7:30 p.m., Weekend Theater. $10-$14.
The Weekend Theater once again turns to playwright Jane Martin, who wrote “Keely and Du,” which the theater performed last November. The play, which runs this Friday and Saturday only, offers insight, through monologue, into more than 30 complex female characters. The Week-end Theater describes the humor as “off-beat” and promises “a collage about contemporary woman in all her warmth and majesty, fear and frus-tration … joy and sadness.”
7 p.m., Reynolds Performance Hall, UCA. $10-$20.
Four years ago, Jennifer Davis founded The Underground Railroad Neighborhood (T.U.R.N.), a not-for-profit creative literacy group that hosts classes, visits jails and juvenile centers and helps put on the Hip-Hop School. The group’s highest-profile venture is “Freedom,” a play Davis wrote and debuted in 2006. The drama follows the conversations and flashbacks and flash-forwards of eight would-be passengers stuck in a waiting room at the St. Louis airport. Davis says that her cast “effectively mirrors society and embraces diversity” and claims her play cap-tures “voices” never portrayed before. There will be one performance only.
