Coming up

"Indian Ink." Austin Shakespeare produces the captivating story of a rebellious English poet who gets her portrait painted by a mysterious local artist while traveling in India. The Tom Stoppard play jumps from the 1930s to the 1980s, as the poet's now younger sister tries to solve the portrait's mystery. You may notice that throughout the play, Stoppard wiggles in a comic spoof of 20th-century academic literary scholarship. Opens Feb. 15. 7:30 p.m. Thursday-Saturday, 3 p.m. Sunday, with additional performance 7:30 p.m. Feb. 27, through March 3. The Long Center, 701 W. Riverside Drive. thelongcenter.org
