It's the late 1960s, and change is coming to the Mississippi Delta. Years after "Brown v. Board of Education", the federal government is putting pressure on local schools to admit black students alongside white ones, and the controversy has turned the once-sleepy rural region into something resembling a warzone. Caught in the middle of the chaos are two white sisters, Nola and Nell, with very different opinions on whether their community should integrate or not. But Nola and Nell are in for the shock of a lifetime when they get a visit from their long-lost half-sister - an educated, well-to-do Northerner who also happens to be half black. As their worlds collide, the siblings struggle to rekindle the bonds of sisterhood in comic drama "Split in Three", coming to Lawrenceville's Aurora Theatre. [less-]

The Greeks may have set the template for epics, but American history is filled with events that can easily inspire epics of their own. "Father Comes Home From the Wars", like the Greek tragedies that inspired it, is the story of a warrior setting out for battle and then making the long journey home. But in this case, the warrior is a slave who has been offered his freedom in exchange for fighting for the Confederacy. Set in the Civil War, this explosively powerful new trilogy by Pulitzer Prize winner Suzan-Lori Parks ("Topdog/Underdog") at Atlanta's Actor's Express follows the slave, Hero, from West Texas to the Confederate battlefield and back home again. Described as Parks' "finest work yet" by "The New York Times", the "Father Comes Home From the Wars" trilogy -- which was a Pulitzer Prize finalist -- is a masterful blend of the serious and the comic that is at once an epic drama, a moving personal story and a thoughtful meditation on liberty and loyalty.

In this Tony and Pulitzer Prize-winning family drama, Catherine, the troubled daughter of a recently deceased mathematician, is gripped by the fear that she may haveve inherited her father's mental illness. "Proof" tracks her desperate attempts to stay in control -- despite complications including a budding romance with one of her father's former students, the appearance of a mysterious new work by her dad and the arrival of her long-estranged sister. Set in Chicago, the play chronicles the discovery of self identity through intellectual and emotional challenges and explores the power of love to help us reach our true potential. David Auburn's moving and thought-provoking play, which "The New York Daily News" called "rich and compelling ... full of life, laughter and hope," comes to the stage at the Northside United Methodist Church Faith & Arts Center.

On the night of their senior prom, four friends promise to be in each other's weddings (no matter what) -- but they have no idea they'll still be fulfilling the promise 30 years later. Written by the trio of Jessie Jones ("Kingdom Come"), Nicholas Hope ("Teacher's Pet") and Jamie Wooten ("The Golden Girls"), "Always A Bridesmaid" asks the question, just how far are you willing to go to keep a promise to a friend? The story centers around hopeful romantic Libby Ruth, who has a perfect marriage, Deedra, who's just found out her husband has a wandering eye, tree-hugging Charlie, who panics when it's time for her own marriage, and high-spirited and self-involved Monette, who's tested her friends' patience with all-too-frequent trips down the aisle. If you've ever worn a hideous bridesmaid dress, knocked over a friend to catch the bouquet or questioned the sanity of getting married in the first place, you're sure to say "I do!" to this hilarious comedy. Don't miss all the matrimonial mishaps when The Magari Theatre Company presents "Always A Bridesmaid" at the Red Clay Music Foundry in Duluth. [less-]

With more than 1,600 cans and over 450 bottle of beer consumed onstage, Sh*t-Faced Shakespeare has racked up impressive numbers. Ripping a page out of the ingeniously sloppy series "Drunk History", the theater troupe behind Sh*t-Faced Shakespeare inserts an entirely inebriated cast member into an entirely serious production of "A Midsummer Night's Dream". Laugh-out-loud funny and completely interactive, the series has been selling out shows in the UK since 2010 and finally makes its way stateside. With audiences dictating when the drunk actor must drink more, no two performances are ever the same. And lest you think it disrespectful, it's all based on the good 'ol days of the raucous, interactive and vibrant Elizabethan theater scene. The most fun, bawdy Shakespeare play you'll ever see happens at Atlanta's Village Theatre. [less-]
