    • 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.

    • Invulnerable Nothings: Bloody Poetry and (un)Staged Readings

      This romantic (ahem, Romantic) project of theatrical conjuring concerns "the intersecting historical dramas, both literary and personal, of Percy Bysshe Shelley, Mary Shelley, Lord Byron, and Claire Clairmont from the summer of 1816 until Shelley’s death in the summer of 1822." And that's evoked via performances of Howard Brenton's Bloody Poetry play about the muse-ridden company, and by readings from Frankenstein, Prometheus Unbound, and Cain. Bonus: live music. Bloody Poetry: Thu.-Sun., April 27-30, 8pm. (un)Staged Readings: Sat.-Sun., April 29-30, 3pm. Free

      The Sekrit Theatre, 1145 Perry.
