    Rude Fusion: Bear Eats Bear

    Rude Mechs and groundswell theatre company present Lydia Blaisdell's retro-future audio adventure that invites theatre fans, audiophiles, and hikers to join the Rebellion and discover the fabled Archive of the Before Time in a feral, apocalyptic American wilderness. Directed by Katie Van Winkle, with performances by Martinique Duchene-Phillips, Katie Dahm, and Megan Tabaque, and featuring a panoply of local voice talents on cassette tape. It's "a hike, a collage, a satire, a desperate plea, and a memorial for the world’s transient and fierce beauty," says the director. And right here is what our reviewer says.
    Through Nov. 12. Sat.-Sun., 3 & 5pm. $10-25.

    The Seafarer

    It's the Austin premiere for this Conor McPherson play about luck, the past, and the power of friendship. Darkly funny? Riddled with perilous personal history and booze? We did say McPherson, did we not? Directed by Karen Sneed for City Theatre. And this is what our reviewer thought of the show.
    Through Nov. 26. Thu.-Sat., 8pm; Sun., 3pm. $15-25 ($10, Thursdays).
