GO

Age of Chivalry Renaissance Festival Knights of Mayhem, a bawdy juggler, gypsy time travelers and fire-wielding belly dancers? That’s just tickling the surface of the Ren Fest, which promises meat pies, beer wenches and a safe space to nerd out. Hard. October 10-12, times vary, $13, Sunset Park.

No Exit Observe three damned souls spend eternity in the depths of hell—not a fiery, torturous lair, but a room with one another another. As Jean-Paul Sartre’s famously wrote in his existentialist play sent to the stage by Cockroach Theatre, “Hell is other people.” Through October 26, times vary, $16-$20, Art Square Theatre.

Huntridge Theatre 70th Anniversary Celebration The Huntridge Foundation toasts to the Downtown building with a 1940s-themed shindig that aims to help fund its historical preservation.
