmina Rena. The play, originally written in French and performed in France, gained world wide attention when it was translated to English and performed in the UK and US. It won a Tony award for "Best Play" in 2009.
The show will be performed at the Red Barn at the corner of 12th and Tillamook River Road

I found a copy of The Tillamook Herald published 105 years ago (8 August 1913) last night and found it to be rather intriguing on a couple of fronts.
What first stood out what the adoption of the labor laws in regards to girls, not boys, but to girls! The cultural difference of 100 years in how we view ourselves is quite interesting. But after a second reading, what sunk in was this: with this legislation, Oregon is the first state to pass a compulsory minimum wage!
This makes one wonder what is it that we do today that will catch the attention of people 100 years from now.
What is interesting to note about this
