Last weekend, the noted Bruce Norris play, "The Pain and the Itch" opened at the Boston Court in Pasadena, earning the Critic's Pick nod from Back Stage. "This astutely designed and intelligently rendered production is a shared feather in the cap for two of L.A.'s most adventurous theater companies," wrote Les Spindle of the Furious Theatre Company's production.

The satire described: "A young daughter is in serious need of attention while her parents worry if the milk is organic. A ravenous creature may be prowling the upstairs bedrooms. And an average Thanksgiving for this family unravels into an exposé of disastrous choices and less-than-altruistic motives. The Pain and the Itch is a scathing comedy about the politics of class and race, a controversial examination of denial and its consequences."

And because we all need a laugh, even under dramatic circumstances, LAist is giving away a pair of tickets to this Saturday night's show and to the show next week Friday (you can also buy tickets here if you need them stat, use the code "LAIST" for $5 off). To enter, comment below with your favorite summer activity so far. We're partial to kayaking the Channel Islands, but we know you've had adventures you need to share with us. Was it a certain concert, a hike, a vacation?
