Although they're polar opposites, two condemned inmates make a profound connection from their side-by-side cells in "Coyote on a Fence". This drama from playwright Bruce Graham explores the nature of evil and the implications of the death penalty through a provocative piece of entertainment inspired by true events. Prisoner John is an educated man and the editor of "The Death Row Advocate". He sees his killing of a known drug dealer as justified -- as does the simple-minded, psychotic Bobby, who committed a racist mass murder. But their unfolding relationship reveals a deeper moral complexity that provokes thought and challenges long-held assumptions. This production of "Coyote on a Fence" comes to the First Church in Boston courtesy of Hub Theatre Company of Boston. Donations of new and gently loved children's books will be collected at each performance for local charities. [less-]

Fans of "Drunk History" and all its slurred education will fall over laughing at Sh*t-Faced Shakespeare, where an entirely serious Shakespeare play is performed with one entirely inebriated cast member. For the last six years, Sh*t-Faced Shakespeare has been performed in the darkest corners and diviest bars in the UK, and the cast is now bringing the good time to Boston. Side-splitting, raucous and completely interactive, the show is fresh off sell-out runs at the Edinburgh and Brighton Fringe festivals, where a cast member drinks beer, wine and whiskey on stage, drunkenly sings the "Dawson's Creek" theme song and occasionally (accidentally, of course) bares a nipple or two. Brush up on your Bard knowledge, and head over to Somerville's Davis Square Theatre for a drunken twist on "Romeo and Juliet", because this is Shakespeare as you never knew you wanted to see him before.
