(May 10-June 19) A TIME TO KILL John Grisham's "A Time to Kill" is the first of the author's novels to be adapted for the stage. Arena Stage in Southwest Washington premieres the production about an unspeakable crime and an act of vengeance in a racially divided Mississippi city. Arena has the production through mid-June, when it leaves the District for Broadway.

(May 13-22) THE CLOCKMAKER Hub Theatre's "The Clockmaker" is part murder mystery, part comical love story. It's about a man, who just wants to repair his cuckoo clock, but ends up in a race against time. John Swayze Theatre in Fairfax has the play through the end of next week.

(May 10-June 10) THE AMERICAN EXPERIENCE The Greater Reston Arts Center showcases the work of three local artists with an inclination toward social commentary. Unrest, political divisiveness, and the unseen side of suburbia are all themes explored through video, installations, and performance.

Music: "Mr. Club" by Pretty Girls Make Graves

CORRECTION: The original audio for this piece incorrectly called the play at Hub Theatre "The Clockmaster." The play is "The Clockmaker."
