7/31: Jack Goes Boating at Sometimes in the Silence Theatre

Bob Glaudini’s play Jack Goes Boating is a gentle treatment of likeable regular people dealing with subjects that typically take the Bang and the Clatter Theatre down unsettling roads: date panic, marital meltdown and betrayal. But in this story of lower-middle class stoners, the human spirit ultimately wins out. The Bang and the Clatter opens its production at 8 tonight, with performances through August 22, at the Sometimes in the Silence Theater (224 Euclid Ave., 330.606.5317). Tickets: $15. — Michael Gill
