THE TRIAL OF TRAYVON MARTIN: Gary Earl Ross’s new play supposes that George Zimmerman, not Trayvon Martin, was the one killed that fateful Florida night. How would a black teenager have been treated by the US criminal justice system? The seventh installment in Subversive Theatre Collective’s Black Power Play series continues through May 6 at the Manny Fried Playhouse, Great Arrow Building, 255 Great Arrow Avenue, 716-408-0499, subversivetheatre.org.

THE WINSLOW BOY: Terrence Rattigan’s 1946 play—based on an actual incident in which a father struggles to clear the name of his teenage son falsely accused of a seemingly paltry but reputation-damaging crime—has great currency in an era when youthful foibles are made indelible by social media. The Irish Classical’s production runs through May 14 at the Andrews Theater, 625 Main Street, 726-853-ICTC, irishclassical.com.
