Wednesday, April 7
Here's a tip that bridal shows don't offer to just-engaged couples as they prepare for their big day: Don't go see Edward Albee's Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? or its more comic variation, Marriage Play. The once-in-love couples in each--during four acts in Who's and one in Marriage--show how affection and tolerance can turn into resentment and sadism as they try to embarrass, weaken and defeat their other halves. During these game-like interactions, the pairs reveal not just their histories, but also how each reacted to them and what they see in the future. WingSpan Theatre company performs Marriage Play through April 24 with a preview 8 p.m. Wednesday. The rest of the run includes performances at 8 p.m. Thursdays through Saturdays, plus a 2 p.m. matinee on April 17 and an 8 p.m. show Wednesday, April 21. Tickets are $10 for the preview and $12 to $17 for the rest of the run. The April 21 show is pay-what-you-can. Bath House Culture Center, 521 E. Lawther Drive. Call 972-504-6218.
