(February 27) DECADEnce The risk-takers at Rorschach Theatre celebrate a decade of decadence during their 10th year on the D.C. theater scene at Icon studio in Northwest D.C. this Saturday night at 7:30 p.m. You can join some of the city's most "eXciting" young actors, directors and designers during a party and silent auction to benefit this small yet feisty troupe.

(February 25-28) PICNIC INTRIGUE Catholic University's players present Picnic at Hanging Rock tomorrow through Sunday at the Northeast D.C. campus. In this 1967 mystery, an innocent Valentine's Day outing for a group of Austrian school girls winds up shrouded in mystery, gossip and intrigue.

(February 25-March 13) THORNY NEST Teatro de la Luna has its eye on spring with the Argentinian play Chumbale (Every Love Bird Needs a Nest) at the Gunston Arts Center in Arlington, Virginia, opening tomorrow. Written in 1971, the play portrays a newlywed who tries to put his own imprint on the home he shares with his in-laws, in a light comedy that quickly turns into bizarre absurdity.
