And the priest took us into the sacristy and the job, of all things, was to dig a grave in the yard..."

It's almost Halloween! If you're in the NYC area, I'd like to invite you to "The Weir," a play of spooky tales from Ireland. Just $15 fro MeFite's (see "more inside" for details). "Conor McPherson's The Weir is easily one of the most celebrated new plays of the past 20 years ... Folding Chair Classical Theatre's remounting of this lovely and elegiac play is an excellent opportunity to catch a faithful rendition of this sometimes chilling, sometimes sentimental piece that appears to be entrenching itself into the modern Western Canon ... I was glad to see the script as well served as it was." -- nytheatre.com [more inside]

Noel Coward play + possible socializing before or after

A pal of mine is in the Silver Spring Stage production of Noel Coward's Private Lives and nearly guarantees a good time to any attendee. Cutting British wit, that sort of thing. It's at 8. Wanna grab beverages/food before &/or after? Update: My pal says, "For pregaming, there's a Mexican place also across the street that is ideal - Fajita Coast." So I hereby propose that we meet there at 7pm. I shall be there with a book in any case. [more inside]
