Rehearsal scene from ” You Got Older” with Allison McCall and David Timm.

‘You Got Older’
7:30 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday, 5 p.m. Sunday. Through Oct. 31. Mad Horse Theatre Company, 24 Mosher St., South Portland, pay what you want. madhorse.com
If you like well-written dark comedy, you’ll love “You Got Older,” by Clare Barron. Directed by Reba Askari, the play centers on the character of Mae who has been handed more than her fair share of lemons. Just when she thinks she’s hit rock bottom, her father falls down with a rare, merciless form of cancer. Coming-of-age themes are in sharp focus as sexual desire, fantasy cowboys, high school boyfriends and family dynamics intersect in an emotional but often hilarious journey.

‘Nunsense’
7 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday, 2 p.m. Sunday. The Grand, 165 Main St., Ellsworth, $22, $15 students 17 and under. grandonline.org PLEASE NOTE: Due due to a Covid-19 exposure, “Nunsense” has been canceled.  All ticket holders will be issued refunds.
You won’t be able to make a habit out of seeing the side-splitting comedy “Nunsense” as its run in Ellsworth is fairly short. You will love every minute of the spoof featuring a quintet of nuns trying to run a fundraiser after the rest of the sisterhood met their maker from botulism, thanks to vichyssoise prepared by Sister Julia Child of God. The survivors are ballet-loving Sister Leo, street-wise Sister Robert Anne, befuddled Sister Mary Amnesia, the Mother Superior Sister Regina and mistress of the novices Sister Mary Hubert. Have mercy on them!
