(Sept. 5) Stand By Me

If a trip out to Silver Spring isn't too laborious, the AFI Silver screens Stand By Me this afternoon at 12:30. Four boys head out on a journey to find the dead body of a missing person in the coming of age classic that turns 25 this year. If you can't make it today, there are two more chances on Wednesday and Thursday.

(Sept. 6-Oct. 23) The Heir Apparent

Washington's Shakespeare Theatre Company debuts The Heir Apparent tomorrow at the Lansburgh Theatre in Northwest. The adaptation of Jean-François Regnard’s 18th century farce follows Eraste as he tries really hard to secure an inheritance in order to marry the girl of his dreams. Love, family and intrigue make for a funny mix through late October.

(Sept. 7-25) Friends and Family

Workhouse Arts Center in Lorton has Family and Friends through late September. The arts hub invited all of its artists to submit one work and told each to ask a family member or a friend to do something in a similar style. It's part of Workhouse's mantra that "Art is life and life is enriched by those we surround ourselves with."
