“Jailbait” by Deidre O’Connor, is running through Aug. 31 at the Bath House Cultural Center. It’s a witty play that takes place over the course of a dizzying night at a club and follows the parallel journey of two fifteen-year-old girls and two thirty-something men. When the unlikely foursome collides, they discover “surprising and dangerous compatibilities,” the website summary says. Ticket prices $10-$20. Buy tickets online.

While you’re at the Bath House, don’t forget to check out the Nature in My Art: Recent Artwork by Pavlina Panova exhibit.
