A LONELY ROAD
In 1998, playwright Paula Vogel was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Drama for How I Learned to Drive. And the play is not for the faint of heart. Protagonist Li’l Bit endures years of abuse at the hands of her family, finding her only sense of power when her hands are on the wheel. See it at Onyx Theatre Nov. 14-23. OnyxTheatre.com.
Photographer Geoffrey Ellis’ This Must Be the Place is an imaginative ode to the conflict and contradictions that thrive in Las Vegas. He describes his depiction of our city as “a place that is as seductive as it is repellent.” Picture money engulfed in flames and a battered Cadillac … or see it for yourself through Nov. 29 at Brett Wesley Gallery.

Opera ain’t the easiest to understand, but it helps when a familiar tale is being told. UNLV Opera Theatre presents the classic Little Red Riding Hood and The Bewitched Child (a whimsical French fantasy) Nov. 13-15 at Paul Harris Theatre. Bring the kids. UNLV.edu.
ON THE HUNT
Having previously staged only free readings, A Public Fit Theatre Company presents its first full (and crowd-funded) production, Foxfinder, Nov. 13-22 at Art Square Theatre. In a January write-up, the Los Angeles Times explained the drama as “the witch-hunting of The Crucible at the hands of a modern Orwellian state.” We’re intrigued. Facebook.com/APublicFit.
