‘A DARK, DARK HOUSE'
7:30 p.m., Weekend Theater. $10-$14.

Neil LaBute loves to write about the people you hate. The dramatist, a Weekend Theater favorite, has built a career on the backs of sexual predators, misogynists and the white-collar vacuous. But within his typical men-behaving-badly framework, LaBute's plays offer a rare and unclouded glimpse into the psyche of the American male. Or at least that's the conventional, critical wisdom, and the angle the Weekend Theater is pushing in promotion of “A Dark, Dark House,” a drama that centers around two brothers, one stuck in a psych unit after a booze- and drug-fueled car crash and another visiting. Corroborating details from a shared past, the psych patient believes, is key to his release. As anyone familiar with LaBute knows, there's never anything pretty behind that door. The play continues through Nov. 21.
