Conjugal Visit

Herberger Lunch Time Theater’s 2013-14 opener is M Is for Marriage, a lively collection of courtship and coupling scenes from the plays of William Shakespeare. It’s part of a series called Alphabet Shakespeare, which has included Q Is for Queen and, if we’re lucky, will eventually bring us D Is for Dirty Jokes We No Longer Get, C Is for Codpieces, and R Is for Regicide. (A person can dream.)

Alphabet Shakespeare’s the creation of Pandanda Players, a troupe that might be named for a discontinued multiplayer online game. And that’s totally okay -- local theater needs more happy pandas. Round out your relationship skills at 12:10 p.m. Wednesday, October 2 (or Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday through October 10), in the Kax Stage on the Van Buren Street side of 222 East Monroe Street. Admission is $6. For details, including advance tickets and lunch information, visit or call 602-252-8497.

Tuesdays-Thursdays, 12:10 p.m. Starts: Oct. 1. Continues through Oct. 10, 2013
