The heatwave of 07 might be waning, but the local theatre scene is getting hot hot hot. Here are LAist’s five theater picks for this weekend:

Butterflies of Uganda: Memories of a Child Soldier
Butterflies of Uganda tells the story of Mary, who as a young Acholi girl was stolen from her home in Northern Uganda and forced to fight as a soldier in the Lord's Resistance Army. The play explores an already strained mother-daughter relationship as Mary’s daughter finds out the truth.
