The Underpants, by Theater BSMT
Theatre BSMT takes us back in time this weekend, with a play called "The Underpants." It’s based on a German farce, originally written in 1910, by playwright Carl Sternheim. A few years ago, comedian Steve Martin took the German play, and adapted it for English audiences. Now Theatre BSMT has taken the Steve Martin version and added a few Calgary touches to make it their own.

Jack Goes Boating, by Sage Theater
If you're looking for something a little more contemporary, Sage Theatre is presenting "Jack Goes Boating" this weekend. It's described as a tale of love, betrayal, friendship and grace — about the intertwined love lives of four lower-class New Yorkers. The play has been made into a feature film starring Philip Seymour Hoffman, and now, you'll be able to see it on the Calgary stage, at the Pumphouse Theatre.
