- Antaeus Theatre Company presents What We Owe Our Lies by Juan Ruiz de Alarcón

- Independent Shakespeare Co. presents Unhappily Married in Valencia by Guillén de Castro
What happens after the happy ending? Two married couples air their disillusions with marriage, while the cross-dressed mistress of one of the husbands merrily manipulates one and all. With everyone attracted to the wrong person, innuendo, accusations, and revenge steal the show.
