Weekend Watch: ‘Handing Down the Names’
Steven Dietz had crowds laughing with “Becky’s New Car” in 2012 at Theatre B, but “Handing down the Names” is a different kind of play. The author covers seven generations of a German family struggling to survive in Russia between 1766 and 1949. The student production at Askanase Auditorium at North Dakota State University, heads into its final weekend with show times at 7:30 tonight through Saturday and a 2 p.m. matinee on Sunday. Tickets range from $5 to $20. (701) 231-7969.
