FRIDAY LOWDOWN: Who Killed That Hippo?

The Mad River Festival breaks out of Blue Lake for handful of productions of Forgive Us, Gustavito! at the Arcata Playhouse this weekend. The play is “set in the backdrop of a horrific crime, inspired by bizarre true events” and concerns “Gustavito, the solitary hippo of the National Zoo” who’s been “found dead from fifteen stab wounds to the snout.” Bummer!

Details on that and other Friday goodies in your Lowdown listings below.
