Around Town

'God of Carnage' explores parenting

Company of Fools presents the 2009 Tony Award-winning play "God of Carnage" starring Keith Moore and Patsy Wygle and John Glenn and Denise Simone as couples with children in a playground fight.

The New Yorker calls the play "90 minutes of sustained mayhem."

Real-life couple Moore and Wygle are Alan and Annette Raleigh, who visit the apartment of Glenn and Simone as Michael and Veronica Novak, for what all believe will be a civil discussion about how to deal with a fight between their sons.

The Community Library in Ketchum will host a discussion with the director, set designer and actors Wednesday, Feb. 8, from 6-7 p.m. The show will run at the Liberty Theatre in Hailey from Feb. 15 to March 3.

Yoga for people with cancer

Hailey Yoga Center will offer a four-week series of yoga for cancer patients taught by Kristin Biggins, an occupational therapist who specializes in therapeutic yoga.

The dates are Feb. 2, 9, 16 and 23, from 5:30-6:45 p.m. in Hailey.

Pre-registration is required by calling 788-8773.

Writer seeks subjects for book

Recent Colorado transplant, author and photographer Dagny McKinley is seeking gritty, entertaining and honest stories about life as a mountain woman in Idaho, Montana or Wyoming, from Native Americans to frontier women to modern-day women who take refuge and challenge their souls in the mountains. Any story is welcome, including folklore and tall tales.

McKinley recently surprised Christmas customers at the Hailey Coffee Co. with free copies of her photo essay book on dog sledding in the Rockies.

"I figure it may be one of the best ways I can think of to get to know my new home," she said.

She can be reached at 970-846-6768 or
