1. If you don’t have the attention span for a three-act play: How about watching seven, 10-minute plays? It’s Show-off at the Camino Real Playhouse, a playwright’s festival where you get to select the winner. 8 p.m. They’ve got some interesting titles, including “Hamlet: It’s a Wonderful Life” (a smashup of the classics?) and “Repo Man vs. Pangea Girl.” Sounds supercontinental. The festival runs Friday through Jan. 12. See here for ticket pricing.
