Jack and the Giant Beanstalk

This new take on the classic tale finds Jack, the son of a farmer, surrounded by land that just won’t grow. It’s an interactive play that is fun for the whole family.
Young People’s Theatre, 165 Front St. E., 416-862-2222. To April 21.


Clybourne Park

Bruce Norris’ wicked comedy about race and real estate over two generations in suburban Chicago won the 2011 Pulitzer Prize for drama. Thespians will notice its Raisin in the Sun similarities, which inspired the play.
Berkeley Street Theatre, 26 Berkeley St., 416-368-3110. To April 28.


The Duck Variations

Two friends spend time together watching ducks, while talking about life, aging and death. And since it’s a David Mamet play, you can bet on some cursing, too.
Red Sandcastle Theatre, 922 Queen St. E., 416-845-9411. April 5-14.


I Love You Because

An uptight man meets a flighty woman (naturally) in this modern musical twist based on Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice. Quirky love songs ensue.
Toronto Centre for the Arts, Studio Theatre, 5040 Yonge St., 416-872-1111. To April 15.


Was Spring

In Daniel MacIvor’s newest play, three women from different generations clash over a tragic incident from their past.  
Tarragon Theatre, 30 Bridgman Ave., 416-531-1827. April 4–May 6.
