Max and Louie Productions presents Nicky Silver's The Lyons Wednesdays through Friday at 8 PM, Saturday at 2 and 8 PM, and Sunday at 2 PM. “The Lyons is about a family grappling with the impending death of its patriarch. When Ben Lyons' wife, Rita, and their grown children gather to say goodbye, they learn that despite being a family, each of them is utterly isolated. Afraid of closeness and afraid of solitude, they are propelled into foreign territory - human connection.” Performances take place at COCA, 524 Trinity in University City.

Slightly Askew Theatre Ensemble presents Nine by Jane Shepard and Sketch by Leverage Dance Theater Wednesday through Saturday at 8 and Friday and Saturday at 10. "Nine by Jane Shepard: Two women held in a life-threatening situation and the mind games they play to keep one another alive. Held in a room and chained apart, their only currency is words, and balance of power is everything when a single word becomes the hanging point between life and death. Sketch: Physical Theater meets Dance in a new piece by Hannah Fischer of Leverage Dance Theater, exploring fragmentation and time-lapse through a series of duets." Performances take place at The Chapel Venue, 6238 Alexander Drive. For more information:
