“Love’s Labour’s Lost” guest production. 8 pm. Shakespeare’s Love’s Labour’s Lost is a comedy best known for its witty wordplay – the clever characters speak in puns, and less clever ones in malapropisms. Buy tickets here.

At the Clarice Center for Performing Arts in College Park

A Doll’s House from the UMD School of Theatre. Performed by an all-women cast, this production of Henrik Ibsen’s classic A Doll House questions the roles that society assigns to men and women. Set in late nineteenth-century Norway, the play follows Nora, a woman who seeks self-fulfillment and slams the door on the dollhouse that is her marriage. This fresh perspective on the classic play encourages audiences to question what has changed since 19th-century Europe through the interpretations of six women actors playing male and female characters. Thru Feb 15.
