The Generic Ensemble Company presents this epic journey inspired by other works (including Brecht's The Good Person of Szechwan), found objects, and Anne Bogart’s Viewpoints, with stories woven together by "the mostly-queer, mostly-people-of-color cast and through the use of site-specific theatre, complete with a roving audience throughout The Vortex compound." Through May 31. Thu.-Sun., 8pm. $20-30 ($10, artists, students, seniors).
The Vortex, 2307 Manor Rd., 512/478-5282
