Any world premiere by an Atlanta playwright deserves attention, but a triple-header may be unprecedented. The Process Theatre Company is currently running three new plays by Topher Payne in repertory, continuing Fri., APRIL 25
, for its THREE BY TOPHER PLAY FESTIVAL
: Perfect Arrangement
(right) harks back to the government "lavender scare" of the 1950s; Above the Fold
explores the stories of people on the periphery of major news events; and Don't Look at the Fat Lady
takes inspiration from the true story of a Florida woman (played by Jo Howarth) who gained so much weight she melded to her sofa. Barbara Cole Uterhardt directs the former, and Process Theatre's artistic director DeWayne Morgan directs the latter two. Through May 10. $17-$20. Thurs.-Sat., 8 p.m. Whole World Theatre, 3rd Space, 1226 Spring St. 404-245-4205. www.theprocesstheatre.org.
