'GOOD BOYS AND TRUE'
7:30 p.m., The Weekend Theater. $14

The Weekend Theater is set to close out its 2010-2011 season with a blunt look at sex, shock and controversy. Think Paris Hilton, Pam Anderson/Tommy Lee, Screech and, the O.G., Rob Lowe. Yep: it's sex tape time on 7th and Chester. Penned by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa (staff writer for HBO's "Big Love," now patching up the whole "Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark" wreck), the drama follows a prep-school hullabaloo that arises in the wake of someone discovering a tape that shows the high school Adonis getting rough with an undisclosed girl. Arguments, controversies, hypocrisies and taboos rise to the surface. Think "Tape," "Another Country," Neil LaBute and Todd Solondz.

The play runs Fridays and Saturdays through May 21.
