Photo by Mona Hill Mona Hill Staff Writer "Parallel Lives" by Mo Gaffney and Kathy Najimy opens this Friday for a three- weekend run at West End Theatre. The play is a two-woman revue centered on the nature of human relationships and similar in style to "The Vagina Monologues." Stars Kim Carroll and Tina Terrazas open the show as two beings planning the shape of humanity, worrying about details such as procre- ation, skin color and overall gender characteristics. Concerned that people with white skin will feel "bland', as compared to other skin colors, they make a "note to self" to monitor POEM OF THE WEEK American Life in Poetry Ted Kooser U.S. Poet Laureate, 2004 - 06 Psychologists must"7e a word,or it, the phenomenon of shifting the focus of sadness from the source of that sadness to something else. Here's a fine poem on this subject by Penelope Scambly Schott, who lives in Oregon. Second Tour While my husband packed to fly back to Vietnam, this time as a tourist instead of a soldier, I drove to the zoo to say goodbye to the musk oxen who were being shipped out early next morning to Tacoma. We were getting lions instead. When I got there, it was too easy to park. The zoo was closing early so they wouldn't let me in. I went back to my car and slid into the driver's seat. Sobs tore from deep in my'chest, I who had never seen a musk ox and never cared until now. --Penelope Scambly Schott Poem copyright 2010 by Penelope Scambly Schott American Life in Poetry is made possible by The Poetry Foundation, publisher of Poetry magazine.

With acerbic wit, the play challenges the conven- tional wisdom of human relationships through a series of sketches addressing everything from teen love to homosexuality. Carroll and Terrazas play some 20 roles through the course of the evening, chang- ing 'age, gender and ethnicity as required. During early rehearsals, the pair shifted characters from sketch to sketch with subtle shifts of accent, presence and body language. Carroll and Terrazas moved from flighty dimwit girl- friend and "surfer dude" boyfriend to best friends forever teenage girls in moments, all while drawing laser-like focus on life and human relationships. Terrazas, self-described as extremely shy, said, "Getting onstage as someone else is so thrilling and freeing. I can act as I never would as myself." She draws from her own life experiences, people- watching and from her daughter in bringing out the motivations for her characters. Carroll performed "Parallel Lives" 15 years ago with Jill Purdue. She said there was a lot of flak at the time about "that lesbian play." "Lives" has extra meaning for Carroll, who has been diagnosed with multiple scle- rosis. People tell her she "doesn't look sick" despite the physical and cognitive challenges she faces with MS. She wants others to look past external appearance to the character within. During the play's run, the cast will be soliciting donations in awareness of national Multiple Sclerosis Month. Proceeds will go to the MS Society in Reno. Tickets, $15 for adults and $10 for seniors/FRC students, are available from Carey Candy Co., Epilog Books and Alley Cat Cafe.
