Dec. 2-22: The Lyons
You can see The Lyons, a comedy by Nicky Silver, through Dec.22 at The Round House Theatre in Bethesda. The play centers on a dysfunctional family trying to cope with the impending loss of its patriarch, who is dying of cancer. But even though most of the show is set in a hospital room, it's not all somber. The mother of the family has a lot to deal with, between a dying husband, a son in a dubious relationship, and a daughter who is barely holding it together. Tempers flare, words are exchanged, and secrets are revealed. Worst of all, Rita can't figure out how to redesign her living room. 

Dec. 2-Jan. 4, 2014: CURIO
A group exhibit at Heiner Contemporary in Northwest offers a modern twist on 16th and 17th century wunderkammern, or cabinets of curiosity. CURIO explores how information is catalogued and why certain things are collected. The exhibit features work by six artists and will be on view through January 4.
