Now – Sept. 24
Lucky Me
Sara’s having a bad week. The lightbulbs in her apartment keep burning out, there’s a leak in the roof, the aquarium is full of dead fish, the cat’s missing, and her father is suspicious of the new neighbor, a TSA agent who brings Sara home from the emergency room on New Year’s Eve. The Theater Barn presents Robert Caisley’s ball-dropping comedy. New Lebanon.

Now – Sept. 24
Back by popular demand for 12 more performances, this Creative Place International/And Theatre Company production stars Jeff McCarthy as the self-described “radical lawyer” and civil rights activist William Kunstler. The perpetually rumpled lawyer, whose best-known clients include the Chicago Seven, inmates involved in the Attica prison riots and members of the American Indian Movement, makes a case for his unconventional style in this revealing play. Barrington Stage Company, Pittsfield.

Now – Oct. 8
God of Carnage
Yasmina Reza’s Tony and Olivier Award-winning smash hit takes you into the most dangerous place on earth: parenthood. Two sets of parents meet for the first time to settle their sons’ schoolyard tangle. Tensions quickly emerge around the best way to raise a child. The meeting progresses, the liquor flows, and the gloves come off in this viciously funny comedy of bad manners. Shakespeare & Company’s Bernstein Theatre, Lenox.

September 21
Comedian Jordan Carlos
The $5 Comedy Garage at The Colonial Theatre presents Jordan Carlos, best known for his work as a writer and on-air contributor for The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore and The Colbert Report. He’s also appeared on HBO’s Girls, Showtime’s The Affair, and Comedy Central’s Broad City. Pittsfield, 7:30 p.m.

September 23 & 24
One-Night Stand (A Love Story)
Larry Zingale, whose play Kate & Bill won the 2016 Made in the Berkshires playwright contest, has written a poignant new trilogy that explores the dynamics of love across a span of time from 1918 small-town USA to 1985 New York City. It will be performed as a reading with music at the Diana Felber Gallery in West Stockbridge. 7 p.m.

Sept. 28 – Oct. 22
Tangent Theatre presents an exploration of a couple’s journey through life, as it relates to the concept of a “multi-verse” — that we exist in multiple planes with different destinies and outcomes. Carpenter Shop Theater, Tivoli.

Sept. 28 – Oct. 22
Lost Lake
Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning playwright David Auburn’s engrossing play is part drama, part melancholy comedy. It follows the story of imperfect strangers tangled up in each other’s lives by circumstance. Veronica takes her children to a lakeside rental, a less-than-ideal property that also includes Hogan, a bedraggled estate owner. Berkshire Theatre Group’s Unicorn Stage, Stockbridge.
