Whenever my mother ticked me off when I was a kid, I would pantomime pulling an electrical cord from a wall socket. It was part of an ongoing family joke that I would eagerly pull the plug on her life-support system if she were hospitalized for so much as a broken toe. Yeah, my family has a dark sense of humor. So maybe we're the target audience for Snake in the Grass, a Bruce R. Coleman-directed performance of the Alan Ayckbourn play about two sisters blackmailed by their late father's nurse, who insists the old man had some undue assistance to the grave. Remaining performances of the show, now in its final week, are at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and 2:30 p.m. Sunday at Theatre Too inside Theatre Three, 2800 Routh St. Tickets ($25 to $30) are available at 214-871-3300 or theatre3dallas.com.
Fridays, Saturdays, 8 p.m.; Sundays, 2:30 p.m.; Thursdays, 7:30 p.m. Starts: Oct. 23. Continues through Nov. 15, 2009
