Dust in the Wind
Just in case you haven't read John Steinbeck or listened to Woody Guthrie lately, here's a news flash: living in the Dust Bowl sucked. How else could you explain thousands of Texans wanting to move to California? Playwright Allison Moore, a Texas expat living in Minneapolis, has brought the story of one Dust Bowl residentJanie, a "fierce farm wife"to the stage in End Times, so named because many Okies thought the sky-blackening dust storms signaled the impending end of the world. Considering a person caught naked in one of the black clouds could have been stripped of most of their skin within a few minutes (!), this is somewhat understandable. See End Times at 8 p.m. Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays through June 30. And a word to the wise: The show contains some cigarette smoking, as if the Dust Bowl didn't do enough lung damage already. Tickets are $15 to $20 ($25 on opening night). Call 214-953-1055 or visit kitchendogtheater.org.
Thursdays-Saturdays, 8 p.m. Starts: June 8. Continues through June 30
