Since Le Chat Noir put together The Beignet Plays, an evening of original short works by local writers, the approach has caught on, also notably in a program at the Alamo Underground called The Root [Cel.lar]. There's no common theme here, but Potluck features new pieces by Jim Fitzmorris, R.J. Tsarov, Gabrielle Reisman, Jennifer Pagan and Billy Shultz and others. Tickets $7.
