"A Land of Plenty: Stories of Scarcity & Abundance" will feature stories by Stephanie Chavara, Minita Gandhi and Lott Hill. Doors open at 6pm, and the show starts at 8. Tickets are $18, though some pay-what-you-can tickets will be available at the door.

On Black Wednesday, Nov. 26, two shows vie for your attention, and eithr should give you plenty to talk about over the dinner table Thursday.

Miss Spoken, the female-centered reading series, returns to Gallery Cabaret, 2020 N. Oakley Ave., at 7pm. The theme this month is "Body Hair," and the featured readers are Alyssa Sorresso, Lillia Rissman, Maya Marshall, Samantha Irby, Lisa White and Jessica DiMaio. Carly Oishi and Rosamund Lannin cohost. There's no cover, but it's 21 and over.

Meanwhile, You're Being Ridiculous, the sassy, funny and fun storytelling show created by Jeremy Owens, is back at Mary's Attic, 5400 N. Clark St. in Andersonville. Hear stories on the theme "Confession" from Jim Bennett, Margaret Dunn, Dennis Frymire, Jonathan Mayo, Jeremy Owens, JH Palmer and Stephanie Sack.
