"Time Out of Mind," a play based on 1922 newspaper accounts of an alleged branding of a young woman by the Ku Klux Klan in Tillamook County, will play on the North Coast at two locations.

The play, written by Tillamook County resident Helen Hill, is two acts with a cast of 14. It will play at 8 p.m. Friday, March 14 at the Coaster Theater Playhouse, 108 N. Hemlock, in Cannon Beach and at 8 p.m. Saturday, March 15 at the Clatsop Community College Performing Arts Center, 16 Street and Franklin Avenue in Astoria.

"Time Out of Mind" is set against a backdrop of coastal storms, prohibition, women's suffrage, the red scare, Wobblies, union agitators and the silent, hooded presence of the Klan. It explores the roots and consequences of fear and intolerance close to home.

The play has already performed in Bay City, Nehalem and Portland.

Tickets are $5 at the door.
