Pear Theatre's production of 'August' opens in June in Mtn. View

The Pear Theatre completes its 14th season with “August: Osage County,” scheduled to open Friday and run through July 10 at Pear Theatre’s new space at 1110 La Avenida St., Mountain View.

Tracy Letts’ dark comedy won a Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize in 2008. It is about an American family in which secrets and lies spill out over dysfunctional dinners and drug-laced arguments – nothing is sacred or safe.


PA Players' 'Vanya' concludes Sunday

Palo Alto Players is slated to perform Christopher Durang’s “Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike” through Sunday at the Lucie Stern Theatre, 1305 Middlefield Road.

The play centers on Vanya and his stepsister Sonia, who live together in the countryside and receive a surprise visit from Masha, their movie star sister. Masha brings her younger “boy-toy” Spike, and the household falls into chaos as insecurity, love and sibling rivalry take over.

Bye, bye 'Bat'

Susan Greenhill and Mark Anderson Phillips star in “The Velocity of Autumn.”

TheatreWorks’ regional premiere of “The Velocity of Autumn” is slated to close Sunday at the Mountain View Center for the Performing Arts, 500 Castro St.

Written by Eric Coble, the play centers on Alexandra (Susan Greenhill), an octogenarian artist who barricades herself in her Brooklyn brownstone, booby-trapped with enough homemade bombs to take out the neighborhood. In a wry, spirited quest to “not go gentle” into a retirement home, she battles both the fears of her family and the ravages of time, negotiating the terms of her future with long-estranged son Chris (Mark Anderson Phillips), who is battling his own problems.
