THEATER
The Actors Gang presents The Trial of the Catonsville Nine tonight at 8 pm. The play brings to life the 1968 trial of two Catholic priests and seven other activists who committed an act of civil disobedience to protest the Vietnam War. “The play presents a moral imperative to commit civil disobedience when national hubris and global corporate interests act against the welfare of the nation and the well-being of the international community.” The production runs through Sunday, where the matinee performance will be followed by a gala reception hosted by actor Tim Robbins and United Talent Agency. Tickets for tonight’s show are $25; gala tickets for the Sunday show are $250 ($200 is tax-deductible).

MORE THEATER
Gaslight, the classic Victorian thriller, opens tonight at Theatre West. Mr. Manningham is slowly torturing his wife into insanity. A police inspector convinces Mrs. Manningham that her hubby isn’t all that he appears to be. The game of cat-and-mouse begins. All seats are $27 tonight (includes opening reception). The play runs through Sept. 27.
