The Mendocino Community High School presents ³Baby with the Bathwater,² an
absurdist version of parenting gone awry. Directed by Senior Lilly
Deerwater, this play starts with two parents who are hardly prepared for
parenthood. They can¹t decide what to name the baby. They can¹t even decide
what gender it is. The play follows, as nearly every societal factor that
might improve the child¹s life fails and breaks down. It runs on March 20,
21, 27, and 28th at 7:00 PM, and March 22 at 2:00 PM at the Matheson
Performing Arts Center. There is a $5 suggested donation at the door. For
more information, call Kamala at the Mendocino Community High School at
