Bloomsday. This sweet, extremely Irish story at Live Theatre Workshop tells the story of Robbie and Caithleen, who fell in love many years ago during a James Joyce literary tour in Dublin (told you it was extremely Irish). When they reunite after 35 years apart, they travel back in time to relive the unlikely, unstoppable events that brought them together. This show is by Steven Dietz, one of America’s most prolific playwrights. Showing Thursdays through Sundays from Sept. 2 to Oct. 9. 7:30 p.m. evening shows and 3 p.m. Sunday matinees. Live Theatre Workshop, 3322 E. Fort Lowell Road. $20 GA, $18 military/senior/student, $15 Thursdays and previews.
Historic Canoa Ranch tours. Have you ever paid a visit to the Raúl M. Grijalva Canoa Ranch Conservation Park? It’s 4,800 acres of land listed on the National Register of Historic Places, including hiking trails, a lake and a pollinator garden. And lucky for us, it reopened to the public earlier this month! They’re even doing guided tours every Saturday again. On these, interpretive guides share their knowledge about the history of the ranch and take visitors inside the buildings. 8:30 to 10 a.m. Saturdays through October. 5375 I-19 Frontage Road in Green Valley. $5.
Joel-Peter Witkin: Journeys of the Soul. Congratulations to the lovely Etherton Gallery for 40 years! They’re kicking off their anniversary celebration this weekend with an exhibition featuring internationally renowned photographer Joel-Peter Witkin, whose work examines tensions between heaven and hell, sexuality and death, and real bodies and conventional standards of beauty. The exhibition will be on display through Nov. 27. This is at their new location on 340 S. Convent. On Sunday, Sept. 19, Witkin & Witkin is showing at the Loft Cinema (3233 E. Speedway Blvd) at 2 p.m.
