An actor always wants the spotlight, and in award-winning local playwright Yussef El Guindi's latest show, Collaborator, the protagonist has it all to herself. The one-woman show centers on Cass (Hayley Guthrie), an anxious actress that welcomes the audience into her bed in order to ruminate on isolation and intimacy while sharing stories of her past relationships with men. As she reflects upon her own need for attention, it becomes clear to her (and the audience) that there is an unknown presence—a collaborator—making this all possible. West of Lenin, $18

“I know the risks of living alone at my age…. I could hit my head on a bathtub, and then three days later they find me and a cat has eaten my face. I understand. I don’t even have a cat, but when a single woman dies alone, a cat appears. It’s in the Bible.”  —Jen Kirkman. The comedian who revels in uncomfortable truths heads to the Neptune in support of her new comedic memoir I Know What I'm Doing–and Other Lies I Tell Myself. The show will combine standup, storytelling, readings, a Q&A, and a book signing. Neptune Theatre, $19–$24
