Ahhhh November. The month that ushers in the sugarfest that is commonly referred to as “The Holidays”. This week I have sweets on the brain and have curated three plays that have some sweet related thing about them. The first is Edward II at the Blackfriars in Staunton. King Ed has an obsession similar to a sugar addiction which ruins his reign. Then aptly titled, The Sugar at Live Arts in Charlottesville, is all about a woman trying to kick the glucose habit just when her world seems to be falling to pieces. Lastly but definitely not least, Clay Chapman brings his Pumpkin Pie Show to Richmond.

The Pumpkin Pie Show:
So get your sweets fix without the calories this week and have a cultured good time.
All the best,
The Culture Maven
