Miriam Shor, perhaps best remebered by musical fans for her drag king turn in Hedwig and the Angry Inch, is all woman amongst a flowery bouquet at the Nov. 3 opening night party for Book of Days. Unlike Shor, Proof vet Kate Jennings Grant isn't in the Lanford Wilson play, but she doesn't mind smiling for the cameras.

Book of Days, set in Dublin, Missouri, concerns a community-theatre actress cast in a local staging of Shaw's St. Joan. The actress becomes involved with a local mystery when the cheese factory owner dies. She and her mother-in-law — a flinty, outspoken onetime hippie who swears, chain smokes and teaches at the local Christian college — lock horns with a local preacher and the factory owner's son. Book of Days, which features Alan Campbell, Miriam Shor and Tuck Milligan, continues at the Peter Norton Space through Dec. 8.
