Sleuth

Payback is a bitch — just ask the twisted characters of Sleuth, currently in production at Theater Southwest. When a beautiful woman’s older husband and younger lover meet, the two men play a deadly game of one-upmanship. Filled with threats and psychological intimidation masked by sophisticated, witty repartee, Sleuth takes the audience on a theatrical ride filled with surprising twists, turns and detours, all of it leading to a shocking climax. 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays. Through November 15. 8944-A Clarkcrest. For information, call 713-661-9505 or visit www.theatresouthwest.org. $13 to $15.
Fridays, Saturdays, 8 p.m.; Sundays, 3 p.m. Starts: Oct. 24. Continues through Nov. 15, 2008
