March 31-April 2: This hilarious and heartrending new play comes from a multi-award-winning writer and director, Kieron Barry, just four performances before its London premiere. “Spy for Spy, love, shuffled” at NAMBA Performing Arts Space, 47 S Oak St. Spy for Spy asks if our lives make more sense in the wrong order and if love is enough to fuse two radically different spirits. Spy for Spy is a romantic comedy with a difference; a drama performed like a playlist with scenes shuffled in random order. Funny, moving, and profound, Spy for Spy explores the limits of the body, the weight of the soul, and the burden of love. Tickets are $30/$25 for students and seniors and can be bought online at www.NambaArts.com or at the door on the performance day.

The program provides resources to help homeowners learn how to adapt to living with wildfire and encourages neighbors to work together to act now to prevent losses.” (VRFSC, Feb 2023).
