Shel Silverstein is well known for his every-family-has-a-copy children's book, "The Giving Tree," but the man had an incredible career as a poet, cartoonist, singer-songwriter — he wrote Johnny Cash's "A Boy Named Sue" — and a playwright. Starting this Friday, SuperEgo Studios will present 10 of Silverstein's more adult one-act plays in "Signs of Trouble: A Collection of Adult Only Comedies by Shel Seilverstein" at MuCCC (142 Atlantic Avenue). Directed by Zach Stasz and produced by Elliott Pruitt, "Signs of Trouble" will feature a cast of seven actors rotating through the one-acts that "got it all, from down on their luck sign salesmen, to dogs masquerading as hustbands."
"Signs of Trouble" will run Friday, October 2, through Sunday, October 4, and again on Thursday, October 8, through Sunday, October 11, at MuCCC. 8 p.m. on Thursday, Fridays, and Saturdays; 1 p.m. on Sundays. $15-$20. muccc.org.
