Weekly highlights for arts and entertainment in the Triangle

12 WEDNESDAY
What do a group of cloistered nuns know about the world, and what did a skeptic learn about faith from spending time with them? Author Kristin Ohlson can tell us when she reads from her new book Stalking the Divine: Contemplating Faith With the Poor Clares. 6:45 p.m., Watts Street Baptist Church, 800 Watts St., Durham. Also 7 p.m. Thu. at McIntyre's Fine Books in Fearrington Village, Pittsboro, 542-3030.

13 THURSDAY
Spring blossoms and warm sunshine mean it's time for fairy pranksters to get to work. Carolina Ballet presents another of choreographer George Balanchine's classics, A Midsummer Night's Dream, opening tonight and running through Sunday.

For information about the program, visit www.unc.edu/~cramer/prison.

15 SATURDAY
Triangle drivers, what do we need more of on the road? Hybrid cars. Yes! What else? Bike lanes. Yes--somebody please tell the DOT what those are. What else would make the roads better? Art cars! Tonight at 7 p.m., the nonprofit arts organization Play Matters rolls out its new project, Art Train, which will put mobile art installations on the road. A benefit at Fowler's Fine Food and Wine Store features music by Rebecca and the High Tones, dancing, appetizers, beer and wine, and the chance to see the first crop of mobile masterpieces. 112 S. Duke St, Durham. 560-2713. $25.

18 TUESDAY
If you think the system is broken, today is the day to tell your elected representatives to fix it. The bipartisan NC Coalition for a Moratorium is hosting Moratorium Lobby Day to press for a two-year suspension of executions while a study of the capital punishment system is conducted. Exonerees and legislators will be there, too. 933-7567, www.pfadp.org. The first 400 people to show up at the NC Museum of History in Raleigh (across from the General Assembly) get a free t-shirt, and all who come to learn about pending legislation get free lunch.
