Local Theater: Catch ‘Heroes,’ ‘Sex,’ ‘Steel Magnolias’ This Weekend

Three East End theater companies are staging plays this weekend—and two productions will end their runs this Sunday.

The world premiere of Sex: What She’s Really Thinking, by Ilene Beckerman with Michael Disher, wraps up at the Southampton Cultural Center. The comedy is a rapid-paced series of short vignettes concerning love and sex—from a women’s perspective. Read more about this original play.

Meanwhile, in Quogue, the Hampton Theatre Company has its final weekend of Heroes, directed by Andrew Botsford.
