SEPTEMBER 1 & 2
Impossible Industrial Action Theater, Baltimore’s fringiest troupe, brings Arlington a free stage version of I Married a Fly, the ultimate atomic-era fantasy: mild-mannered scientist exposed to radiation in the lab mutates into creature that’s half-man, half-fly. Though Fly Guy and his wife try to pretend nothing’s changed, his compound eyes and antennae and his habit of bringing up world domination at the dinner table slowly take their toll on the relationship. The show is both a spoof of B-movies and a satirical take on contemporary philosophical thought. It’s also the final Lubber Run Amphitheater attraction in the 1995 Arlington “Arts al Fresco” festival. At 8:30 p.m. Friday & Saturday at the Lubber Run Amphitheater, N. 2nd. & Columbus Sts., Arlington. FREE. (703) 358-6960. (Bob Mondello)
