THE GRATITUDE OF WASPS
UNIVERSITY MALL—Deep Dish Theater unveils The Gratitude of Wasps, written by Durham native Adam Sobsey, who also writes literary reviews for the Indy (and theater reviews for the N&O). The production is the first premiere in the theater's history and "a new kind of adventure" for artistic director Paul Frellick, who has worked with Sobsey before. The Gratitude of Wasps is a "fiercely funny and acutely observed drama" about three couples' annual beach vacation and the tumultuous dynamics that make the trip anything but a vacation.

UNIVERSES POETIC THEATER COMPANY
UNC CAMPUS—The Los Angeles Times calls Universes "fierce, funny and bitingly intelligent." The five-member ensemble uses its knowledge of jazz, blues, gospel, salsa, Nuyorican poetry and their combined urban experiences to create language. Tonight's performance is at 8 p.m. in the Center for Dramatic Arts. A spoken-word contest will follow the show with a cash prize. Tickets are $20. For more info, visit www.playmakersrep.org or call 962-7529. —Iesha Brown
