Chewed Bread

When: June 9-12 2011

My dad explains away our differences by joking that the mailman is my real father, but sometimes the humorous attempts to shed biological responsibility do make me wonder. Anyway, if likewise you've ever felt like the family misfit, then tonight's performance of Chewed Bread could be your slice of, well, bread. Starting at 7, writers and performers Nisa Ari and Paz Pardo play two sisters who, in the aftermath of their father's death, sort through how his teachings shaped their differences. The play also incorporates an unscientific look at the placebo effect, and shows through June 12 at the Manitou Art Theatre (1367 Pecan St., themat.org). Tickets are $10.50 in advance, or $12 at the door. — Jenny Rackl
