A nice guy (Kurt Johnson) with problems picks up a manic woman (Dana Brooke) with baggage—against his will and despite his better judgment—and they set off for northern Michigan. Along the way, they run into a number of quirky characters (all played by the delightful Mitch Agruss) and a few deer. It’s less about the physical journey and more about the spiritual one, as they discover that things aren’t always what they seem. Written and directed by Buck Busfield, Northport Cottage is a holiday play without the obvious regalia. T 6:30pm, W 2pm and 6:30pm, Th and F 8pm, Sa 5pm and 9pm, Su 2pm. Through 1/2. $22-$30.
