A Small Fire

Portland Center Stage presents Adam Bock’s portrait of a happy, middle-class couple whose lives are upended when one of them is overcome by a mysterious disease and is suddenly and completely dependent on the spouse, whose endless devotions have always been taken for granted. “The play is raucous, funny and unexpectedly touching,” declared the New York Times, calling it “a frank demonstration of how much of life, of love and of happiness remain within reach even when so much appears to be lost.” Performances through March 23. Tickets at PCS.
