One Night of Absolute Dismay 

When: Feb. 16-26 2012
Phone: 919-386-9571
Price: $10-17

No, it's not exactly "truth-in-advertising night" for Bare Theatre's new production. Each year, these theatrical minimalists manage to come up with an even more improbable name for their showcase of mostly comic one-acts.

This year's installment veers from Christopher Durang's woozy For Whom the Southern Belle Tolls, a tart, gender-torqued homage to Tennessee Williams, to, well, Hot Greek Porn, an episodic team-up by locals Lucius Robinson and Rajeev Rajendran that's somehow based on the European economic crisis—and the career of Kostas Gousgounis, a justifiably obscure Greek porn idol from the 1970s.

In between? Everything Seems So Plausible at 1 A.M., which reminds budding law students never to give legal advice after midnight, and a work in which conservative religious faith—and a few other things—are put to the acid test, Letter From the Editor.

What price Dismay? Call it $10–$17. Performances are Thursdays–Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m. through Feb. 26. —Byron Woods
