For Time & Eternity

American Berserk Theatre, who previously brought us the critically lauded hit show Subject to Control, returns with their latest, written by Curtis Luciani, directed by Rob Yoho, and starring Kaci Beeler. Which already has us clicking for a ticket, but listen to what it's about. Subtitled The Secret History of Mormonism's Elect Lady and Her Sister Wives, it's a look behind the veil of the Mormon faith's proud beginnings, an exploration of the precarious balance between love, faith, and duty in an embattled religious community. Through April 22. Thu.-Sat., 8pm. $15.

First Unitarian Universalist Church, 4700 Grover, 512/452-6168
