Somerville Theatre, Brattle Theatre, Coolidge Corner Theatre
Through May 1
The Independent Film Festival of Boston is back for its 17th go-around, and it’s as eclectic and community-oriented as ever.

Society of Arts & Crafts
April 25 - June 30
“Pried” puts the focus on LGBTQ craft artists working in various mediums, including ceramics, furniture making and jewelry. In this exhibit, artists ask probing questions about identity and work "that may not be made based around the image of a queer person."
‘Caroline, or Change’
Through May 11
“Caroline, or Change” takes place in the 1960s and debuted off-Broadway in 2003, but its themes and tensions could not be more relevant today. The Moonbox production of this musical, which centers around an African-American maid working for an upper-class Jewish family, is at once empathetic and unsentimental.

April 26 - May 19
Boston’s Israeli Stage presents its first play by a Palestinian-Israeli playwright. “The Return” tells the story of an encounter between a Palestinian mechanic and a Jewish Israeli woman, and the cultural and political chasm that divides them.
'Points of Intersection'
Urbanity Dance, one of Boston’s more innovative dance companies, presents the second half of its bi-annual creative residency, “Points of Intersection," an immersive, intimate performance featuring brand new choreography.
