Written by the poet David Wagoner, performed by the actor John Aylward, and about the great American poet Theodore Roethke, First Class is a one-man play that, in essence, is an examination of the substance, mechanics, and spirit of poetry. If you have a mind, then bring it to this play. (ACT Theatre, 700 Union St, 292-7676. 7:30 pm, $50.)
