Two college buddies reconnect 30 years after a betrayal ended their friendship. What happens is the fodder for engaging racial drama, Evening The Score (A Double Cross in Black and White). The play, written by Magnetic Theatre artistic director Steven Samuels and directed by Stephanie Hickling Beckman, is a collaboration between that theatre company and Different Strokes! Performing Arts Collective. The goal of Different Strokes! is to "bridge the apparent racial, ethnic and cultural gaps in Western North Carolina by producing and presenting works which confront issues of social diversity." The play runs through Nov. 3. 7:30 p.m. nightly. $12 Wednesday and Thursday, $15 Friday and Saturday. http://themagneticfield.com.
