Black Sheep Theatre, this weekend and next, will present a program of one-acts that focus on women and the universal stories they share. "More Than a Rib" will include three works by Jane Shepard — "Commencing," about a blind date between a straight woman and a lesbian; "Friends of the Deceased," which follows a widow who waits at her husband's grave in order to catch his mistress; and "The Last Nickel," a play about two sisters — and a piece by local playwright Mary Megan. In "Me, Mom ... And Elaine," a daughter returns home to face "moments that transfixed and transformed her life." "More Than a Rib" is directed by Kristy Angevine-Funderburk and Colleen DiVincenzo.
"More Than a Rib" will take place Friday, April 8, through Saturday, April 16, at Black Sheep Theatre, 274 North Goodman Street (Village Gate, D313). 7:30 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays; 2 p.m. on Sunday, April 10. $16-$20. 861-4816; blacksheeptheatre.org.
