As part of the Acts of Faith Festival, HATTheatre presents a tale of questioning faith with Tom Dudzick’s comedic “Over the Tavern.” In the Eisenhower years of the 1950s, 12-year-old Rudy Pazinski is starting to question family values and the Roman Catholic Church. That’s while dealing with his family, which includes a physically and psychologically wounded father who yells at them, a sister going through the confusion of sexual awakenings and an older, rebellious brother. When Rudy announces to the tyrannical ruler-wielding Sister Clarissa (played by Jody Smith Strickler) that instead of being confirmed in the church, he’d rather look around for a more fun religion, all hell breaks loose. The show also features Ken Moretti, Fawn LaBenz Matzer, Eric Brenner, Nick Dauley, Michael Tatum and Kathleen Baughn as the Pazinski family. “Over the Tavern” runs through Sunday, March 17, at HATTheatre. $12-$18. hattheatre.org.
