When the Bulbul Stopped Singing

Chapel Hill
When the Bulbul Stopped Singing
Playmakers Repertory—Adapted for the stage by David Greig, When the Bulbul Stopped Singing was penned by Palestinian human rights lawyer and writer Raja Shehadeh during the Israeli army occupation of his hometown. The play is inspired by the terror and humiliation endured by his family while Ramallah was under occupation. There will be six performances between tonight's opener and Sunday, and each will be followed by a panel discussion. For more info, visit www.playmakersrep.org or call 962-7529. See article on page 34. —Megan Stein

Hang It Out to Dry
UNC CAMPUS—Two years on, it's clear that Hurricane Katrina was not only an epochal social catastrophe and a political Waterloo, but also a catalyzing cultural touchstone. Tonight through Friday in Swain Hall, Louisiana State University Ph.D. candidate Danielle Vignes will perform Hang It Out to Dry: Katrina's Spun Tales, a collection of first-person narratives she gleaned from interviews conducted in her native St. Bernard Parish. The performances begin at 8 p.m. Call 843-3333 for tickets and information. —David Fellerath
