Dark Comedy Comes To Lark Theater

Catch the National Theater's production of 'The Last of the Haussmans;' Test your science knowledge; and more.

Here are some of the highlights happening around the Larkspur and Corte Madera Twin Cities area Oct. 10-11:

The only thing to be in life is a rebel. That's what it means to be The Last of the Haussmans. The National Theater London's production of the new comedic play by Stephen Beresford will be simulcast at The Lark Theater on Thursday at 7 p.m. Tickets are $30.

Julie Walters plays Judy Haussman with Rory Kinnear and Helen McCrory as her children in this eagerly-anticipated new play: a funny, touching and sometimes savage portrait of a family that’s losing its grip.
