How the Other Half Loves
Charlotte Players present “How the Other Half Loves.” There are three couples in this play, the men all working for the same firm. One of the younger men is having an affair with the wife of the oldest, and when each returns home suspiciously late one night or early one morning, they invent a story about having to spend some time smoothing domestic matters in the home of the third couple. Of course, the third couple show up to put the fat in the fire, but that complication only adds to the fun of this famous farce. The play runs Thursday, February 9 through Sunday, February 26, with evening curtain times at 7:30pm and matinees at 2pm. Tickets are $25 adult and $13 student. Purchase tickets online at www.charlotteplayers.org. Langdon Playhouse is located at 1182 Market Circle in Pt. Charlotte.

The Creative Language of Accessibility
From alternative text to technological advancements and beyond, artists across all mediums are elevating solutions designed to provide accessibility for all to the realm of beautiful artistry. Join two cutting-edge thinkers and practitioners in this field: Hermitage Fellows Shannon Finnegan and Chella Man on Friday, February 10 at 5:30pm at the Hermitage Palm House, 6630 Manasota Key Road. Both multidisciplinary artists defy genre and call attention to facets of daily life unexamined by many through their visual, performative, film, and written works. Shannon Finnegan explores how “Alt Text,” a tool designed to improve internet accessibility, can become poetry, and Chella Man shares his experiences directing, writing, and co-producing “The Device That Turned Me into A Cyborg Was Born The Same Year I Was.” Come see, hear, and connect with what you might be missing as these creators share work and insight.
