For the entire 90 minutes of the comedy Mistakes Were Made, actor David Matranga is alone onstage. He plays Felix Artifex, a producer wrapped up in working a deal involving a Hollywood star, a Broadway playwright and a problem with a truckload of sheep. He talks to other people by phone, but we never meet them and we’re left to guess (probably pretty accurately) about what’s being said to him by just hearing his side of the conversation and taking in his body language.

Director John Moletress is making his debut at Stages Repertory Theatre tackling the comedy by Craig Wright (think the TV show Six Feet Under).

This guy is trying so hard to make something happen.” 7:30 p.m. Wednesdays and Thursdays, 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and 3 p.m. Sundays. Through February 19. Stages Repertory Theatre, 3201 Allen Parkway. For information, call 713-527-0123 or visit www.stagestheatre.com. $19 to $33.
