Culture Shock

Undue Process—In Chris Tugwell's X-Ray, an Australian man is imprisoned for three years without charge, and no one, including the man himself, has any idea what crime he might have committed. X-Ray is based on a true story. The American premiere of Tugwell's play occurs right here in Albuquerque at Gorilla Tango (519 Central NW). The show runs Fridays and Saturdays at 7 p.m. through Nov. 19. $10. Tickets can be purchased at the door or online at gorillatango.com. 245-8600.

“Delicate” by Cheryl Dietz

Gallery Review

Mother Nature's Daughters

Cheryl Dietz and Shawn Turung at the Harwood Art Center

Flying over the Midwest is like flying over some kind of exotic earth-toned board game. The roads all run north-south and east-west at precise right angles. In the spaces in between, every spare inch of soil seems to have been transformed into perfectly rectangular plots of farmland.

Tickets are $19, $22 and $25. Order by calling 925-5858 or going to www.unmtickets.com.

John Berendt

Author Interview

An American in Venice

John Berendt returns with a long-awaited follow-up to Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil

Several years ago, Publisher's Weekly reported that John Berendt had single-handedly boosted tourism in Savannah, Ga., by 46 percent, all thanks to his 1994 blockbuster, Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil.
