Death Be Very Proud

Looking for a great date night this fall? Sick of the same old dinner and a movie? Tired of getting hammered with your special someone at the same five bars over and over again and coming home to have the same drunken almost-sex before passing out in the kitchen on your way to get the Country Crock spread? Well, have we got the evening activity for you! Look no further than the Theatre of Death, seven short plays about murder, death and dying, guaranteed to put everyone in the mood. The plays, known as Teatro Breve (English: brief theatre—sound familiar, drunky?), are sure to titillate, as they have never before been produced in North Texas. With titles such as "Lamentation of the Fifth Anguish," "Song of Bitter" and "Havoc of Love and Jealous," the plays (each no longer than 30 minutes and with a guaranteed twist, mind you) will bring out the playful death-lover in all of us. Amp up the fun after the show by renting one of the feel-good Faces of Death videos at your local Blockbuster. [Editor's note: Ew. Don't.] The show runs in that most morbid of suburbs, Addison, at the Stone Cottage Theatre, 15650 Addison Road. Performances are 8 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays (beginning Wednesday, and through October 31), with 2:30 p.m. matinees Sundays. Tickets are $15 to $25, available online. Performances are obviously not appropriate for children...just the way we like 'em. Visit
Mondays-Saturdays, 8 p.m. Starts: Oct. 18. Continues through Oct. 31
