Pear discharges 'Major' this weekend

This is the last weekend to catch the Pear Theatre production of George Bernard Shaw’s “Major Barbara,” a look at human nature, religion and social engineering.

Briana Mitchell plays title character Major Barbara, described as a selfless, strong woman who has joined the Salvation Army with a desire to serve the downtrodden and save men’s souls from wickedness. She is also the daughter of wealthy military industrialist Andrew Undershaft, played by Todd Wright, whose business of munitions provides him the opportunity to employ many of those same downtrodden and allow them a chance to support themselves.

LA Stage Co. goes full 'Circle' with latest play, opening Friday

Los Altos Stage Company continues its 2016-2017 season with Annie Baker’s “Circle Mirror Transformation,” slated to open Friday – with a preview performance Thursday – and run through Dec. 11 at Bus Barn Theater, 97 Hillview Ave., Los Altos.

Winner of the 2010 Obie Award for Best New American Play, “Transformation” traces the journey of five New Englanders as they make their way through a six-week-long acting class in a small Vermont town. Couched in the language of harmless theater games, hearts are quietly torn apart, and tiny wars of epic proportions are waged and won.

A portrayal of life in a small New Hampshire town as a microcosm for universal truths, the play opened on Broadway to rave reviews in 1938.
