Accidents The Short List (Theater) Closing (Theater and Galleries)

When: Sundays. Continues through Feb. 25 2018

Karen O. Fort's chosen-family dramedy examines the sexual revolution and women's liberation movements of the 1970s through the lens of one cohabitating group of Pacific Northwest friends. An out-of-work teacher and her firefighter roommates have their own mid-midlife crises interrupted when a teenage runaway (Stella Akua Mensah) arrives unannounced at their cabin doorstep looking for help. What follows that promising setup is the sort of low-stakes, languid, talky drama that feels like the filler in a long-running series, not a condensed two-act story. But when it's not spinning its wheels or winking too hard at history, Rose Freeman's production has some lightly comedic and romantic dynamics that ring heartfelt and true. Part of the Rhinoceros Theater Festival. —Dan Jakes
