For those who like a quick shot of drama, one-act plays could be your scene. This weekend, the 28th Playwrights' Forum Festival continues at the Spokane Civic Theatre, highlighting eight one-act productions from seven regional playwrights. The titles here are especially creative — The Tragic Tale of a Man Who Fell in Love (with a bookcase) and Zoloft Tango — and they’ll compete for the Festival Adjudicator Award and Audience Choice Award. Four plays are shown each night, switching off.
Thu-Sat, June 9-11, at 7:30 pm; Sun, June 12, at 2 pm • $15 • Spokane Civic Theatre • 1020 N. Howard • spokanecivictheatre.com • 325-2507
