In a dystopian near-future, sex can kill, and people who test positive for an HIV-like virus are quarantined in a part of the city known as Beirut. This claustrophobic, emotional, smart and sexy play examines what happens when Torch (the coiled and intense David Campfield) is joined inside quarantine by Blue (Jessicah Neufeld), a young woman who is not as fragile as she might seem, and who refuses to renounce love and commitment in a time of plague. With Sean Williams as a perverse and sadistic guard, this play contains intense situations and adult themes. F, Sa 8pm; Su 6:30pm. Through 8/22. $15. Three Penny Theatre at the California Stage complex, 1721 25th Street; (530) 957-0818.
