Eight Great Things To Do This Weekend – 3/12/20
ONE: “The Moors” is a darkly comedic mash-up of Beckett, Bronte and Lizzie Borden. Enter into the quirky, upside-down world of two spinster sisters, their eccentric maid, and a philosophical talking dog who dream of love and power in an isolated estate on the English heath.
“The Moors” opens at Greater Boston Stage Company today, and it will run through March 29. You can see a full listing of showtimes at GreaterBostonStage.org.
TWO: Maxine Farkas is a mixed-media artist, community organizer and independent curator who was trained as an historical geographer. She has been exhibiting work in a number of different media since 1994, and through the years, her work has been shown in England, France, Japan and in numerous venues around the United States.
A reception for Farkas’ exhibit “The Latin Dictionary Series — Evolution” will be held at the Greater Lowell Community Foundation today from 5 to 7 p.m. Can’t make it? No problem. Farkas’s exhibit will be featured at the gallery through April 10.
