    Caught

    See the interior of Hyde Park Theatre transformed into an art gallery for a show by a dissident Chinese conceptual artist, a man who was imprisoned and tortured for an art piece in which he organized an imaginary protest. Or maybe that's what they're doing, as HPT presents this intricate, puzzling Christopher Chen drama – under the direction of Ken Webster, with performances by Norman Tran, Esther Park, Rebecca Robinson, and Robert Pierson. And, look: Here's Bob Abelman's review of the production.
    Through Sept. 23. Thu.-Sat., 8pm. $23-28 (pay what you can, Thursdays).
