Theatre Britain counts bodies until ‘There Were None’
Last year, Theatre Britain had a rousing success with its production of the record-setting Agatha Christie mystery The Mousetrap. Well, they know a good thing when they see it — they’ve returned to the works of Dame Ag with what is probably her second-best-known stage show, And Then There Were None (sometimes known as Ten Little Indians). Which of the guests on this island is a murderer — and who will be the victim(s) … and why? Opening night is Friday, but it runs ’til March 22.

‘Rock star’ cellist Maya Beiser performs with Wilco drummer
Maya Beiser plays the cello, but to simply call her a “cellist” is to understate what her elegant but spirited playing demonstrates. She has rock-star charisma — indeed, the drummer for her sets this weekend will be Glenn Kotche from the band Wilco — who has arranged and performed pieces not just from the likes of Vivaldi, but also Led Zeppelin and Nirvana. She’s presented by TITAS for two shows this weekend.

North Texas Irish Festival kicks off 33rd year
The Irish are used to cold, wet climates — that’s most of the reason they dance and drink whiskey and Guinness … to stay warm! So you will be in good company this weekend with the North Texas Irish Festival, which returns to Fair Park for a few days of bagpipes, face-painting, dogs in green neckerchiefs
and whiskey tastings. It’s also good practice for
St. Patrick’s Day next week.
Fair Park, Martin Luther King Boulevard and First Avenue.
Cost runs from free from 6.–7 p.m.
Friday to a weekend-long pass for $30.
