How Water Speaks to Rock
Meymandi Theatre at Murphey School Auditorium—Durham playwright Miriam Angress won a coveted drama grant from the North Carolina Arts Council last year in support of her play, How Water Speaks to Rock. Produced in cooperation with Little Green Pig Theatrical Concern, Angress' play promises to tackle urgent ecological issues through the prism of dramatic symbolism. The story seems to take place in an environmental apocalypse: According to promotional materials, "a prominent political family grapples with the effects of global catastrophe, tangling with a band of returning exiles and coping with the intrusion of an insistent dream world that carries mysterious messages into their ordinary lives."

Angress has strong technical support: The director is Marc Williams, director of new works for Burning Coal Theatre who was responsible for the acclaimed 2006 Coal production The Shadow Box. Erin Cressida Wilson (Secretary, Fur) says Angress' work "successfully incorporates the everyday, the colloquial, the poetic, the violent, the sweet, and the mythic." The show opens Oct. 3 and continues through Oct. 12. Today's matinee is at 2 p.m. Visit A portion of proceeds support the Nature Conservancy and the World Wildlife Fund. —David Fellerath

Chapel Hill
Anne-Sophie Mutter
Memorial Hall, UNC Campus—The sweeping lyricism of her bow lifts listeners up through romanticism and humanity: A former child prodigy, Anne-Sophie Mutter, now 45, has grown into one of the most famous violinists in the world. Playing bare-shouldered in extravagant strapless gowns without a shoulder rest brings Mutter closer to her instrument. In support of her latest Bach-Gubaidulina recording, Mutter will play three Bach concertos followed by Tartini's virtuostic Devil's Trill Sonata. The evening of Baroque music will kick off Mutter's North American Bach Festival tour. The Camerata Salzburg Chamber Orchestra accompanies. Tickets cost $10-$100 for the 7:30 p.m. start. —Andrew Ritchey
