Playwright Sharr White’s The Other Place reminds us of the uncertainties of life. We aren’t promised good health and fortune, and sometimes things aren’t what they seem. That’s the case in this drama, whose protagonist (and sometimes antagonist) Juliana Smithton suffers from illness and a family gone awry. Smithton is a neurologist in the midst of a divorce. On top of a marriage in shambles, she has trouble communicating with her daughter, who ran off with an older man, and her own health seems to be deteriorating. But there’s more to this story and we’re forced to do some emotional digging. This production premieres at CAST, and stars Marla Brown, Jeff Johnston, Frances Bendert and Jeffrey Woodard.

Price: $18-$28; $30-$40 for Jan. 8 performance with a Q&A with Matt Olin and complimentary desserts and coffee
