Some great literature was born amid the social revolution of the '60s. Whether a utopian society of happiness or one of post-apocalyptic turmoil, everyone had their own ideas of what society should and could become, and a 1964 novella by Richard Brautigan, In Watermelon Sugar, gave us a little bit of both. Set in a small village called iDEATH (no relation to iPOD), Brautigan gave us a vision of a post-revolutionary, post-tiger (yes, tigers) world where villagers lived happy, consumer-free lives. Leave it to a disgruntled drunk named inBOIL to start up a new revolution of his owna violent one against this idyllic life. Adapted for the stage and directed by Johnny Simons, performances of In Watermelon Sugar take place at 8:15 p.m. Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays through October 28 (beverages and live music starting at 6:30 p.m.) at HipPocket Theatre, 1950 Silver Creek Road in Fort Worth. Tickets are $15. Call 817-246-9775 or visit hippocket.org.
Fridays-Sundays, 8:15 p.m. Starts: Oct. 22. Continues through Oct. 28
