DAYTIME DRAMA: OK, we know this is a space for things you're doing tonight, but if you've got some time during the day, head on down to Fairfield. The Fairfield Theatre Company-StageOne, is offering Play with your Food, an afternoon of three original one-act plays by local playwrights. The shows include a play that takes a skewed look at a mother-daughter relationship, a play written entirely in verse and a play that addresses questions about behaving like a grown up. And it's not just the drama on the menu. Guests will also get to enjoy lunch from Spic & Span Market with the price of admission. Tickets are $42. Doors open at 11:30 a.m.
