Everyone Loves a Good Tsunami

When disaster strikes, there are the victims, and then there are all those well-meaning do-gooders who want to help those victims. Sujit Saraf's Everyone Loves a Good Tsunami, presented here by Shunya Theatre, a Houston group devoted to providing a theatrical voice for the South Asian-American experience, tackles the latter with humor and wit. Saraf's farce focuses on nonprofit organizations in Silicon Valley who compete for the most face time in the media as each tries to sound more benevolent than the next. Soon enough, the well-intended find their good intentions have turned into ugly infighting. Disasters will never look the same after this. 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays; 3 p.m. Sundays. Through April 12. Barnevelder Movement Arts, 2201 Preston. For information, call 713-529-1819 or visit www.shunyatheatre.org. $18.
Fridays-Sundays, 8 p.m. Starts: April 3. Continues through April 12, 2009
