THURSDAY, JAN. 28–SUNDAY, FEB. 14

Airplanes are always coming from somewhere. Oddly, many of those used in the Bush administration's extraordinary rendition program, which abducted suspected terrorists without due process for "enhanced interrogation" overseas, came from North Carolina airstrips in Johnston and Lenoir counties. In British playwright Clare Bayley's "often gripping and always intelligent" drama (The Guardian), Jane's a journalist returning to her small English hometown, which has a similarly obscure airstrip, in 2003. She's on the trail of a story her newspaper refuses to investigate. Was England, despite official denials, allowing "torture taxis" to land, refuel and depart from British soil? What agendas—and unfinished business—will arise when she enlists an old family friend and his political activist daughter to help her prove it? Gus Heagerty directs Shannon Malone, John Allore, Mya Ison and Rimsha Afzal in the U.S. premiere of this "mordant meditation on justice, journalism and individual political engagement" (The Telegraph), co-produced by Burning Coal Theatre Company and CAM Raleigh. 7:30 p.m. Thurs.Sat.; 2 p.m. Sun.; 10 p.m. Feb. 5, $15$25, 409 W. Martin St., Raleigh, 919-834-4001, www.burningcoal.org. —Byron Woods
