Plays and pleasures, December 2003
I think Inez triangulates, along with Nell Sinton and Joan Brown, a special corner of the California archtype — the genteel tradition and its rebellious female witnesses and, if I may chance this, controllers. This is the force that restrained the killers of the grizzlies, the played-out transcontinental drifters and dodgers. It civilized (as far as possible) the ascending generations of merchants, legislators, profiteers, vigilantes. And it stitched together a past, dimly recalling European class-based comfort and even luxury; a present, resigned to crudities and privations; and a future now past to us, comfortable and secure.
