When: Wednesdays-Saturdays, 8 p.m. Continues through Aug. 19 2017
Maria and Laura have known each other for most of their lives, but they have been apart for the last few years. In the interim Maria's art career has taken off, and she's married well. Laura is struggling to get by, professionally and emotionally. But it wasn't that long ago that the two were bound together, emotionally, physically and creatively. What happened in the past that makes this current meeting more of a cautious interrogation and stand-off than a happy reunion? Paloma Pedrero's The Color of August is a psychological investigation of two women who once shared a life — but now can barely share the same room. Slightly Askew Theatre Ensemble presents The Color of August at 8 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday (August 9 to 19) at the Chapel (6238 Alexander Drive; www.slightlyoff.org). Tickets are $15 to $20.
