The North Plan
This clever, kickass comedy about a Homeland Security takeover contains “strong language, loud gunfire and rampant conspiracy theories.” The unconventional heroine is Tanya, a sassy petty criminal with no filters (Katie Rubin, in a knockout performance) who joins forces with a local bureaucrat and two police reps while battling a couple of H.S. officers. Audaciously funny. Th, F, Sa 8pm; Su 2pm; W 7pm. Through 2/24. $22-$32. Capital Stage, 2215 J St.; (916) 995-5464; www.capstage.org.
