    Dry Land

    Ruby Rae Spiegel's intense drama, set almost entirely in the girls' locker room of a Florida high school, explores "the complexities of female friendship, abortion, adolescents in crisis, and the terrifying process of becoming yourself." Directed by Marian Kansas for Permanent Record. Note: Nudity and graphic content. And here's what our reviewer thought of the show.
    Through Dec. 2. Thu.-Sat., 8pm. $12-25.  
    Mastrogeorge Theatre, 130 Pedernales Ste. 318-B.

    The Contemporary Austin: John Bock + Wangechi Mutu

    Bock's Dead + Juicy exhibition centers around a newly commissioned film that was shot in and around Austin, blending classic Westerns and dark comedy with spooky thriller and horror aesthetics. Mutu offers a new, site-specific edition of Throw, 2017, a painting created by the artist throwing black paper pulp against the wall, resulting in an abstract composition that dries, hardens, and then degrades over time.
    Through Jan. 14
