With the theater season in full swing, here are some options that may be less obvious:

Farmers and artists will perform an original play about local agriculture and the future of small family farms Thursday through Oct. 30 at Camp Ketcha, 336 Black Point Road, Scarborough.

Created by Jennie Hahn of Thomaston, “Of Farms and Fables” is a project of Open Waters Theatre Arts, an organization that uses professional and non-professional artists to promote communication and cultural exchange via theatrical productions.

“Of Farms and Fables” started as a discussion with Jordan’s Farm in Cape Elizabeth, and grew to include Broadturn Farm in Scarborough and Benson Farm in Gorham. It focuses on the complexities of running a small business and the theme of farm transfer.

A preview performance is scheduled for 7 p.m. Thursday, and regular performances will be at 7 p.m. Friday, 2 and 7 p.m. Saturday, and 2 p.m. Oct. 30. Tickets cost $15 or pay what you can. Call 883-8977 or visit campketcha.com.

The Originals present Harold Pinter’s “Betrayal” at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 4-5 and Nov. 10-12 at Saco River Grange Hall, 29 Salmon Falls Road, Bar Mills.

“Betrayal” exposes the painful truth that love sometimes causes us to betray not only those we care about, but also ourselves. It features Jennifer Porter, Dana Packard and Rob Cameron. Tickets cost $15 and $18. Call 929-5412.

The University of Southern Maine Department of Theatre presents “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,” an original theater piece directed by William Kilroy with a student cast. The 1999 murder of a U.S. Army private by a fellow soldier ignited the debate over the recently repealed don’t-ask-don’t-tell policy. This original production is based on personal testimony, and articulates a question for which there may be no easy answers.

Performances are at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 10-11, 2 and 7:30 p.m. Nov. 12, and 5 p.m. Nov. 13. Tickets cost $5 to $15. Call 780-5151 or visit usm.maine.edu/theatre.
