Nov. 13-Dec. 29: The Apple Family Plays
The Apple Family Plays, a series of political family dramas by Richard Nelson, goes on stage today in rotating repertory at The Studio Theatre. Serge Seiden directs the two plays with a linked storyline, That Hopey Changey Thing and Sweet and Sad. The first play follows a family’s dinner table conversation on the eve of Obama’s first midterm election...the second picks up one year later during a luncheon commemorating the 10th anniversary of 9/11. You can check them out through December 29.

Nov. 9-Dec. 14: Supreme Magnetic
You can see a solo exhibit at Project 4 Gallery in Northwest featuring work by local artist Ellington Robinson. In Supreme Magnetic, Robinson layers pieces of worn furniture with found broken glass, charred album sleeves and other vestiges of cultural memory on canvas in an effort to create a sort of map of the economic, political and sociological forces that shape man-made boundaries. You can see the work through December 14.
