Saturn Returns The Short List (Theater) Image Closing (Theater and Galleries)

When: Thursdays-Saturdays. Continues through Nov. 19 2016

As any astrology neophyte knows, each time Saturn returns to the orbital position it occupied the day you were born (approximately every 29 years), your life falls apart, and if you embrace the upheaval, you may emerge a new, more resilient person. In her new confessional disquisition about love, loss, loneliness, Tif Henderson explains the Saturn return as though it were obscure esoterica (ditto the concepts of determinism and free will). Henderson and her wholly likable cast of four playfully and poetically excavate the chaos in their lives, as well as their efforts to find belief systems to keep them anchored. It's consistently entertaining and intermittently insightful, but its tangential structure, with new performance conventions arising every few minutes, renders it largely incoherent. —Justin Hayford

Price: $25, $9.99 students and seniors; pay what you can at the door on Thursdays
