Nicole A. Watson’s A Doll’s House, Part 1 ends with protagonist Norma Helma leaving her husband Torvald by the slam of a door.

Blackbeard @ Signature Theatre
Jun 18 all-day
Blackbeard @ Signature Theatre

Blackbeard takes a look at English pirate Edward Thatch, who navigated by ship in the West Indies and North American colonies. The production staged entirely on a pirate ship begins with Blackbeard learning he’s a wanted man by the British army. But perhaps Signature Theatre’s website sums up the new production best: “Blackbeard and his crew of maritime marauders embark on a fantastical journey across the globe to raise an undead pirate army from the depths of the sea.” Various dates and times. Various prices. Signature Theatre: 4200 Campbell Ave. Arlington, VA; www.sigtheatre.org
